Three days ago, he lifted the trophy at the Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan. On Wednesday, Jannik Sinner is back in action, kicking off his final tournament of the season on home soil in snowy Ortisei.
The 18-year-old Italian is set to compete at the ATP Challenger Tour event in northern Italy, located less than two hours from his hometown of San Candido. This is the 10th edition of the Sparkasse Challenger Val Gardena. Last year, Ugo Humbert lifted the trophy and Sinner is looking to follow in his fellow #NextGenATP’s footsteps.
The teenager opens against Austria’s Lucas Miedler in a sold-out night session. They have met twice already this year, with the Italian prevailing in straight sets in both Bergamo and Orleans.
Sinner has taken the Challenger circuit by storm this year, en route to his Milan breakthrough. In February, he became Italy’s youngest winner ever with his maiden title in Bergamo and joined elite company with a second crown in Lexington over the summer. The biggest mover to the Top 100 this year, he has soared more than 600 spots to a career-high No. 96 in the ATP Rankings.
