Rising Star Jannik Sinner Has a Star-Studded Sponsor Roster (Which Includes Rolex, Gucci, And Formula 1)

Italian sensation Jannik Sinner is taking the tennis world by storm. Sinner was a skiing champion between ages 8 and 12, but then he dedicated himself to tennis. At the 2023 Wimbledon Championships, he reached the semifinals – his best grand slam results to date. He also reached the year-end ATP finals that year where he lost to Novak Djokovic.

Sponsors have lined up to sign Sinner before he hits the big leagues. He has an impressive list of sponsors including Nike, Head, Alfa Romeo, Lavazza, Parmigiano Reggiano, Technogym, Gucci, F1, and Rolex.

At the age of 13, the renowned Italian coach Riccardo Piatti discovered him and persuaded him to pursue tennis as a full-time endeavor. Sinner honed his tennis skills at Piatti’s academy located in Bordighera, Italy. Notably, Piatti has previously collaborated with tennis luminaries such as Ivan Ljubicic, Novak Djokovic, Richard Gasquet, and Borna Coric. Opting for a strategic move toward long-term success, Sinner parted ways with Piatti in 2022.

Sinner’s prowess on the court is evident through his notable achievements, including reaching the quarterfinals at both the Australian Open , French Open, and the US Open, and semifinals at Wimbledon. Over the course of his career, he has amassed a substantial prize money total, exceeding $17 million.

Present and former players have ordained Sinner to be the next big thing in tennis. His poise on the tennis court and his ability to handle pressure has won accolades from almost everyone in tennis.

Sinner mostly skipped juniors and started playing futures and challengers. He quickly found success competing against players much older than him.

Sinner loves Eminem’s music. His favorite tennis player is Roger Federer. Sinner is represented by Star Wing Sports.

One of the main reasons why I love F1, whether that’s watching, karting with my friends, or racing in a simulator, is because I feel there’s a lot of synergies between tennis and racing. I feel that in both sports it’s all about the 1% and it’s the small details that make a huge difference.”
