Italian sensation Jannik Sinner has left a great impression on tennis fans. The 19-year-old is currently in the semis of the Miami Open 2021 and will play against Roberto Bautista Agut there. He looks like a strong contender for the title, and fans will surely want to see him play under pressure.
In a recent interview, Jannik Sinner’s coach Riccardo Piatti revealed how he trains him. He reflected that the Italian player has no limits, and he just lives to play more and more tennis.
“Jannik lives for tennis, he has no limits. I showed him a lot of matches of Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic, but only the ones where they played bad and they still won,” said the coach.
Watching the matches of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic is not a unique strategy. However, the interesting part is that Sinner’s coach only makes him watch those matches where they won despite playing bad tennis.
The coach believes that this is a tactic that will help Sinner gain self-confidence and not give up even on his worst days. Sinner definitely has a lot of potential and can be a big name in tennis one day.
“Have to learn how to win ugly”- Coach of Jannik Sinner
Even though Sinner lost in the very first round of the Australian Open 2021 after a tough fight, he has been brilliant since then. Stunningly, he is all set to break into the top 25 players in the ATP rankings shortly after the Miami Open 2021.
This formula of watching bad matches of the Big Three has clearly been working for Sinner. His coach feels that a player should know how to win ugly.
“You have to learn how to win ugly,” added Piatti in the interview.
Jannik Sinner will play Roberto Bautista Agut today and will hope to secure his place in the finals. The match will not be easy as Agut is coming into the semis after eliminating World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev in straight sets in the quarters. Will the 19-year-old Sinner be able to lift his first ATP Masters 1000 title in Miami this time?
