Jannik Sinner‘s focus has shifted to the upcoming European clay season after his Miami Open crown on Sunday (March 31). After he cruised past Bulgaria’s Grigor Dimitrov, the new World No. 2 admitted that he doesn’t have much time to celebrate.

Sinner dethroned Carlos Alcaraz from the second spot in the rankings when it was updated on Monday. At the same time, the 22-year-old has lost just one match this season. He previously won the Australian Open and the Rotterdam Open. And as he now eyes titles on clay as well, he won’t dwell much on his victory now.

When you win, you realize that it’s really special, like this, yes, but it’s a moment. There's not much time to enjoy this.
Jannik Sinner said after the final in the press conference

Sinner recalled how feelings of victory last for just a couple of days before he gets back to practice for the next tournament. So as the next tournament, the Monte Carlo Masters is just a week away, Sinner has no time to enjoy his success in Miami.

You know, after Australia, I live these moments, three or four days, and then after, I get back to work. It was the same in Rotterdam, and it’s the same here because you don’t have time to, yeah, to enjoy yourself, you know. So this is also how I am because maybe there are players who enjoy it a little bit for longer.

Jannik Sinner’s next main goal is the French Open

Playing on clay needs a high level of stamina and Jannik Sinner believes he worked a lot in the gym to build the endurance needed while playing on clay courts. His coaches, Simone Vagnozzi and Darren Cahill understand what the tennis player needs to improve, as the 22-year-old credited them for his success.

The 22-year-old revealed he would start training for the clay season from Thursday this week. Though Sinner has struggled on clay, his main goal on clay is winning the title at the French Open.

Physically I'm in a different shape than I was last year, and the clay is a lot physical.
Jannik Sinner said

Before Grigor Dimitrov, Sinner got the better of Daniil Medvedev who got thrashed easily in straight sets in the semifinal. That was also the rematch of the 2024 Australian Open.
