Tennis Superstar Jannik Sinner has Arrived to Panini Instant

June 13, 2024

One of the brightest faces in tennis belongs to Italy’s Jannik Sinner. The 22-year-old star has made his presence felt on the ATP Tour by being one of the hardest hitters and most mobile competitors, all while maintaining a calm demeanor and big grin. 

Sinner’s professional career started at 14 and by 17, he was one of the few players to win multiple ATP Challenger Tour titles. In 2019, he broke into the top 100, winning the Next Generation ATP Finals and the ATP Newcomer of the Year award. In 2023, he won his first Masters 1000 title at the Canadian Open.

He opened 2024 by winning the Australian Open, his first major title. That made him the first Italian player, male or female, to win the Australian Open singles title and just the third man to win a major — the first in 48 years.

His other tournament wins this year include the ATP Rotterdam Open (February) and Miami Open (March). At the former, he picked up his 200th career victory in the quarterfinal round, becoming the first 2000s-born player to accomplish the feat. Winning the Miami Open gave him his second Master’s 1000 title. Between those two tournaments, he set a record for Italian players by winning 19 consecutive matches after a triumph in the quarterfinals of the 2024 BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells.

His play at Roland Garros was enough to bump him up to No. 1 in the ATP rankings, making him the first Italian to ever accomplish that.

The announcement of Sinner being named atop of the ATP rankings was accompanied by the announcement of his multi-year deal with Panini that covers collectible trading cards, autographed memorabilia and game gear, books, as well as digital collections.

The first release under his new agreement is an exclusive Panini Instant card that commemorates the historic occasion. You can pick up that first card today!

Panini will launch a series of trading card collections entirely dedicated to Sinner, containing memorabilia and limited-edition cards that will be available worldwide through the company’s online e-commerce network and at dedicated stores.

Be on the lookout for additional Sinner releases throughout the remainder of 2024 and over years to come.
