Italian rising star Jannik Sinner has had a fantastic season so far. He has a win-loss record of 48-18 and claimed four out of five of his ATP tour-level titles this year. Most recently, he won his fifth title at the 2021 European Open after defeating No.2 seed Diego Schwartzman in straight sets(6-2, 6-2).

Significantly, the 20-year-old Italian also became the youngest five-time ATP Tour champion since Novak Djokovic(19, 2007).  

“I felt great on the court. I moved well. Today I also served better, I think I felt great, but in tennis every day is different. You have to be careful. I think I played well the whole tournament, to be honest, from the first point to the last point,” Sinner said in the post-match interview in Antwerp. 

“I like to play indoors. I tried to push the ball (through the court) today, which for me was important against Diego because he is moving very well. He’s not missing so many shots. For me, it was important trying to adapt the game somehow against him.”

Jannik Sinner will next compete at the Vienna Open 2021(Erste Bank Open 2021) in Austria, where he was seeded No.7 and will meet formidable opponent Reilly Opelka in the opening encounter. 

Sinner further added, “I think I can be very proud about the level I played. On the other way, tomorrow I go to Vienna. There’s another tournament already. There are different conditions.” 

“I won in Washington and then I lost the first round in Toronto. I’m trying to not (let) this happen in Vienna, hopefully. It’s going to be a tough opponent (against Reilly Opelka).”
