Tennis Sensation Jannik Sinner: Discover Incredible Facts

Italian tennis player Jannik Sinner, 22, became the first man from his country to win a major since Adriano Panatta in 1976 when he triumphed in the Australian Open 2024, his maiden Grand Slam match.

Sinner overcame Daniil Medvedev, the top-seeded player in the world and the reigning winner, in an exciting five-set final, 3-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-3, after falling behind by two sets.


Sinner defeated 10-time Australian Open winner Novak Djokovic in a four-set quarterfinal, demonstrating incredible fortitude and tenacity in the face of pressure and exhaustion.

Sinner became the eighth man in history to overcome a two-set deficit in a Grand Slam final and the youngest male winner of the Australian Open since Djokovic in 2008.

Sinner’s victory at the Australian Open interrupted the 12-year domination of the “Big 3” (Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer), and it was heralded as a breakthrough for the next generation of tennis players.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, as well as other Italian athletes like footballer Gianluigi Buffon and skier Sofia Goggia, congratulated Sinner on his accomplishment.
