Jannik Sinner ITA, August 16, 2001
Jannik Sinner, As world number 4, he came to Melbourne with a clear goal: to improve his technique and physical condition with a view to the Australian Open 2024. The Italian, known for his commitment and dedication, has chosen a unique preparation path, avoiding official tournaments and focusing his energy on appearing at the Kooyong Classic, scheduled to take place from January 10th to 12th.
This unconventional approach, specifically aimed at technical and physical training, is a strategy aimed at optimizing his preparation for the Australian Slam, which takes place from January 14th to 28th. Since arriving in Australia, Sinner has taken the opportunity to intensify his practice and work on game plans and tactical strategies. It’s clear that his team, led by the Vagnozzi/Cahill duo, is trying to develop a more varied game for Jannik so that he can compete more effectively against opponents who could cause him trouble.
A particular focus was on the transition to the net and improving his powerful forehand. Sinner is working hard to make this shot more stable and effective, especially from the right side of the pitch. The goal is to achieve a level of efficiency comparable to what he has already shown with his backhand, a shot that is more natural to him.
Sinner’s workouts follow this direction and the power and fluidity with which he hits the ball during training sessions bodes well. As the countdown to the start of the Australian Open ticks down, it’s clear Sinner is determined to be fully prepared. His ambitions are high and with the game constantly evolving, the Italian is certainly one of the players to watch for the first Grand Slam of the year.
