Sinner Opens Up About His Dislike Of Social Media And Decision To Stay Away From It

by Zachary Wimer

Jannik Sinner found himself back in Italy after his Australian Open triumph and got a hero's welcome in his country.

The Italian basically cemented himself as the greatest Italian tennis player of all time, despite still being only 22. He's fairly young with a bright future and many more trophies to be won but he's already quite a few of them.

The biggest by far came recently at the Australian Open and it was the crowning moment of his career. Getting there took a while, but it was fully worth it, and he was certainly celebrated for it upon returning to Italy.

He was invited to Rome, where he met with the current Italian Prime Minister, Giorgia Meloni, who was delighted that the Italian won the trophy. He also visited the famous Colosseum, where he posed with the trophy, and he held a press conference where a lot of reporters gathered to ask him some questions.

One of those is about his lack of activity on social media, which mostly gets updated in relation to his tennis and rarely features something from his private life. The Italian is a private person and rarely talks about his private life, but he shared that he generally doesn't like social media as much.

"I tell the kids to be careful. Because maybe today someone is sick but on social media people post photos where everything is fine. I personally live better without social media and I will continue to do so. I don't like social media. That's not the truth, you see certain things but they're not those."

That's atypical for somebody of his age, but really refreshing to see. As for Sinner, he'll take some time off and possibly return at the Rotterdam Open, after he withdrew from the upcoming Marseille Open in France.
