Sinner has reduced the mobile uses, and you?

Today it is almost a duty to talk about Sinner, who has become the world number one in tennis.

Many things have been said about him, but I would like to focus on an apparently small change that he has declared to have made: “I use my phone less.”

In recent days, I have written about the negative change this had on a population in the Amazon. Instead, now we become aware that Sinner’s success, composed of a thousand details, is also due to this small change.

So let’s try to reflect on the influence of the smartphone in our daily lives; we certainly don’t need to aspire to be a champion to control its use and its relative frequency.

Let’s try to ask ourselves:

  • How much time do I spend using it each day?
  • What are the reasons I use it?
  • Do I use it for work or as a pastime?
  • What could I do instead of consulting the smartphone?
  • How long has it been since I last read a book?
  • When I am with others, do I keep consulting it?
  • What could I do instead of its frequent use?

Unbelievable Sinner: “Now I’m getting back to work”

A friend just sent me this text that he sent to his players and players.

Guys print it out on yourselves. This one just made history and already talks about how he can coach better….
This is the epitome of the way things should be done, regardless of whether you’re a tennis player or an entrepreneur.

In fact, Sinner responded just that way:

Now what? So much will change. “But what? I’m still the same guy I was the day before yesterday. The moment is beautiful, but now we’re going to calm down and get back on track.”

In what way? “Simple: there’s a lot of work to be done, and I’m looking forward to it because I like it. We have accomplished a beautiful thing, which lets us know that I am doing the right things. So the important thing is to live peacefully with my team and work because the opponents now know me, it showed in Melbourne, and so I have to improve a lot.”

Is Sinner already a champions?

In January 2022, Jannik Sinner, the young Italian tennis player, underwent significant progress in his tennis career. Already at a relatively young age, he had demonstrated extraordinary talent and had gained international recognition for his skills and potential.

At that time, Sinner had won several ATP tournaments and had secured a place among the top 10 players in the ATP rankings. However, describing him as a ‘tennis champion’ might require a bit more time and notable victories in Grand Slam tournaments such as Wimbledon, the US Open, the Australian Open, or Roland Garros.

The shift from a talented tennis player to a bona fide champion necessitates consistency, outstanding performances in major tournaments, and continual ascension in the world rankings. While Sinner has showcased immense potential and achieved significant success on the ATP circuit, the designation of ‘tennis champion’ often coincides with a player’s attainment of high-level milestones and a sustained record of excellence across various conditions and tournaments.

Sinner undeniably possesses the talent and potential to ascend to the level of a tennis champion, but as of January 2022, he was still regarded as an up-and-coming young tennis player with promising prospects for the trajectory of his sports career.

“Mancini gives Sinner a jersey”

“Mancini gives Sinner a jersey” was written on the banners in Turin, demonstrating not only the technical recognition of this young tennis player, but also his ability to play matches at an absolute level in an intelligent and combative manner.

Qualities these last two that the Italian national team lacked in its useful two matches. At the moment, the success at the European soccer championship last summer can be interpreted, in my opinion, as the victory of an outsider team that managed to express itself at its highest level, just as happened in the past to teams like Greece and Denmark. Deserved success of course, as well as the skills of the players certainly cannot have melted away in these months.

The question concerns the next path: is it possible to repeat that kind of performance? The answer is not obvious, because we know that maintaining a high standard of continued success over time is not only not obvious but not at all easy.

At the moment, the Italian team has not passed the test, the collective team has been insufficient to the task and the individuals have not been able to represent a decisive added value.

We do not know what the future will be like, but certainly a different and more specific psychological preparation must be carried out, rather than the simple and obvious “we play for fun, we have the skills to move forward” and so on.
