Jannik Sinner first Gen Z slam winner

Question

Jannik Sinner is an Italian professional tennis player. He is current the youngest tennis player in the top 10 based on Tennis Abstract's Elo rankings

As part of The Tennis Abstract Podcast's 100th episode it was asked "Who will be the first man born in the 2000s to win a Slam?". Sinner was picked out as being most likely to win. To operationalise this, we ask what his chances are.

Will Jannik Sinner be the first man born in the 2000s to win a slam?

Resolves positive if Jannik Sinner is the first male player born after the millennium to win a tennis Grand Slam. (One of Australian Open, Rolland Garros, Wimbledon, US Open).

Resolves negative if a player other than Jannik Sinner born after the millennium wins a tennis Grand Slam before Sinner.

Resolution will be by credible media reports.

This question closes retroactively day before the beginning of the tournament which triggers resolution.
