ATP Finals Turin, “historic” meeting between Sinner and Panatta


By John

A meeting between the past and present (and future) of Italian tennis. The day after knocking out the number 1 ranked Novak Djokovic at the ATP Finals in Turin, Jannik Sinner met Adriano Panatta in the lounge of Intesa Sanpaolo, host partner of the end-of-year Masters which is being held on the PalaAlpitour fast track. A “historic” photo between two very champions. Adriano Panatta in 1976, his best year as a player, reached fourth position in the world ranking, after winning the Rome Internationals, the French Open in Paris and the Davis Cup that year. And today Sinner is firmly sitting in seat number 4 in the ATP rankings. Panatta, just yesterday, after Sinner’s victory against Djokovic, declared that the 22-year-old from South Tyrol has all it takes to become number one.
