Jannik Sinner’s first victory as number one with a dedication to his girlfriend

«I dedicate the trophy to the people close to me. To my girlfriend Anna who lost in the final in Berlin.” Jannik Sinner it no longer keeps the private sector private as it did until a few months ago. Since she confirmed the story with Anna Kalinskaya and said that he would not give up his confidentiality, some details he let slip. Not by mistake, but by choice.

The South Tyrolean tennis player beat his friend Hurkacz in the final of the Halle tournament. «Hubi it’s wonderful to share the pitch with you, playing the final against you is really special. Thanks to my team who pushes me every day, we have worked hard this week too. I thank my family and my dad who came here for the final. It’s a very important victory, it was a tough match, I knew I had to serve well.”

«It’s a great feeling, the first victory in a tournament on grass. Now there is Wimbledon and I can’t wait, last year I played well and reached the semi-finals. There’s definitely a bit of a difference but I’m going into it with more confidence, I have a week to prepare. I’m sorry for my girlfriend who lost in Berlin with five match points, but she had a great week too.” Anna Kalinskaya was beaten by Jessica Pegula in Berlin.

Jannik Sinner at the microphones of Sky Sports he added: «It means a lot to me to win today, but there’s a lot of work behind it. Over the years I’ve been trying to understand what works best, today I played in a controlled manner and played the important points well. I’m happy. My dad always told me to work, both when things are good and when they are bad. There’s no secret, both he and my mother gave me this mentality.”

For Sinner it is the fourth trophy this season, the first as number one in the world.
