The Italian tennis player Jannik Sinner is the first finalist of the Final Masters in Turin. He defeated Danilo Medvedev 6-3, 6-7 (4), 6-1, and now he awaits his opponent in the trophy match. Currently ranked fourth in the world, Sinner has demonstrated that he is in good form, being the only player to have won every match in the tournament so far.

He engaged in another intense duel against the Russian. The only break in the entire match occurred in the fourth game of the first set when the Italian took away his opponent's serve, despite the Muscovite having a 40-0 advantage.

Sinner then scored five points, establishing an advantage that he maintained without much difficulty until the end of the opening set. In the second set, Medvedev had the sole break chance in the eighth game, but the Russian failed to capitalize on it.

Both players held their serves until the end, leading to a tie-break to determine the winner of this part of the game. Medvedev performed significantly better in the tie-break, playing more aggressively and conceding only three points to his opponent.

He managed to take the match to the deciding set, disappointing a large part of the audience in the "Pala Alpitur" hall. After the tie-break, the third-ranked player in the world went to the dressing room to receive assistance from a physiotherapist.

He returned to the field but was not in the right rhythm. He played a challenging second game, making errors from both the forehand and backhand, and topped it off with a double service fault that resulted in a break for the player from San Candido.

Sinner is waiting for the better of the duel between Djokovic and Alcaraz in the final

From that point on, the Russian's game fell apart, and the Italian secured another break to win the third set convincingly with a score of 6-1.

The entire tennis spectacle lasted two hours and 25 minutes. In the final, Sinner will face the winner of the duel between the two top-ranked players in the world, Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz, who will meet this Saturday at 9 p.m.

Sinner has played four matches against Djokovic, losing three and winning one. It's worth noting that he defeated Djokovic in the group stage of the Final Masters. He has a better record against the Spaniard, having played seven times and leading 4-3, with victories in their last two matches at the Masters in Miami and Beijing.
