Boris Becker, a tennis legend who graced the Italian Sports Festival in Trento from October 12 to 15, not only shared insights about his own remarkable journey in the world of tennis, as both player and coach, but also delved into the current state of affairs in the ATP circuit.

In the heart of Italy, the former world number one couldn’t resist discussing the state of Italian tennis. With enthusiasm, he highlighted the talents that Italy has brought to the forefront: “Today Italy has very good players like Jannik Sinner, Matteo Berrettini, and Lorenzo Sonego.” Becker’s admiration for Jannik Sinner was palpable. He praised the young Italian tennis sensation, saying, “I like Jannik a lot; he has a nice personality, he is a good player and can win several Grand Slam titles.”

Becker acknowledged the presence of formidable competitors like Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic but remained optimistic about Sinner’s prospects, emphasizing his youth and potential to become one of the best in the years to come. He left tennis enthusiasts with a hopeful message: “The future will hold many exciting moments for fans because there are many young talents who will show good things soon.” Becker, at 55 years of age, a tennis virtuoso who clinched two Slams before turning 19, certainly saw a bright future for the 22-year-old ATP Masters 1000 winner from Toronto.

Switching gears, Becker delved into his coaching role with Novak Djokovic. He reminisced about their collaboration, which began in December 2013 and concluded at the end of the 2016 season. Becker emphasized the importance of honesty in their working relationship, stating, “I just told him that the most important thing was honesty, that I would tell him when he played badly or even very badly, otherwise he would never improve.” He also pledged to ensure that Djokovic returned from every final with a trophy.

The camaraderie between the two was evident as Becker fondly remarked, “For two years, we got along very well, for me he is a younger brother.” As Djokovic prepared for his return to the court at the Paris Rolex Masters, followed by the ATP Finals in Turin and the Davis Cup Finals in Malaga, it was clear that the bonds forged between these tennis luminaries extended beyond the sport itself.
