The 2020 Sofia Open Champion lacked the experience needed to win final like this. On that context Piatti, the long time coach of Jannik, conveyed in a post match conference after the final, “Jannik is not yet that player everyone is talking about, he needs to grow and gain experience.”

With just 19 years of age, Jannik has a long way to go to shape himself into one of the world’s best. It will take few more years for the Italian to grow and gain experience and win more titles in the future.

Novak Djokovic’s former coach, Piatti further asserted, “It is undeniable that his perspectives are important, but as I have always said he needs two elements: time and work . So, let’s also give him time to make mistakes and understand”
