The world no.1 Novak Djokovic reached the semi-finals of the 2023 edition of the ATP Finals thanks to Jannik Sinner's victory against Holger Rune. The Serbian tennis player will now face Carlos Alcaraz to get a place in the final of the year-end Masters.
On the last day of his group, Nole defeated Hubert Hurkacz in three sets, complicating his path and therefore having to rely on the Italian's victory against the Dane. And I, as I write this article, can't help but think how this was a sign of destiny.
The final favorite to win the Turin Masters could emerge from the super challenge in the semi-final against Alcaraz in the semi-final.
What Djokovic really thinks about the Next Big 3
The Serbian champion spoke at the press conference about the new generation of tennis players, focusing on the new Big 3, Carlos Alcaraz, Jannik Sinner and Holger Rune.
Below I bring you the interesting words shared by Nole: "The field is strong. I mean, the generation of Alcaraz, Rune, Sinner is very strong. They are probably the three players that will carry this sport in the future, but also in the present, because they are right at the top of the game, all of them.
Of course, it's expected for young players to be hungry, to be motivated, and to constantly look for ways to improve, get stronger, faster, better, so they can beat the players, best players in the world, and clinch some, yeah, biggest trophies in the game." Djokovic also talked about Rafael Nadal's comeback, explaining: "I think it would be great for the world of sport to see at least one more match between me and Rafael Nadal.
We're talking about the greatest rivalry the sport has ever seen in terms of number of games played. Let's hope it can really happen, I would really like it. Rafa is a great warrior, a person who never gives up. Despite all the injuries he has had, he continues to move forward.
This is definitely something to be respected and admired. For the world of tennis, it is undoubtedly extraordinary news to know that he will return."
