Listen junior,

Errani/Vinci formed one of the most formidable doubles partnerships in history, reaching 8 slam finals in a 3 year period and winning five.

Both were top tenners in singles, and both reached a slam final. Vinci became a hero to the whole world when she crushed Serena's dreams.


But they were only the appetizer, Musetti, Sinner, and Nardi are the main course.
That is funny when your greatest achievement is beating Serena in the semifinals of the US Open. I would thing the greatest achievement would be winning the USO but she didnt.

It will be cool to see who crops up out of the young pool of current players and juniors. I would still love to see a deep Fognini run in a slam though. It would be electric.
 
I'm italian and I understand your enthusiasm, but you guys have to leave them in peace.
Look at BerrettGOAT per example, he repeatedly stated that one of the keys to his success was him not being strong too early(article is in italian sorry).
It allowed him to stay away from distractions, focus on himself, live a normal life and become a more mature person.
Look at the bleakness and the sadness in the eyes of this old man, Gianluigi Quinzi. Please don't jinx Italy's golden generation.

With Fognini, Berrettini and now Sinner it's a pity Davis Cup no longer exists. Italy could have been a real favourite.
 
Let's ask Jannik if he's Italian or German.

In Alto Adige / Sudtirol there have long been talks about dual citizenship. But you feel Italian, right?
I feel Italian and I am Italian. Totally. Even more so since I've been living in Bordighera. At this point, I probably even speak Italian better than German. I'd love to play the Davis Cup for Italy, and I suppose I wouldn't mind winning it.

:cool:

Not so sure. Berretini doesn't impress me that much. He is a great player but I don't see him as a future top-player or potential Slam winner. Fognini is already more than 30 and is way too unstable. Cechinato is only good on clay and will likely never play a SF again. I still don't know Musetti well but it's way too soon to make predictions.

We'll see for Sinner. Also way too soon to predict anything serious. Next year will learn us a lot more about him.
