Novak Djokovic was one of the protagonists of the Ryder Cup All Stars (the golf event which will be played in Rome by Team Europe and Team World) together with Carlos Sainz, Formula 1 driver for Steam Ferrari. In the event that took place in Rome, Nole, who won six times at the Internazionali BNL ATP Masters 1000 in the Italian capital, spoke in an interview with the Italian television broadcaster Rai.
The 24-time Slam champion also talked about tennis and analyzed his two young rivals on the circuit: Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz.
Djokovic: "Alcaraz and Sinner are the future of tennis"
Nole analyzed: "Jannik and Alcaraz will be the future of tennis.
Sinner plays very well, he is one of the most important players in tennis at the moment. He is a player who works a lot and this, with the mentality he has, will take him far. He will be one of the most difficult players to beat in Turin." The Serbian will return to Turin: he was the second player, after Alcaraz, to qualify for this edition of the Nitto ATP Finals.
For the 7 times Wimbledon winner, it's about defending the title he won last year by beating Casper Ruud in the final.
The Serbian champion said: "I am motivated to do well in Turin, I hope to offer a good level of tennis." Nole, before the ATP Finals, will only play the ATP Masters 1000 in Paris-Bercy and will avoid the Chinese trip of the men's circuit.
In addition to the two Slam winners this year, Daniil Medvedev also qualified in Turin and is also returning to Turin. Of these three, the fight for the ATP Finals is still open. Following the Race ranking, Sinner is certainly one of the candidates to get there and challenge tennis number one to win the title, the first at home.
Eyes on Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev: the former is in difficulty both from a physical and results point of view; the second is looking for the essential points for qualification, especially now that he is in excellent physical condition.
