At the ATP Finals in Turin Jannik Sinner defeated the Serbian Novak Djokovic, number 1 in the world ranking, in three sets at the end of a very balanced match that lasted over three hours. The final score was 7-5, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (2). However, the match against the Danish Holger Rune next Thursday will be decisive for the Italian talent to advance to the semi-finals.

There is no more beautiful place to beat the world number one. It was a bit the same story with Medvedev, there were moments of tension but I won with you, thanks to everyone“. Jannik Sinner is in seventh heaven thanking the public at the PalaAlpitour in Turin after beating Novak Djokovic for the first time in his career in the second match of the ATP Finals. “It was a very tactical match, even if there weren’t such long rallies – explained the 22-year-old from South Tyrol – I made some mistakes in the second set tie-break and tried to play the important points better in the third. It’s been a roller coaster and today I managed to go higher than him”
