"I can learn a lot of things from today" says humble Sinner after lifting Citi Open trophy

Jannik Sinner defeated Mackenzie McDonald in the final of the Citi Open in Washington 7-5 4-6 7-5 to lift his first ATP 500 trophy.

It was a very entertaining match between Sinner and McDonald in Washington and the crowd enjoyed that. Sinner did spoil the party in the end by defeatin the native player but the Italian deserved to win a match which he should have done earlier. Sinner allowed nerves to derail him several times in the match but each time he rose above that and ultiamtely won.

He admitted as much by saying:

"I think there is still much work to do, to be honest. A lot of experience to put in, working hard as we are doing now, and trying to play important matches and important moments of a match. Today I think I had a lot of them. I can learn many things [from] today."

By winning the trophy Sinner became the youngest ever winner to lift an ATP 500 trophy at only 19 years of age. On that he said:

"When you see somebody is the youngest or whatever, I don't put much weight on that. There are a lot of players who have done much, much better than me. It's not about who is the youngest or whatever. I just want to improve, work hard."

The Italian will hope to keep that momentum going for the two Masters 1000 events coming up as well as the US Open.
