Nitto ATP Finals—Turin, Italy
Tuesday’s action at the ATP Finals in Turin, Italy featured local hero Jannik Sinner defeating world No. 1 Novak Djokovic, 7-5, 6-7(5), 7-6(2).
Needing three hours and nine minutes to seal his victory, Sinner picked up first-ever win against Djokovic in four encounters.
The 22-year-old struck 15 aces, won 79 percent of his first serve points and broke serve on two occasions.
Sinner will next face Holger Rune on Thursday.
Djokovic, who has been sensational all season, will play Hubert Hurkacz on Thursday.
Hurkacz, an alternate at the event, will take the place of Greek star Stefanos Tsitsipas.
Tsitsipas was forced to withdraw with a back injury against No. 8 seed Rune after only three games.
Rune will now face Sinner on Thursday for a chance of making the semifinals.
