Sinner Dismisses 'Unbeatable' Tag After Another Convincing Victory

Sinner Dismisses 'Unbeatable' Tag After Another Convincing Victory

by Zachary Wimer

Jannik Sinner started his 2024 Indian Wells campaign with an easy win, but after the match, he dismissed the notion that he was unbeatable.

Sinner might be uncomfortable being called unbeatable, but that's what he's been so far this year. The Italian finished the Australian Open without any losses, obviously lifting the trophy.

He did the same thing in Rotterdam, winning the trophy as well. He also played at the Kooyong Exhibition and finished that one without any losses.

Counting all of these matches so far, even the exhibition one and the most recent one he played at Indian Wells, Sinner is literally unbeaten with a 15-0 record. He's just been that good.

Thanasi Kokkinakis played a good match early, but he couldn't touch him. He remained competitive for about six games, and after that, Sinner easily took control of the match.

The Italian, however, doesn't like to be called unbeatable. He thinks of himself as very beatable, but he prepared well for these matchups, which makes it very hard to beat him.

"No, I'm not unbeatable. I'm just well-prepared. You know, I worked really hard to be in this position. Obviously it's a position where, you know, you dream of because, you know, winning a Grand Slam, that's I think everyone's dream, but in the other way, you know, you travel here, the conditions are different and then you have to find a way somehow."

He's not wrong because all tennis players are beatable, of course. Some are harder to beat than others, but the better the player prepares, the more likely they are to succeed.

That's a rule for anything in life, and it also applies to tennis. He traveled to Indian Wells early, and it worked out well for him at the start of the first ATP Masters 1000 tournament of the season.

" We came here earlier trying to prepare it. I felt better day after day. As we saw today it can be breezy, and then it stops. You know, you have to be very, yeah, you have to see the situation and then trying to be ready."
