Jannik Sinner lifts lid on brutal schedule immediately after winning Miami Open | Tennis | Sport

Jannik Sinner revealed that he will only have three or four days off after winning the Miami Open. With just three months of the year complete, the Italian has already lifted his third title. But there won’t be much time to celebrate before he turns his attention to the clay courts, where he believes he could struggle.

Sinner showed why he has been the man to beat so far this season as he claimed his 12th career title and his third of 2024. So far this year, the 22-year-old has a 22-1 record with his only defeat coming in the Indian Wells semi-final.

He will overtake Carlos Alcaraz and rise to a career-high of No. 2 when the rankings update on Monday. But there is no rest for the wicked, as Sinner will be back to work in just a few days’ time as he outlined his gruelling schedule immediately after lifting the trophy.

« My form the end of last year until now, I’ve been very, very consistent and the way we practice, trying to have all these kinds of situations on the practice court and this makes me stronger, » Sinner told Sky Sports, addressing his unstoppable few months. « And let’s see now, it’s a new chapter now. The clay is coming. »

Sinner is hoping that his confidence will help him on the clay, where he feels he has more difficulty than on hard and grass courts. And he is ready to put in the work to improve his game on the surface, as he will be back to training by the end of next week.

He continued: « Me on clay, I struggle a little but more usually so let’s see. But for sure I’m coming in with more confidence so let’s see what’s coming. Even less time to adapt because we might start Thursday, Friday to practice and hopefully I will be ready. But it’s a good moment for me. »

Sinner’s good run of form started at the end of last year, when he won titles in Beijing and Vienna, reached the final of the ATP Finals, and helped Italy lift the Davis Cup. He has lost just three matches since the US Open in September, and he detailed what it felt like to hit a purple patch.
