Jannik Sinner is proof that a successful junior career is not a necessity for success on the professional tour.
The young prospect from Innichen, Italy, was never the most prolific at junior level. He 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.
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.
2020 was even better for him, despite the pandemic wreaking havoc with the global tennis schedule. He reached the French Open quarterfinals and also won his maiden ATP title.
In the Sofia Open final, he beat Vasek Pospisil in a three-set match to take home the title. More titles would soon follow in 2021 – 4 in singles and one in doubles.
As such, there is plenty of interest in his personal life – including his finances. Here we take a look at this salary, net worth and the like.
The net worth of Sinner is around $1 million. This includes over $4 million in prize money itself.

Despite his career being in its early days, Sinner has plenty of endorsements. He was sponsored by Head for both rackets and apparel until 2019.
That was the year he inked a deal with Nike for his apparel, although Head are still his racket sponsors.
In 2020, he signed with Rolex as one of their brand ambassadors. Besides these brands, he also advertises for Italian brands Lavazza, Parmigiano Reggiano, Technogym, and Alfa Romeo.
As of now, Sinner does not own neither is he associated with any foundations. However, in 2020, he contributed a significant sum of money to aid in with medical emergencies in Bergamo, Italy.
It is not known if Sinner owns any major or notable assets.
