Italian star Jannik Sinner beat Novak Djokovic twice on the same day, in the Davis Cup semifinal between Italy and Serbia, in singles and doubles, managing an epic goal. With his performances, he managed to bring his national team to the final of the tournament.
In the press conference, the world number 4 commented with satisfaction at the result obtained, projecting himself towards the final against Australia. "The match of my life, I don't know, but it's certainly very, very important.
As I said, the last match helps a lot if it's a team match, because you get a lot of energy from your teammates, from the whole team, and then the crowd is different. It was a good match. I started very well, and obviously, in the second set, he raised his level.
In the third set, I tried to hold my service games and wait for a good opportunity, which came at 5-5, and I took it. Obviously, it was a crucial match for the whole team. At the end of the match, I was really happy for the team that we could play at least a decisive double.
We played very well and I think today was a very positive day," explained Sinner.
Sinner on his feelings, after beating Nole twice in a few hours
The Italian managed to beat Djokovic twice in the same afternoon. "It means a lot.
Obviously, before the match we said to each other that today was a very important test, to understand what to expect before the match. Then I think we had a good tactical moment even before the match, and then obviously playing is a little different, but I think I should be very proud of how I handled the situation.
As I said, I'm very happy for all of us, for the team, and tomorrow we have a great opportunity. It's the first time we can play a Davis Cup final, which means a lot for us," said the Italian. Sinner concluded by talking about the final against the Australian team, in particular his possible match with De Minaur, and the Volandri's choices.
"We don't know who will play. Yes, we have to decide. You know, I have a lot of hours in my legs. I know that. If I play against him, it will be different. You know, finals, as I said, are always different. But let's see. The decision is up to him. He is the captain of the team. So he can answer,” he said.
