Questions regarding Jannik Sinner
Sinner shared facts about his personal life and other really intriguing information. The Italian originally stated his motivation for taking up tennis: “You make a mistake while skiing and you lose. One player cannot make a difference in soccer on their own.

Next, a few curiousities “Without the family’s support, none of this would have been possible. Off the field, I stay quiet and act normally, like they trained me to. I enjoy barbecuing, going karting, and hanging out with friends.
Tavern and disco? I haven’t been there, so no. I don’t really fit the mold. My family instilled in me the value of being a good person before becoming a great professional. This year, I really got into reading sports books like those by Ibrahimovic, Lindsey Vonn, and now LeBron. I enjoy going to bed right after dinner if I’m sleepy.”
