Novak Djokovic will be looking to put things right as a matter of priority after losing to Jannik Sinner at the ATP Finals on Tuesday night. The Serb will go up against Hubert Hurkacz in his final group stage match later today as he aims to book his place in the semi-finals in Turin.
Djokovic’s defeat at the hands of Sinner brought an end to his impressive 19-match winning streak, with the Italian hopeful edging a three-set thriller to claim a huge win and delight the home crowd. It marked a disappointing blow for Djokovic but he was in fine spirits after the match as he insisted that he was proud of his overall performance despite falling just short.
“It’s normal to lose some of the matches like this, but I have to be content with the fight, the fighting spirit,” he said.
“I managed to make a comeback from a set down, a break down in the third set, playing in really challenging and difficult conditions on the court today. I’m proud of the fight that I put in. It just wasn’t enough for the win.”
Sinner, meanwhile, will have the opportunity to extend his 100 per cent record at this year’s ATP Finals when he faces Holger Rune this evening. He has failed to beat the Dane in either of their previous two meetings but will be hoping to captalise on his winning momentum to get the job done at the third time of asking.
