Sinner is already in Indian Wells and surprisingly trains with the tournament director


The first 1000 tournament of the 2024 men's tennis season will take place in Indian Wells from 6 to 17 March. Jannik Sinner wants to extend his winning streak – so far he has made it twelve out of twelve, obtaining successes at the Australian Open and Rotterdam – and has the chance to overtake Carlos Alcaraz and become number 2. Novak Djokovic wants to make up for it and will try to win in California to the sixth time. The Serbian, who arrived with Nadal, is training, as is the Italian tennis player who has already taken to the court and did so against an exceptional partner: the tournament director, namely Tommy Haas , former world number 2.

In recent days, Sinner let the fans who follow him on social media know that he was about to leave for the United States, where he will play the 1000 in Indian Wells and Miami in March. Two tournaments he has in his sights. In California last year he played in the semi-finals, in Florida he has already played two finals. Now his status is different and he is one of the men to beat.


At Indian Wells he will be the number three seed and the draw will be intriguing, because he could still end up on the side of Djokovic, who he has defeated three times in the last four matches. In the good Californian retreat Jannik wants the season's hat trick and he is already there to do things properly. He will easily dispose of the time zone and will have the opportunity to take measurements of the surface and the balls.

He trained immediately on the central court and did so, in an anomalous and surprising way, with the tournament director, Tommy Haas, who over a long period (late '90s, early '10s) was a protagonist of the circuit , reaching second position in the ATP rankings , he has four Slam semi-finals and fifteen tournaments won to his credit.

An unprecedented training session, it's true that Haas is young, he's 45 years old, but it's rare to see a tournament director (that of Indian Wells belongs to Larry Ellison ) take the field with one of the favourites. And Haas, from the video posted by the official account of the tournament, still shows that he can keep up with the pace of one of the strongest in the world.
