This is not the least of his exploits: Sinner, who at the age of 22 became the fifth representative of Italian tennis to win a major title, captured the front page of the Gazzetta dello Sport from football king. For the sports daily with its pink pages which devotes its first nineteen pages to him and reduces Inter Milan's return to the top of Serie A to a simple article on the front page, he is "the king of tennis, the ragazzo (boy ) Golden".
“He is the boss of Italian sport because at 22 years old, he has already written history, he emanates freshness, strength, class and charisma (...) Alone, he embodies the spirit of a team from Italy like Alberto Tomba, Marco Pantani and Valentino Rossi before him,” la Gazzetta ignites.
The two other sports dailies are not left out: “From another world”, headlines the Corriere dello Sport about a final won in five sets against Daniil Medvedev by “Sinner the phenomenon”, while Tuttosport addresses him a simple, commanding “Grazie!” (thank you), in the caption of a photo of the big redhead all smiles with his trophy taken up by all the press.
His Australian odyssey, his journey, from the ski slopes of South Tyrol, this German-speaking province where he was born and where his parents let him live his childhood without wanting at all costs to make him a champion, at the top of world tennis, also fascinate the general press. “Jannik Sinner has made history,” says La Repubblicca. “Sinner is a legend,” adds Il Messaggero.
Corriere della Serra, for its part, discovered “Sinnerlandia”, “the land of all possibilities, the place where you can live your dreams if they are touched by the magic wand of Jannik Sinner”: “The red-haired baron, poetizes the first Italian daily in terms of circulation, enthusiasm, because it extends the dream. Sinnerlandia is destined for expansion. He is, finally, “The man of dreams” for La Stampa who sees in his coronation and his dazzling career a lesson for an entire country: Sinner is “the one who had the patience to build a great result and the courage to know wait (...) Watching Sinner is discovering that we are also different from the perception that people may have of us.
