On court with Jannik Sinner

We are supporting Jannik Sinner and his sporting development, believing firmly and openly in both the power of his example and the values he embodies every time he takes the court. The talent of this young Italian — who is already one of the most well-known tennis players on Earth — knows no bounds and is pivotal to this Italian success story.

The Italian player’s biography and results

Born in San Candido in the province of Bolzano, Sinner has redefined the expectations of an entire generation of racket-sport prodigies for the better, propelling Italian tennis to the top of the international circuit. The natural flair of his game, coupled with his innate instincts and total mastery of the court, make him a magnetic player in the eyes of tennis lovers and, at the same time, perfect for all those getting into the sport because of his feats. 

Having officially entered the ATP world rankings well before he reached adulthood, the wonderkid of Italian tennis has dismantled many sporting clichés by soaring in the charts and claiming a number of records at an early age. From his triumph at the Next Gen Atp Finals in Milan, Italy in 2019 to the hard-court title he won at the Sofia Open in November of the following year, Jannik has forged a career path whose greatness makes him one of the most intriguing and beloved sportsmen in Italy.

Quick with his hands and mind, his style is perfectly well-rounded and encapsulates the very best of the great champions of the past and present, who seem to have passed on their best shots to him.

One of Jannik Sinner’s big achievements this year was winning the ATP 250 tournament in Antwerp, making him the first Italian to win four titles in one year

Commitment on and off the court

Modern in his approach to the game and always smiling with his opponents and the public, Sinner perfectly embodies all the values of the Intesa Sanpaolo Sports Manifesto, making tenacity and dedication pivotal to his success as a talented player.

This firm commitment not only thrives on playing tennis, but also translates into real improvements for society as a whole, as evidenced by his "What's kept you moving" project promoted alongside the World Health Organization's campaign, whose admirable goal is to raise awareness among young people about the impact that the pandemic has had, and continues to have, on their mental health.

This major charitable endeavour saw Sinner joined by many entertainers, athletes and entrepreneurs, clearly demonstrating the importance of this issue worldwide.
