Rennae Stubbs says Jannik Sinner is "the same version of Novak Djokovic" and has "more upside" than Carlos Alcaraz. Sinner is currently on a 12 match unbeaten run, winning the Australian Open before triumphing at the Rotterdam Open.
Speaking on the Racquet’s Rennae Stubbs Tennis Podcast, the former doubles World No. 1 believes the Italian has no ceiling with his potential.
"I think that Sinner has more upside [than Alcaraz]. I think he can get better at hitting the dropshot, which he is doing," Stubbs explained.
"You think about, ‘Where he is attackable? Where do you win a point against him?’ You can’t. He is like the same version of Novak Djokovic."
Technical tweaks
Stubbs then went into detail why Sinner has seen his form turn around tremendously. “He is implementing that forehand dropshot which is great, even won him a couple of really big points against Alex de Minaur [in Rotterdam], who is arguably the best mover in tennis.
"He hit that a couple of times against him on some big points, couple of break points.
“I think his net game is improving experientially. Darren [Cahill] turned a huge influence in that department. So, I think he is moving forward his dropshots and his slice backhand. That’s a work in progress."
Sinner will be next in action when he heads to Indian Wells for the start of the Sunshine Double.
