With his incredible Australian Open success, the invites have flooded in for Jannik Sinner both in terms of brand opportunities and also in this case the prestigious Sanremo Music Festival. But he declined the invite to instead make his tennis return and win in Rotterdam.
Andrea Petkovic and Rennae Stubbs praised Sinner for the mindset that he has of putting his job first and said that perhaps Matteo Berrettini and Emma Raducanu need to learn a thing or two from his example with both being criticised in the past for following their off-court pursuits in the glare of not playing well at times on court.
"It’s a big honor to be invited to the Sanremo Music Festival. As anybody, not just as an artist. And Jannik actually didn’t take the invitation. He refused to come because he had to train to go to Rotterdam and it was a controversy because everyone was like, 'Oh he’s not honoring the invitation,'" said Petkovic.
"And I would have gone, I would’ve been in Sanremo so maybe that’s why I never won Majors. At the same time, I really respect it and then seeing him win Rotterdam was like, yeah he did the right thing," Petkovic added.
"That’s the one thing that I would have to say against Matteo Berrettini for example. Look, we call a spade a spade on this podcast and I love Matteo, he’s a great guy. He’s very good looking, all the stuff that we all love about him. And he’s an amazing tennis player and yes, he’s had terrible injuries over the last couple of years but when he was at his peak, when he was doing really well, he was going to the Met Gala, he was doing photoshoots," said Stubbs.
"And I’m fine with that because Jannik’s got his Gucci stuff and Matteo has his Boss stuff but that’s maybe where you have to maybe fault him a little bit. I know a lot of people have given Emma Raducanu sh*t for that. That’s where it’s important to have people around you that are advising you to say what is your priority," Stubbs added.
