Jannik Sinner dominates Stan Wawrinka, is in semifinals

Jannik Sinner in semifinals

The dream week in Rotterdam continues for Jannik Sinner who, after his fine victory against Tsitsipas, also won in two sets over Stan Wawrinka, deserving a place in the semifinals.

The South Tyrolean, fresh from his triumph in Montpellier and thus on a positive streak now for six matches, dominated the Swiss veteran, defeated 6-1 6-3.

Despite having achieved excellent results in skiing since childhood, at the age of 13 Jannik decided to devote himself exclusively to tennis, moving to Bordighera, at the court of Riccardo Piatti. It was a choice that would prove successful, as Sinner is the youngest Italian tennis player ever to enter the top 100 (October 2019) and to win an Atp title in the Open era (Sofia 2020). In addition, along with Matteo Berrettini, Jannik is the only Italian tennis player to have reached at least the round of 16 in all four Slams. For him, 2022 was the breakthrough year: he left Piatti to rely on Vagnozzi.
