Welcome to Popular Wiki of the Day, spotlighting Wikipedia's most visited pages, giving you a peek into what the world is curious about today.

With 165,276 views on Wednesday, 3 July 2024 our article of the day is Jannik Sinner.

Jannik Sinner (born 16 August 2001) is an Italian professional tennis player. He is currently ranked as the world No. 1 in singles by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), making him the highest-ranked Italian singles player in history.

Sinner has won 14 singles titles on the ATP Tour, including a Grand Slam title at the 2024 Australian Open and two Masters 1000 titles.

At the end of the 2023 season, Sinner was runner-up at the ATP Finals and led Italy to the Davis Cup crown, their first since 1976. Sinner also has a career-high ranking of world No. 124 in doubles, achieved in September 2021, and has won one ATP Tour title in doubles.

Sinner grew up in northern Italy in the predominantly German-speaking region of South Tyrol. After being a competitive skier between the ages of 8–12, Sinner switched to focus exclusively on tennis at age 13, and moved to Bordighera on the Italian Riviera to train with veteran coach Riccardo Piatti. Despite limited success as a junior, Sinner began playing in professional men's events aged 16, and became one of the few players to win multiple ATP Challenger Tour titles at age 17. In 2019, he broke into the top 100, winning the Next Generation ATP Finals and the ATP Newcomer of the Year award. In 2021, he became the youngest ATP 500 champion at the 2021 Citi Open, and became the first player born in the 2000s to enter the top 10 in rankings. Sinner won his first Masters 1000 title at the 2023 Canadian Open and finished the season by reaching the final of the ATP Finals and contributed to Italy lifting the Davis Cup. At the 2024 Australian Open, Sinner defeated world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the semifinals to reach his first major final. He then defeated Daniil Medvedev in a five-set final, coming back from two sets down to win his first major title.
