“Daniil Medvedev is my most challenging opponent,” says Jannik Sinner.
Jannik Sinner‘s second clay-court competition of the 2023 season will be at Barcelona. There is no time to back out because the Italian has opted to return to the court on Wednesday, April 19, to compete for the Conde de Godó trophy.
Sinnern competed in his first match against Diego Schwartzman of Argentina, who he had previously defeated in the Principality of Monaco, in an effort to go through the opening hurdle and secure a spot in the round of 16.
Sinner prevailed in the contest and advanced to the Spanish competition’s next round. The Italian covered a wide range of issues on the eve of the match in an interview with ATP Media, which was also covered by Eurosport. The Italian player was questioned about something in particular.
There isn’t a player I don’t enjoy playing against, but I currently view playing against one as a really difficult challenge, which is why I train. Daniil Medvedev is the one. Face to face, he significantly loses ground in the courtroom.
However, these are the games that, after losing, when I leave the field, I make every effort to get ready for the following game. I can determine my level even better in this approach. I therefore say him because of this. The fact that the Russian athlete had previously defeated the young Italian tennis star is no accident.

Sinner also discussed the Barcelona ATP 500 in the interview. The competition is significant to him since, in any case, the playing surface differs from that in Monte-Carlo.
As a result, the first round will be quite challenging, and I’ll need to try to adjust to the surface straight away. “I want to try to advance in the competition,” he continued. I’ve always performed well in this competition, and I enjoy Barcelona.
I was unable to participate last year, but this year I’m ready, so let’s see what I can achieve. As usual, I’ll give everything I’ve got.
