Jannik Sinner, the young gun from Italy is a name to reckon with in the world of tennis. The 20-year-old is often regarded as the next big thing in tennis and rightly so. In the 2021 season, he has been in spectacular form off-late. His title-winning performances at the Sofia Open and European Open have also improved his rankings drastically.
Sinner recently reached a magnificent milestone before even turning 21. He has now entered into the top 10 ATP rankings after putting up brilliant performances back-to-back. Recently, the superstar from Italy celebrated the career milestone with another legendary player.
Sinner, coach and Sharapova celebrate in Paris after the young Italian break into top 10
Sinner made his top 10 debut this week and celebrated the monumental achievement with Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova. Winner of five-time Grand Slam titles and regarded as one of the fiercest competitors the game has ever seen, Maria was visiting Paris when she was spotted with Sinner and his coach.
Sharapova posted a video on her Instagram handle where Sinner can be seen a little confused about what is being served to him. To our understanding, the trio was enjoying a hefty dose of chocolate to celebrate the incredible achievement of the Italian.
Jannik Sinner has a special connection with Maria Sharapova. Sinner’s current Riccardo Piatti worked with Sharapova during the final stages of her career. Piatti also posted a tweet on the get-together in Paris, where he termed Sharapova his ‘favorite number 1 ever’.
