It is the first to succeed at just 18 years: a predestined triumph. Sinner, number 95 of the ATP classification, in the race with a wild card, passed a well-established tennis player in the final, the twenty year old Australian Alex de Minaur, number 18, already winner of three tournaments in the circuit. In front of an audience in delirium, Sinner has established himself for three sets to zero with a score of 4-2 4-1 4-2 (the "short" sets that characterize the tournament dedicated to tomorrow's champions). The South Tyrolean, in great shape, has almost nothing wrong, canceling 9 rival break balls: succeeds Chung and Tsitsipas and is the first Italian to raise the trophy dedicated to young people.
Thus Sinner closes a fabulous year, which saw it enter the top 100 players in the world (in January it was out of the first 500), and win a match in a Masters 1000, as well as two challenger titles. Now this statement that projects it onto the world stage: in 2020 it will have to confirm progress.
"I have no words, I just tried to hit the ball because I had a great player in front of me. I am very satisfied, I played my best tennis. It was a sensational week and an incredible final. It was very important to have a good start, I had some problems in the first service shifts but then I improved. Now I enjoy the moment and this victory", Are the words reported by Sky.
"I have to congratulate De Minaur, who played great the whole tournament and will make a great Davis Cup. I must also thank the team and the public, which was great all week. Thanks to the organization, without the wild card I wouldn't be here. Me in the Davis Cup? I don't think I'll go, I have a lot of work to do and I'm young. I played a lot this year and it's right to concentrate on training. "
