Jannik Sinner reached the final of the ATP Finals for the first time in his tennis career on Saturday. The number four in the world was too strong for Daniil Medvedev in three sets in Turin.
Sinner won the first set, after which he had to leave the second set in a tiebreak to the global number three. In the third set he still took the win: 6-3, 6-7 (4) and 6-1.
It is the first time for the 22-year-old Sinner to participate in the ATP Finals. Medvedev, who is four years older, attended the prestigious end-of-year tournament for the fifth time, which he won in 2020.
In any case, Sinner will meet a major opponent in the final. Later on Sunday, world number one Novak Djokovic and world number two Carlos Alcaraz will face each other in the other semi-final.
The match between Djokovic and Alcaraz is a repeat of this year’s Wimbledon final. That was won by Alcaraz. The experienced Serbian has already won the ATP Finals six times, including last year.
