Djokovic, Sinner meet Carlos Sainz in Monte-Carlo


Sporting superstars were easy to spot Wednesday at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters, where Formula 1 driver Carlos Sainz enjoyed the action and met the top two seeds: Novak Djokovic and Jannik Sinner.

The Spanish driver caught up with the 40-time ATP Masters 1000 champion Djokovic and posed for a picture with the Serbian.

“What’s up? Did you get the chance to play a little bit of tennis?” Djokovic asked.

“My backhand is terrible. My drive is okay. My volley sucks,” Sainz said with a smile.

Sainz also sat courtside to watch Sinner kickstart his title quest in the Principality and later met the Italian after the match.

“I was here watching you! Right behind you. Pushing for you,” Sainz said to Sinner, who then mentioned his love for Formula 1.

Sainz is not the only Formula 1 driver to soak in the ATP Masters 1000 tournament so far this week. On Tuesday, George Russell was in attendance for Djokovic’s opening match.
