Jannik Sinner defeated Sebastian Ofner to win the Ortisei Challenger. During the trophy ceremony, as quoted by TennisTour Talk, the Italian player said: “Everything went quickly. Not that long time ago, I sat in the stands and watched the matches of Andreas.
Winning the title here is a super feeling. To finish the season in front of this great crowd is fantastic. Friends and family are here. It was an fantastic atmosphere and the organization was great. I think, I did pretty well this year and deserved a bit of rest now in order to be ready for the next year."
On his relationship with Djokovic, who described him as the next star, Sinner added: "I trained with Novak together, we know each other. But the path is still a long one, it will take some years to get to the highest level."
Ofner added: “It wasn’t a bad final at all. Jannik is a great player and it’s difficult to play against him. Unfortunately, I couldn’t deliver my best tennis today but I can be pleased with the entire week here. I hope to keep it up for the next season”.
