Italian teenager, Jannik Sinner, is about to play the biggest match of his career at the French Open 2020. Jannik Sinner acknowledges that Roland Garros, Rafael Nadal seems unbeatable, but he backs himself up to give it a fair go. Competing in front of a legend can be a tough call to opt for. Besides, Sinner determines some positivity to make it a fair win-win.
To his tag, Nadal has 12 French Open titles. Moreover, it is an unparalleled success ratio at a single Grand Slam.
The 2005 Roland Garros effort by Rafael Nadal marked the last time a tournament debutant advanced to the last eight in Paris for 15 years. With a spot on the line in this year’s semifinals, the Spaniard will face the man who ended Sunday’s drought: Jannik Sinner.
This year, he is facing some more challenging situations. He is going all out for number thirteen and will run into Sinner in the quarterfinals.
Jannik Sinner is conscious of the challenge ahead of him. For the 100th time when he encounters Sinner, Nadal will be walking onto the Parisian Terre Battue. In this case, the Spaniard is 97-2.
“Hoping To Play My Best Tennis”: Jannik Sinner
“I’m going to play Rafa Nadal in the next round, it’s not the easiest match, especially not at Roland Garros,” Sinner told reporters.
He also added, “I know his records and confidence while competing in Paris; it seems that nobody can beat him, but I am positive. Moreover, further stating that “I’m going to rest and see what happens, hoping to play my best tennis.”
Despite his inexperience, Sinner already has a positive head-to-head against the top ten players. Besides, Rafael Nadal definitely cares about the danger that he will face.
“I’m happy to be back in the quarters here in Paris,” Nadal said after his win over Sebastian Korda. “But, it’s a tough match coming.”
