Upon his triumphant return to Italy following his historic victory at the Australian Open, Jannik Sinner met with Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.
During their encounter, which carried a hint of awkwardness, Meloni enthusiastically directed Sinner’s attention to the televised moment of his championship point at the Australian Open.
Amidst the backdrop of the Italian flag and the gleaming Australian Open trophy, both Sinner and Meloni posed for photographs, capturing the significance of the moment. Additionally, Meloni took to Twitter to extend her heartfelt congratulations to Sinner, further acknowledging his remarkable achievement.
Jannik Sinner, long touted as a future grand slam champion, fulfilled those predictions by defeating Daniil Medvedev to clinch his inaugural grand slam title. Sinner also made a semifinal appearance at the 2023 Wimbledon Championships.
