Turin Masters 2023: Sinner pays Djokovic, Alcaraz with his back to the wall, the program

Jannik Sinner continues to progress and this Tuesday evening, the Italian delivered an XXL performance against Novak Djokovic. After 3h08 of play and a spectacular score 7-5, 6-7 (5/7), 7-6 (7/2), the world number 4, galvanized by his audience in Turin, puts an end to the series of 19 Djoker’s consecutive victories and is getting closer to the semi-finals. Questioned at a press conference, “Nole” talks about the Italian’s progress. “The last time we played each other was in the Wimbledon semi-finals. I won in three sets, but the match was close. It all came down to a few points. But he was already playing very good at that moment. This time, he perhaps served better. The big difference is that he went for the important points, he was more courageous. For my part, I was not aggressive , not decisive enough. I let him take control of the rallies. At 5 all in the third set, 15-30, there was a rally and I should have entered the court. I didn’t do it , he does. That’s why he deserves his victory.” The Serbian will now have to win against the Pole Hubert Hurkacz (9th), who replaces Stefanos Tsitsipas who was injured and withdrew, to qualify for the semi-finals.

On the program for the day, world number 2 Carlos Alcaraz has his back to the wall against Andrey Rublev.
