Tennis player Jannik Sinner is currently among the world’s young players. In 2016, he began competing on the ITF Junior Circuit, the top junior circuit organized by the International Tennis Federation (ITF). He shifted mostly to the professional circuit after the end of 2017, despite having only little success as a junior. The only higher-level Grade A tournament he entered was the Trofeo Bonfiglio.
He never competed in the main draw of any high-level Grade 1 singles events. He never participated in any of the junior Grand Slam competitions. His career-high junior rating was a comparatively low No. 133 due to the fact that he played in so few top-tier tournaments.
In February 2019 in Bergamo, Sinner—then 17 years and 6 months—won his maiden ATP Challenger championship. He made history by becoming the nation’s earliest-ever Italian Challenger champion. He climbed more than 200 ranks in the ATP rankings after winning the match, reaching No. 324. At the 2021 European Open, he reached the final without losing a set, reaching his sixth career final.
He reached the Vienna Open semifinal in November 2021, and that performance made him the first male player born in the 2000s to enter the top 10. Being the fifth Italian to do so in Melbourne, he made it to the quarterfinals of a major tournament at the Australian Open.
