Novak Djokovic defeated local Jannik Sinner 6-3, 6-3 and became champion of the ATP Finals in Torino. At 36 years old, the Serbian continues to show that he is a step above the new generation and returned kindness to the Italian, who had beaten him in the group stage. The No. 1 in the ranking, who won seven of the 13 competitions in which he participated during the season, celebrated in a competition in which he had to endure the hostility of the public, who booed him against Holger Rune when he broke two rackets, and in the two matches against Sinner. This time, unlike the first clash, he at least didn’t respond with gestures.
Of course, when he confirmed his victory, after greeting his rival and blowing kisses towards the location of his wife, his children and his work team led by Goran Ivanisevic, he let out his anger and let out a powerful shout (“Let’s go!” ) facing the stands, and accompanying the attitude with histrionics.
Then, he greeted the members of the delegation one by one and focused on his energy plant, his wife Jelena Ristic and his children Tara and Stefan. They arrived in the Italian peninsula with the tournament started and witnessed Novak’s victorious sprint towards his seventh victory in the Masters, thus surpassing Roger Federer in the title table in the tournament that closes the year.
Djokovic kissed them, hugged them and then had a second part of complicity with them: it was when before the awards ceremony he approached them to talk. He is an attentive father despite his professional responsibilities that take him to travel the world: in the ESPN broadcast, for example, they highlighted that in recent days he was worried about the children’s absences in school. school.
* Djokovic’s first words after lifting the trophy in the Masters Tournament

My children give me more strength,” he said after the victory against Sinner, the top winner of Grand Slam tournaments with 24 (Rafael Nadal comes behind with 22).
The Serbian stressed that this was “one of the best seasons of my career.” And he once again thanked his loved ones and his team because “they go through good moments and bad moments during the days with me, they think all day how they can help me. “I’m proud of them.”
In closing, diplomatic, he dedicated a few words to those who whistled at him throughout the week: “I understand that Sinner was the local credit, but the support there is in Italy for this sport is truly incredible.”
