Both tennis players reached the finals after convincing victories in the semi-finals, Jannik Sinner was better than Russian Danilo Medvedev 2:1 in sets, and Novak Djokovic outplayed Carlos Alcaraz in less than an hour and a half and defeated him 6:3.

6:2. Siner and Djokovic already met this week in Turin in the "Green Group", where Sinner won 2:1 in sets. Now Djokovic will have a chance for a rematch, and it is well known in the tennis world how difficult it is to beat one player twice in a short period of time, so the local player will have a difficult task and a real test of maturity.

There is no doubt that Sinner will be supported by the stands of the "Pala Alpitur" hall, but it will only be more motivation for the Serbian tennis player who will play in the final of the Final Masters for the ninth time and in tomorrow's duel will look for the seventh title in his career at these tournaments.

On the other hand, for the young Italian, this is the match of his career so far, since he has never been in such a similar situation in his life.

This is Sinner's first big challenge in his career

Jannnik Sinner was born on August 16, 2001.

He is currently the fourth tennis player in the world according to the ATP ranking, making him the best-ranked Italian tennis player in history. Siner has won ten ATP Tour singles titles, including the Masters 1000 title at the 2023 Canadian Open, as well as one doubles title.
