Sinner's Coach Sheds Light On His Upcoming Schedule After Roland Garros Disappointment

by Zachary Wimer

Jannik Sinner didn't finish off the 2024 Roland Garros the way he wanted, but his coach revealed his upcoming schedule, and he'll be back on the courts fairly soon.

The Italian player led Carlos Alcaraz 2-1 in sets in their semi-final clash at Roland Garros, which Alcaraz ultimately won. The Spaniard then went on to win the tournament by beating Alexander Zverev in the final, which was a pretty disappointing finish for Sinner.

He seemed in control of that match when things went south for him, but he at least secured his place as world number one after the major in the French capital. The next time he plays a tennis tournament, he'll play it as world number one, and we now know which event it will be.

According to his coach, Simone Vagnozzi, who spoke to SuperTennisTV, it will be the Halle Open, the only preparation event he'll play before Wimbledon, where he'll be one of the favorites to win again.

"He will play in Halle where he will try to become familiar with the surface. We know that the first rounds at Wimbledon are always very complicated with the grass still beautiful green and fresh."

"We must be ready. As the tournament progresses, I think Jannik can play better and better. The service has improved a lot in the last period as well as the confidence at the net."

Sinner has been a solid performer on grass for much of his career, so many wonder what will happen this year when he's playing at an even higher level. He'll certainly be one of the favorites, if not the top favorite, depending on whether Novak Djokovic plays at SW19.

"I don't think there will be any special effects, he must continue on the path he is on. Sometimes we say to cook the best pasta possible: this means not putting too much sauce, but put the right amount."

"And put that pinch of parmesan on top, but not too much because it becomes sickening and not too little because it becomes not very tasty."
