    Conclusion sentence one

    After everything seemed like a fast and even game at the beginning, the first set developed enormously. There aren’t many long rallies, that is, over nine shots, but both conceded break points against each other. Both are also close in terms of statistics, so only nuances decided who won the set. Sinner was a little braver towards the end and managed to get into the Serbian’s head. It remains very exciting to see whether the 22-year-old can carry this momentum into the second set or whether Djokovic responds immediately.

    And Sinner also scores his eighth point in a row. There are three match points for the Italian. The first serve flies just out of bounds, but Sinner can do a lot of damage even with the second serve. Djokovic then underestimates Sinner’s forehand, loses his balance and the ball remains on his side. This brings a total of nine points for the local hero, who effectively wins the first set without a tiebreak!

  • 9.54pm

  • 8.51pm

    Djokovic the first favorite

    On the other side awaits Novak Djokovic, the reigning champion and six-time ATP Finals champion. The Serbian will definitively close the year as number one in the world. If these are not the best conditions to be considered one of the favorites at this year’s finals. In his first match against Holger Rune, Djokovic found things quite difficult. The 36-year-old won the first tiebreak, the second went to the young Dane. Only in the third set did Djokovic manage to break away. The next difficult task awaits Jannik Sinner.

  • 8.42pm

    Local hero in impressive form

    On the one hand there is Jannik Sinner, the local hero. He will surely be the audience’s favorite this evening. The 22-year-old has yet to win the Nitto ATP Finals, but in 2019 he was crowned ATP Next-Gen Champion. Sinner also opened this year’s final with his match against Stefanos Tsitsipas. The Italian did not give his opponent the slightest chance and emerged victorious 6:4 and 6:4. Tsitsipas has been particularly powerless against improving the quality of service. Tsitsipas himself failed to finish his second match today. After three matches, the Greek had to give up against Holger Rune due to injury.

  • 8.32pm


    Good evening and welcome to the night session of the ATP Finals. The two winners of the first round meet in the Green Group. Jannik Sinner and Novak Djokovic are expected on the Central Court at 9.00 pm.
