Jannik Sinner can be a Grand Slam saint in 2024

Italy has always had a steady flow of solid men's tennis players without having a real standout star, but in Jannik Sinner they appear to have found one.

Sinner's success at the Australian Open marked the first time since 1976 that an Italian man had won a Grand Slam tournament, when Adriano Panatta lifted the French Open title.

That same year was the last time Italy won the Davis Cup until November 2023, with their men taking the team event title with a final success over Australia.

Sinner was the star of the show, not only in the final, but also in several other rounds leading up to the clash with the Aussies - with his performances confirming his place amongst the world’s top players.

The 22-year-old will now be striving to add further silverware to his growing array of honours throughout the remainder of 2024.

Sinner the Slam winner

Long regarded as a future Grand Slam champion, Sinner was able to make his dreams a reality in the first major of 2024 - overcoming Daniil Medvedev in a five-set thriller in the Australian Open final after losing the first two sets.

Sinner's victory over Medvedev in the final at the Rod Laver Arena meant the Italian had defeated three of the world's top five in Melbourne, having previously prevailed over Andrey Rublev and Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals and semi-finals respectively.

The talented youngster's glorious triumph is also the first time a player not named Djokovic, Federer or Nadal had won the tournament in the past decade.

His battling, gritty effort to edge out Medvedev in a pulsating final proved Sinner has a champion's mentality to go along with his revered technical skillset.

Sinner displayed outstanding endurance to fight back from two sets down and drag Medvedev into deep waters. and by the time the deciding set came around it appeared as though there would only be one winner in Melbourne.
 

More to come?

Sinner's exploits in Australia will naturally lead to increased expectations upon the Italian for the remainder of the ATP Tour in 2024.

Having finished 2023 in style with Davis Cup success for his country and victory in the ATP Finals in Turin, before going on to start the new year with a bang in Melbourne, Sinner will likely have a spring in his step as he prepares to challenge for further titles.

The Italian's next shot at a Grand Slam will come in May's French Open, where the world number four will be eager to improve upon a disappointing showing at the tournament last year with Sinner upset in the second round by German Daniel Altmaier after failing to take two match points.

As the most prestigious Grand Slam of all in the eyes of many, Sinner will also be desperate to get his hands on a first Wimbledon title having reached the semi-finals at the All England club last year before he was eliminated by seven-time winner Djokovic.

If Sinner's performances on the hard courts of the Australian Open are anything to go by, the Italian will also fancy his chances of success at the US Open in autumn, with the gifted youngster falling at the fourth round in 2023 against Alexander Zverev.
