He said, “He needs to keep going because he’s definitely on the right path. I’m not the only one who is saying he can win slams & be No. 1 in the world. I would be very surprised if that doesn’t happen. I don’t know if it’s next year or the year to come. He’s 22. He has a lot of time ahead of him. Jannik, the Italian tennis is in good hands. I think Jannik is someone that is very professional, that loves his country. He does all the right things with his people.”

Novak Djokovic showered his praise on the Italian crowd:

Novak Djokovic was left shocked by the atmosphere of the Italian state of Turin, the very same place that hosted the recently played ATP Finals. Djokovic talked about how iconic and special the fans made it at the stands the whole tournament. Djokovic added that Sinner’s performance at the competition was hugely boosted by the support he received from the local supporters.

He also talked about how the surroundings and the atmosphere made Sinner the absolute favorite for the silverware marking this year’s crowd as different from when he was here the last time. He said, “I played here already two years, but this year was something different. I think it’s credit to Jannik, as well, of course being Italian & being one of the favorites to win the title.”
