Sinner received a lot of praise and praise for the 22-year-old Italian, who demonstrated extraordinary form against an opponent who, although not at his best, remains among the strongest tennis players on the circuit. Among Sinner's admirers there is also Conte.

The former soccer champion is enjoying the spectacle of tennis in the city that made him great, first as a player and then as a coach. Conte said he admired the Serbian world number one.

"I'm really happy that Turin is able to host this event. This is the third year. I wasn't able to attend the previous editions for work reasons, and it was a shame. This year I'm really happy to do it, because you come to see the absolute champions .

I also had the pleasure of meeting Novak Djokovic, I am a great admirer of him. It's all very nice, we must be proud," he explained. Conte then spoke about the 22-year-old native of San Candido, who has now forcefully entered the elite of world tennis.

"Sinner? He has impressive potential. I recently saw his interview on Sky Sport, in which he talks about his mentality and desire to improve to become an absolute champion. You can see that he wants to work. Through sacrifice and work he has reached great levels and he wants to get to the top," concluded the former Tottenham manager.
