Bio He is an Italian professional tennis player.
He is currently ranked as the world No. 1 in singles by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) making him the highest-ranked Italian singles player in history.
Since making his professional debut in 2018, Sinner has won 14 ATP Tour singles titles, including a Grand Slam championship at the 2024 Australian Open and two Masters 1000 titles. Sinner has reached the semifinals at Wimbledon, the quarterfinals of the remaining two major tournaments and the finals of three Masters 1000 tournaments, including the final of the 2023 Canadian Open, which he won. In 2023 he played in the final at the Nitto ATP Finals in Turin and later led Italy to winning the Davis Cup. On February 19, 2024 with then a career high ATP singles ranking of world No. 3 achieved, Sinner became the highest-ranked Italian tennis player in history, male or female.

Sinner grew up in northern Italy in the region of South Tyrol. He was active in skiing, football, and tennis as a child. After winning a national championship in skiing at age eight, Sinner switched his focus to tennis at age thirteen and moved to the Italian Riviera to train with veteran coach Riccardo Piatti. Despite limited success as a junior, Sinner began playing in professional events at age 16 and became one of the few players to win multiple ATP Challenger Tour titles at age 17. He won the ATP Newcomer of the Year award in 2019 after breaking through into the top 100, reaching his first ATP semifinal, and winning the Next Generation ATP Finals in Milan.
Sinner continued his rise into the top 50 in 2020 with his first top 10 victories, a French Open quarterfinal (becoming the youngest quarterfinalist in men's singles since Novak Djokovic in 2006), and a maiden ATP title at the 2020 Sofia Open. He had a strong start to 2021, highlighted by his second ATP title in a row and a Masters 1000 runner-up at the Miami Open. On November 1, 2021, he became the first player born in the 2000s to enter the ATP top 10. He became the first teenage ATP 500 champion since the category was renamed in 2009 by winning the 2021 Citi Open. After reaching his first major semifinal at the 2023 Wimbledon Championships, Sinner won his first Masters 1000 title at the 2023 Canadian Open in Toronto. He finished the season by reaching the final of the ATP Finals and leading Italy to win the 2023 Davis Cup title for the first time in 47 years.

At the 2024 Australian Open, Sinner defeated world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the semifinals to reach his first major final, ending Djokovic's undefeated 20–0 (in semifinals or later) Australian Open record. He then defeated Daniil Medvedev in a five-set final, coming back from two sets down to win his first major title.

Sinner was born to Hanspeter and Siglinde Sinner in Innichen in the predominantly German-speaking region of South Tyrol in northern Italy.
Sinner began both skiing and playing tennis at age three. He was one of Italy's top junior skiers from eight to twelve years old, winning a national championship in giant slalom at age eight and earning a national runner-up at the age of twelve.
While training in skiing, Sinner gave up tennis for a year at the age of seven before his father pushed him to return to the sport. When he resumed playing, he began working with Heribert Mayr as his first regular coach. Nonetheless, tennis was still only his third priority behind skiing and football.
At the age of thirteen, Sinner decided to give up skiing and football in favour of tennis. He preferred it over skiing because he wanted to compete directly against an opponent and to have more margin of error over the course of an entire match. He also wanted to be in an individual sport where he could make all of the decisions, an opportunity he would not have in a team sport like football. He decided to move on his own to Bordighera on the Italian Riviera to train at the Piatti Tennis Centre under Riccardo Piatti and Massimo Sartori (the coach of Andreas Seppi), a decision which his parents supported. At the centre, Sinner lived with the family of Luka Cvjetković, one of his coaches. Before Sinner began training in tennis full-time with Piatti, he had been playing only twice a week.

Sinner began playing on the ITF Junior Circuit, the premier junior tour which is run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF), in 2016. Despite having limited success as a junior, he moved mainly to the professional tour following the end of 2017. He never played the main draw of any high-level Grade 1 events in singles, and the only higher-level Grade A tournament he entered was the Trofeo Bonfiglio. He followed up an opening round loss at Italy's Grade A tournament in 2017 with a quarterfinal in 2018. That was the only junior event he played in 2018. He never played any of the junior Grand Slam tournaments. Because he entered so few high-level tournaments, Sinner's career-high junior ranking was a relatively low No. 133.

Sinner wasn't too focused on the junior circuit, and he began playing on the ITF Men's Circuit in early 2018. With his low ranking, he could initially be directly accepted into only ITF Futures events. Nonetheless, he began receiving wild cards for ATP Challenger Tour events, the second tier tour run by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), in the second half of the year. His only ITF title of the year was in doubles, and he finished the season ranked No. 551.

His first matches on the pro tour he played in 2018 on the ITF Future Tour. In August 2018, he won his first double title with Giacomo Dambrosi and then broke into the top 1000 in the world rankings for the first time. For his debut on the ATP Challenger Tour he came in Como. Thanks to a wildcard he entered the individual field and lost his opening match against Andrej Martin in two sets. He also won his first match in 2018 in Ortisei in Val Gardena.

