If ever you needed proof that a successful junior career is not a necessity for success on the professional tour, look no further than Jannik Sinner.

The young prospect from Innichen, Italy, was never the most prolific at junior level. Sinner started playing in ITF juniors tournaments only in 2016.

His career-high ranking as a junior was 133. He also never took part in a single junior Grand Slam. But barely two years after his junior career started, he turned pro.

Now he’s a player who’s already breached the Top 10 of the ATP rankings. What’s more, he is seen as one of the most promising players in the world right now.

The risk he took as a junior might not have paid off for any ordinary player. Then again, Sinner is no ordinary tennis player.

He won his first ATP Challenger title aged 17 in 2019, despite having no prior wins at that level. In doing so, he became the first player born in 2001 to reach a Challenger final.

The title only served to speed up his already meteoric rise. By the second half of the year, he was playing in more ATP tour matches than he did in Challenger events.

Given his status as one of the sport’s most promising players, it is no surprise that he has mixed it up among the best of the best.

Thus, here we are going to look at his rivalries and his head-to-head record against a number of notable players on the tour.
