World number four Jannik Sinner is the youngest player to reach the ATP Finals final without losing a match since Roger Federer did so at 23 years old back in 2004. The 21-year-old also became the first Italian to reach the Championship match and doing so in Turin cements his already out-of-control celebrated status on home soil as a clear future number one with glory ahead of him. Sinner beat Daniil Medvedev in a tight three-set encounter on Saturday but his most impressive win of the week was a first ever over Novak Djokovic, also seeing off the Serbin three sets via a vastly impressive third-set tiebreak on Tuesday.
World number one Novak Djokovic took a 3-2 lead in his storied head-to-head with Carlos Alcaraz on Saturday in a blistering straight-sets performance against the out-of-sorts Spaniard. Notably, the Serb is the first of the two to win back-to-back matches in their record, as well as in straight sets, to suggest that he has found a way to turn the screw against his greatest contemporary rival at this moment in time. Djokovic secured year-end number one status for a record eighth time this week after defeating Holger Rune on Sunday and he can set a new Men’s record of seven ATP Finals title with victory here, tied as he is currently on six with Roger Federer.
Novak Djokovic and Jannik Sinner looked like the two most in-form players coming into Turin and the tennis gods have seen fit to hand us a thrilling final on Sunday. As suggested in our preview of their group stage encounter, Sinner’s ever-improving game on court and his severe home advantage here in Italy made finally winning his first match over the Serb look possible but Djokovic is a different animal in a knock-out situation, let alone a final, and if there was to be a win apiece this week it seemed likely that Sinner take their round robin whilst Djokovic turns the screw at the key moment.
Djokovic’s 97-40 record in finals beggars belief in a myriad of ways but the 36-year-old is losing fewer and fewer each year, with just that one epic Wimbledon defeat in five sets to Carlos Alcaraz back in July keeping him from completing that elusive calendar Grand Slam. He has lost two of his eight ATP Finals Championship matches, to Andy Murray in 2016 and Alexander Zverev in 2018, and there is certainly more than a chance of Sinner finding a way through backed by 13,000 desperate Italians. However, snapping a 19-match winning streak against Sinner on Tuesday was probably the defining moment of the week for Djokovic’s likelier success here. The Serb’s vengeful streak is nastier than any tennis player before him and his thirst for records will see him throw every ounce of himself at this – one of Roger Federer’s last thrones to overthrow.
Three sets seem likelier than two but it is hard to see Djokovic, who looked dangerously impatient against Alcaraz on Saturday, losing to the same player twice in a week. Back the world number one to do what he does best.