Sinner won his first Challenger title in February 2019 in Bergamo at the age of 17 years and 6 months, despite entering the tournament with no match wins at the Challenger level. He was again thanks to a wild card in the main draw and on the way to the final he beat Salvatore Caruso and Gianluigi Quinzi, two top 200 players. In the final, he prevailed against his compatriot Roberto Marcora in 72 minutes with 6-3, 6-1. He became the first player born in 2001 and the youngest Italian, who won a Challenger title in history. He improved by more than 200 places in the world rankings that time up to No. 324.
On March 3, 2019, a week later, Sinner also won his first ITF tournament in Trento. On March 31, 2019 Sinner won the ITF Tournament of Santa Margherita di Pula after a three-week break. As a result, Sinner reached on April 8, 2019 in 316th place a new top ranking.
After his first two ITF Futures titles, Sinner entered his first ATP tournament at the Hungarian Open in 2019, Sinner was given a wildcard for qualifying and, as a lucky loser, took part in his first ATP tournament, earning his first victory on Mate Valkusz, which scored another 26 points for Sinner's ranking to the top 300 (295).
The next week, he reached his second ATP Challenger final in Ostrava, finishing runner-up to Kamil Majchrzak.
During the second half of the season, Sinner played more often on the ATP Tour than the Challenger Tour. At the Internazionali BNL d'Italia in 2019 Sinner reached the final of the internal Italian elimination for a wildcard and still received one of the organizers for the main draw. He was 229 on the ranking, then Sinner won against Steve Johnson and thus for the first time against a top 100 players and it was his first ATP Masters victory . In the second round he lost the "NextGen" game against the world number 7 Stefanos Tsitsipas. Then he broke into the top 200 with his next ATP win at the Croatia Open Umag in July. The next month, he won a second ATP Challenger title in Lexington to become one of just eleven 17-year-olds to have won multiple Challenger titles. After losing in qualifying at Wimbledon, Sinner qualified for his first Grand Slam main draw at the US Open after he went through successfully the 3 qualification rounds. He lost his debut match to No. 24 Stan Wawrinka.
Sinner had a strong finish to the season. As a wild card at the European Open, he became the youngest player in five years to reach an ATP semifinal. Along the way, he knocked off top seed and world No. 13 Gael Monfils for his first career top 50 victory. This performance helped him break into the top 100 for the first time one week later. At the end of the season, Sinner qualified for the 2019 Next Gen ATP Finals as the Italian wild card and the lowest seed. He won in his round robin group with victories over Frances Tiafoe and Mikael Ymer, losing only to Ugo Humbert. After defeating Miomir Kecmanović in the semifinals, Sinner upset top seed and world No. 18 Alex de Minaur in straight sets to win the title. He played one last event in Italy the following week, winning a third Challenger title in Ortisei. Sinner finished the year at world No. 78, becoming the youngest player in the year-end top 80 since Rafael Nadal in 2003. He was also named ATP Newcomer of the Year.

Early in the year, Sinner made the second round of the 2020 Australian Open, recording his first Grand Slam main draw match win over home wild card Max Purcell before losing to Márton Fucsovics. As a wild card at the Rotterdam Open, he earned his first top 10 victory against world No. 10 David Goffin.
Following the ATP Tour shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sinner had a successful restart to the season. Although he lost his opening round match to Karen Khachanov at the US Open, he fared better in Europe. He reached the third round at the Rome Masters, highlighted by a victory over world No. 6 Stefanos Tsitsipas. He then progressed to become the youngest quarterfinalist at the French Open since Novak Djokovic in 2006, and the first to make the quarterfinals on debut since Rafael Nadal in 2005. During the tournament, he defeated Goffin again as well as US Open runner-up and world No. 7 Alexander Zverev before losing to Nadal.

He won his second career ATP title at the Great Ocean Road Open, and notably defeated No. 20 Karen Khachanov in the semifinals after saving a match point. He became the youngest to win back-to-back ATP titles since Rafael Nadal in 2005. His ten-match winning streak came to an end in the first round of the 2021 Australian Open, where he lost a tight five-set match to world No. 12 Denis Shapovalov.
Sinner's next big result was at the Miami Open, where he reached his first ATP Masters 1000 final. During the tournament, he defeated Khachanov again and later world No. 12 Roberto Bautista Agut in the semifinal. He finished runner-up to Hubert Hurkacz.

He beat Mackenzie McDonald in the final to win his third title and first ATP 500 title. Sinner was the first Italian finalist and champion in Washington's tournament history as well as the youngest ATP 500 and first teen champion since the category was created in 2009.

