Sinner season continues in Challenger

Winning the Next Gen Finals, at home, as a wild card would have been a natural ending point for Jannik Sinner’s breakout 2019.

He was asked about playing the Davis Cup Finals after the Next Gen final.


“Sorry to say that I won’t be there, because we have to prepare for the next season. I’ve played too much this year. I’m too young,” he said, as coach/manager Ricardo Piatti gestured from the stands

But the teen continues this week at a Challenger near Val Gardena, Italy. He’ll highlight the night session in doubles Tuesday, and in singles Wednesday.
