It is a historic moment for Italian tennis as their own Jannik Sinner becomes the World No.1 after years of struggle in the top 10. From the start of the year, the Italian has been unstoppable, reaching at least the semi-finals of every tournament he has played in.

At the French Open, Sinner was in touching distance of his career-best ranking and was banking on Novak Djokovic’s run for the win. The Serbian had to reach the finals to remain as the World No.1 but that was not meant to be as he suffered a meniscus tear in his right knee and pulled out of the tournament. 

With that, Sinner becomes the first Italian since 1973 to reach the peak of the rankings and dominate the entire ATP draw. Recently, the 22-year-old took some time off to talk about his latest achievement in a recent interview with AP News.

They (other players) have nothing to lose against me and I have everything to lose, but that's what's exciting. We have to work to have different solutions on the ground and I hope that this will be my next step.

In the interview, he spoke about the incredible achievement and how the mindsets of the opponents will change from now onwards. He is excited about the challenge and wants to prepare better for the other opponents.

A tall white trophy with a globe was presented to Sinner, who was all dressed up in a unique Gucci jacket that went well with the white shirt inside. Moreover, this was not the only gift he received from the ATP. 

Just as Sinner was officially declared as World No.1, the ATP released a video montage of tennis icons congratulating him. Legends like Roger Federer, John McEnroe, Andy Murray, and more were featured as they wished the 22-year-old. 

Now, Sinner gears up for the third quarter of the tennis season and hopes to play better on grass. Currently, in his best form, Sinner would look to try to win another Slam if possible.