As the top seed at the 2024 ABN AMRO Open in Rotterdam, he recorded his 200th win
after Milos Raonic retired with a hip injury with Sinner leading by a set, becoming the first player born in the 2000s to accomplish this feat. After defeating Tallon Griekspoor in the semifinal and Alex de Minaur in the final (in 2 straight sets winning his 12th tournament), Sinner rose to a new career high of No. 3 in the world, becoming the highest-ranked Italian player in history. Sinner also became the first male player since Lleyton Hewitt, in 2001, to win his debut event as Grand Slam champion. At the 2024 BNP Paribas Open, with a victory over 25th seed Jan-Lennard Struff to reach the fourth round, he recorded his 17th consecutive match win, the longest ATP level streak for an Italian player in the Open Era. Sinner extended this to 19 consecutive wins (16–0 in 2024) by defeating Jiří Lehečka in the quarterfinal. Prior to his semifinal defeat to Carlos Alcaraz, Sinner had won 36 of his previous 38 matches, dating back to the 2023 China Open.

In March, Sinner played in Indian Wells where he defeated Thanasi Kokkinakis, Jan-Lennard Struff, Ben Shelton, and Jiří Lehečka (all in straight sets) to advance to the semifinals. In the semifinals, he faced Carlos Alcaraz and lost in three-sets. He also played in Indian Wells doubles with Lorenzo Sonego where they defeated Karen Khachanov and Andrey Rublev in the first round in straight sets. In the second round, they lost to Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos in straight sets. At the 2024 Miami Open, Sinner defeated Grigor Dimitrov in the final to win his second Master’s 1000 title. As a result, Sinner climbed to a career high (and Italian record) ranking of No. 2 in the world. Sinner improved his 2024 ATP match record to 22–1.

In May, Sinner withdrew from the Madrid Masters, at the quarterfinal stage, due to a hip injury. Three days later, Sinner withdrew from the Italian Open due to the same injury. Following Novak Djokovic's withdrawal from the 2024 French Open on June 4, Sinner became World No.1 for the first time on Monday June 10, 2024, following the conclusion of the tournament. He became the first Italian player (male or female) to hold the top position in the rankings. Sinner lost in the semifinal to Alcaraz in five sets.

At the 2024 Halle Open, Sinner defeated Tallon Grikespoor, Fábián Marozsán, Jan-Lennard Struff, Zhang Zhizhen and Hubert Hurkacz to win his debut tournament as World No. 1, becoming just the eighth male player to achieve this feat. Sinner improved his 2024 match record to 38–3.

Sinner is an aggressive baseliner and is one of the hardest hitters on the ATP tour. Sinner's groundstroke strength is his two-handed-backhand, which he hits with more topspin than any other player on the tour, registering an average of 1858 revolutions per minute on the shot along with the fifth-best average speed of 111.2 km/h (69.1 mph). His forehand is also a strength, owing to the fact he has a short compact takeback, meaning he rarely has to rush the shot, and the ability to rapidly open up his body, generating huge racket head speed and allowing him to hit the shot at over 160 km/h (100 mph) on occasion. He uses a modern, semi-western grip to generate large amounts of topspin, increasing net clearance and reducing the likelihood of unforced errors.

He also possesses a powerful first serve, which can reach up to speeds of 221 km/h (137.3 mph) although it has been criticised for its low average in percentage at 59.2%, and it can frequently dip below 55%. His coaching team has tried to combat this by alternating between the pinpoint (legs together) and platform (legs apart) stances, although as of late 2023 it seems they have settled on the pinpoint stance. Sinner is aiming to incorporate more variety into his game, hence he has been developing his net game and ability to serve-and-volley, as well as his slices and dropshots, to reduce the number of long rallies he has to play from the baseline.

Sinner has been compared to Roger Federer for his calm on-court demeanor and all-court movement. Federer himself has praised Sinner for the balance in his game, remarking, "What I like about him is that he almost has the same speed of shooting from the forehand and backhand". Sinner's groundstroke strength is his two-handed backhand, which he hits with more topspin than any other player on the ATP Tour, registering an average of 1858 revolutions per minute on the shot to go along with a fifth-best average speed of 111.2 kilometres per hour (69.1 mph). Former world No. 1 junior and tennis coach Claudio Pistolesi has praised Sinner's good lateral movement, which he attributes in part to Sinner's background in skiing. In this regard, Sinner has been compared to Novak Djokovic, who also credits a background in skiing for improving his tennis skills.

When Sinner began to prioritize tennis at age thirteen, he was coached by Riccardo Piatti, who had also been a part-time coach of Novak Djokovic and Milos Raonic. At the time, he also began working with Andrea Volpini and Massimo Sartori, the latter of whom was a longtime coach of Andreas Seppi. He continued to work with Piatti as his primary coach, and Volpini as his second coach. His team also consisted of physiotherapist Claudio Zimaglia and fitness coach Dalibor Sirola. In February of 2022, he decided to stop his long collaboration with Piatti and his team and began to train with Simone Vagnozzi, ex-coach of Marco Cecchinato. In July 2022, coach Darren Cahill officially joined Sinner's team. Instead of hiring a mental coach like other tennis players, Sinner has been using Formula Medicine, an Italian mental training program developed for Formula 1 drivers.
