Jannik Sinner talked about his post-Australian Open itinerary, which wasn’t particularly exciting due to his desire to stay fit.

Last month, in Melbourne, Sinner achieved his first Grand Slam victory by defeating Novak Djokovic, the reigning champion, in the semifinal and then thrillingly defeating an inspired Daniil Medvedev in the final. He won the Australian Open, making history as the first Italian to do it.

When the 22-year-old got back home, he was granted the privilege of seeing President Sergio Mattarella, Prime Minister Giovanni Meloni, and other officials. During the presidential ceremony, Sinner reveled in the presence of his Davis Cup colleagues.

A tennis player’s career can be drastically altered by winning a Grand Slam. In addition to receiving a huge salary, the level of media and fan scrutiny increases immediately.
Only a few days after winning the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup, Sinner has already seen an increase in her social media following. Furthermore, sponsors also show up, each with their most lucrative benefits.
In order to enjoy the moment and spend time with their loved ones, athletes who win Grand Slam events also choose to take a three- to four-week break from the sport.

It’s been a comparatively brief time of joy and rest for Sinner. He is back competing at the Rotterdam Open this week, where he won his second-round match on Wednesday night and is currently ranked #1.

Even after winning the Australian Open, Sinner stated in an interview with Nederlandse Omroep Stichting that training remained his “top priority.” He continued by saying that he declined “many things” in order to concentrate on his tennis.

“You thank everyone and have a wonderful moment. Conversely, though, you have to retrain and begin from scratch. I’m hoping to perform well in this new tennis tournament.”

“Going back to training was my first priority, so I had to say no to a lot of requests. The most crucial thing is that I returned to training after taking a few days off.”
