Sinner Brilliance

Jannik had a first serve % of 88% in the match which is equally as impressive as his fearsome groudstrokes. Got Dimitrov in the R16 on Friday who has to be confident after slapping Nishioka 6-1, 6-0. Should be a good match and if he wins that he'd make the quarters of a Masters 1000 for the first time. Awaiting him there would be the winner of Shapovalov or Fognini/Humbert - alll winnable match ups, although hoping its Fog for a domestic derby.

Just hope he will continue to progress. Seen too many times young good players never do.

What is his potential? What can he come better at?
His serve and groundies are already top notch, impressed with his droppers as well which is an important tool to have in the bag on clay. His demeanour on court is the personification of cool - a trait a lot of the current next gen desperately need. He looks like a top tenner all day long and fingers crossed that his development continues unhindered so his full potential can be realised.

Promising player but he choked pretty badly to lose the 2nd set and he did get a ball abuse warning. Let's just see him play some more higher level competitive matches before jumping the gun on his mentality.

Understood - looking a little further into the future but has that potential. It is nice to get carried away with young brilliance every now and again. That is his second top 10 win of the year.
he has potential, no doubt about it.
I think so far nobody tried to argue it.

what some here are saying, let him back up this success, keep working and celebrate once he gets to the top.

It should be noted that this high percentage is due to Jannik serving kicks instead of flatter serves intentionally done for more consistency. That aside, rooting for Sinner to make a deep run at this tournament

do you think Italian men's tennis with Lorenzo Musetti and Sinner might have a golden age like italian womens tennis had a little while ago?

Its scary how good these guys are technically. Sinner could maybe develop a better net game and work out how to transition to net really effectively to make use of those penetrating groundstrokes and capitalize on weak replies.

That would be the dream if something like that happened to Italian men’s tennis again! We also need another WC victory in football :D

Sinner a set up 6-4 and 2-3 in the second - had 2 break points on Dimi's serve which I hope he doesn't regret not taking. Humbert or Shapo waiting for the winner in quarters.
 
Sinner is a champion. He thrives under pressure and increases his level when it matters the most. Barring injuries, he will win 5+ Slams.

nvm: that was a horrible overhead. I hope he recovers from that.
