Despite his second win in the second group match, Sinner is yet to secure a place in the semi-finals. In his final match, on Thursday, the 22-year-old will face Holger Röhn, who recorded a win for his team.
“It was a very good match, at a very high level from both of them. I’m very happy. This was one of my greatest victories. It was a win over the world number one,” said Sinner, who rated the win over the world number one highly. He won 24 Grand Slam tournaments.”
Sinner explained that he won the match because, unlike before, he was “more self-confident in decisive moments, in decisive rallies.”
Both Sinner and Djokovic scored 109 points in the match that lasted more than three hours. In the third set tiebreak, Sinner was the dominant man. He quickly moved to 5-0 and cruised to victory supported by raucous spectators at Pala Alpitour.
