The Italian will play his first match at the ATP Finals in Turin tomorrow
There are now just over 24 hours left and then the ATP Finals in Turin will officially begin. In Italy and beyond there is great anticipation for Jannik Sinner’s debut in the tournament, which will start tomorrow afternoon at 2.30 pm local time and will face the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas.
The Greek talent had some problems in the last training session but he should be in the match and Sinner will have a rather tough match. Jannik spoke to the ATP media on the eve of this important event, revealing his real feelings.
“I’m happy to be here and above all happy that we’re playing in Turin, I’m playing at home. I hope that the public factor can be positive for me and I can manage the situation with the right mentality. I feel like I have a bit of pressure on me but for for me it’s a very positive sign.
I like playing under pressure, I like playing tiebreaks and important points and in the end you can see who has a certain type of game. I like playing difficult games with important points, these are what help you to win. Obviously the goal is to win but above all to enrich my personal wealth of experience in view of the next challenges.”
Jannik Sinner shares real feelings on the ATP Finals eve
Sinner is part of the green group and it is not simple, a draw that sees him opposed to three opponents with whom he is behind in the previous ones.
He is 2-5 against the Greek Tsitsipas with whom he will debut tomorrow while he has never won against Holger Rune and Novak Djokovic. Also for this reason it won’t be easy at all for the Italian who then continued: “Two years ago I made my debut as a reserve but I still felt wonderful sensations.
There was a great bond with the fans and I hope that this time too it will be more or less like then. I will have the audience with me in the good moments and they will try to push me in the difficult ones. I want to transform all this into positive energy.” A balance of 57 wins and 14 defeats in 2023 and Sinner doesn’t want to stop yet: “I played fewer tournaments, but more challenges than last season, I think the balance is positive. This is an excellent sign and I hope that in Turin I can also try to get to the end.”
