paolo bertolucci has published a screenshot that shows again the results that other tennis players have achieved at the same age as jannik sinner. «Read carefully,» wrote the former Italian tennis player. The first comparison is with Roger Federer.
The Swiss’ best ranking was world number 8: Sinner is behind him by just one position. As for the number of finals played and won, however, the difference is clear: the former number one had won three of the six played, while the blue has a positive balance with six to one.
The other comparisons also see Jannik Sinner as the favourite. Tsitsipas had pushed himself up to seventh in the rankings, but he also had a negative balance in terms of finals won. The Russians are clearly behind in the ranking and in wins, with Medvedev even at zero.
The only one who was ahead of Jannik Sinner was Alexander Zverev: best ranking number 3 in the world and six finals won, out of 10 total disputed.
Jannik Sinner is back at the center of the debate after the loss in Cincinnati.
The Italian number one did not make it past the round of 16 of the tournament, losing to Felix Auger-Aliassime in straight sets. The South Tyrolean had managed to gain a foothold in the first two sets, managing to earn two match points before a potential tie break.
The non-conversion of those, however, has changed the course of the following moments: it was the Canadian who first won the second set tiebreak, then the decisive third set and finally the match. For that moment, which got out of Sinner’s hands, several criticisms came.
«I believed it. I was probably wrong. He will continue to be a very good player. Beyond that, he is not good. 21 years is enough,» Claudio Guerrini, a radio and television announcer, wrote on Twitter. A post that has resulted in several criticisms, especially the personal reference.
Therefore, the results of other great champions were analyzed, comparing what they had done at the same age as the Italian tennis player.
