Diego Schwartzman believes Jannik Sinner is ‘destined to reach the top’

Jannik Sinner’s 2021 season has been nothing short of a dream come true. Sinner added the icing on the cake by winning the ATP Antwerp Open in straight sets over Diego Schwartzman.

The Italian has already won his fifth ATP singles title of his career and his fourth in 2021 as a result of his victory.

Sinner, who is currently rated 11th in the world, has a decent chance of breaking into the top 10. Even though he lost, Schwartzman praised the Italian and expressed his desire to see him succeed.

Sinner was compared to great players such as Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas by the Argentine.

Diego Schwartzman has high hopes for Jannik Sinner

This year, Italy’s Jannik Sinner is making a significant statement. Following his victory in Antwerp, the 20-year-old has won four hard court titles on the tour so far in 2021.

It’s by far his strongest season, and even the beaten finalist, Diego Schwartzman, sees a bright future ahead of him.

Even the Argentinian enjoyed Sinner’s high-profile game after this resounding victory.

“Sinner is 20 years old and already having a great career: he won 4 titles this year.

“Tsitsipas, Zverev and the other guys who are at the top also played at this level at a young age. I don’t compare, but Jannik is destined to reach the top,” he said.

Jannik Sinner dominated the competition from start to finish, winning without dropping a single set. He beat out some top players along the road, including Lorenzo Musetti, Lloyd Harris, and, eventually, Diego Schwartzman.

Sinner is ranked tenth out of a total of ten. With the ATP Finals on the horizon, the Italian is still in contention to qualify for the mega-event in his home country.

Jannik Sinner was ranked No. 13 in the world as he entered the European Open. Sinner has moved up to World No. 11 after gently winning the title.

Sinner will need some strong performances in the final weeks of the season to qualify for the Turin event.

The ATP Finals 2021 will take place in Turin, Italy, from November 14 to November 21. The competition is contested by the world’s top eight players.

It’ll be fascinating to watch who takes eighth place and qualifies for the event.
