Novak Djokovic clinched an unprecedented seventh ATP Finals title on Sunday, prevailing over local favorite Jannik Sinner with a score of 6-3, 6-3 in Turin.
Securing this victory propels the world number one, Djokovic, past retired tennis legend Roger Federer in triumphs at the year-end championship, thwarting Italian Sinner’s hopes of a home-soil triumph.
Djokovic’s triumph at the Finals concludes a remarkable year, during which he claimed three Grand Slam titles, tallying his total to an all-time high of 24, and secured a 40th Masters 1000 title.
This season has been nothing short of extraordinary for Djokovic, who also reached the Wimbledon final, culminating in another historic achievement by comfortably defeating two of the sport’s most promising young players on his way to the title.
Despite Sinner’s aspirations to become the first Italian to seize a Finals crown and his impressive group stage victory over Djokovic, the 22-year-old, akin to Carlos Alcaraz in the semi-final, found Djokovic too formidable to handle. Djokovic exhibited exceptional form precisely when needed, demonstrating his unwavering determination throughout the tournament.
