Coach Darren Cahill praised Simone Vagnozzi in addition to congratulating Jannik Sinner for his victory in Umag. Sinner recruited Vagnozzi to his coaching staff in February after parting ways with his longtime mentor Riccardo Piatti. Then, during the most recent grass season, Sinner expanded his staff by bringing on Cahill, one of the most renowned tennis coaches.
Sinner won his first championship of the year on Sunday after defeating Carlos Alcaraz in the Umag final, 6-7 (5) 6-1 6-1. ” Greetings, Jannik. Big props to you and Simone who have done an enormous amount of great work since early this year.
It’s wonderful to see Umag experience such a magnificent culmination. The group’s first victory is noteworthy. Looking forward to more of exciting fights with Carlos in the future. Two quality inspiring young men.”
In his third competition with Cahill, Sinner triumphs overall.
Sinner and Cahill’s first championship as a coach/player team came in the third event they played in together.
Sinner hadn’t even made it to a semifinal in 2022 until Umag. After claiming the title, Sinner stated, “I am certainly really thrilled. “Up until now, I’ve had a difficult year. I’ve had some unfortunate situations, but we’ve worked hard to play better, to be better players, and to be better people.
I’m therefore thrilled to be receiving a prize this year, but I also realize that I still have a lot to learn. All that matters is the procedure. Sinner would undoubtedly experience a significant confidence boost before the US Open if he wins Umag.
Sinner isn’t competing this week but he is expected to kick off his North American hard court swing next week at the Montreal Masters. Sinner advanced to the quarterfinals of this year’s Wimbledon, and he will undoubtedly aim to win the US Open or at least make it to his first Grand Slam final.
