Novak Djokovic has secured a record seventh ATP Finals title after defeating Jannik Sinner with a flawless performance in Turin. Despite initially losing to Sinner in the group stage, Djokovic’s coach, Goran Ivanišević, knew he would ultimately come out on top.
Ivanišević revealed that they didn’t see Djokovic at all until Thursday, leaving uncertainty about whether he would even continue in the competition. However, after his loss to Sinner, Djokovic continued to push himself and eventually won the tournament.
Djokovic described this season as one of the best of his career, winning three of the four Grand Slam titles and only losing in the Wimbledon final. With 55 wins and only six losses, he secured a total of seven titles.
Ivanišević praised Djokovic’s performance during the knockout phase, especially against his toughest competitors Daniil Medvedev and himself. He also expressed pride in Djokovic’s ability to stay focused on his goals despite facing inner struggles as the best player in the world.
Djokovic expressed gratitude towards his coach for always pushing him to be better and for believing in him even when others didn’t. He also highlighted Sinner’s fearlessness in competing against top players and predicted that he could win Grand Slam titles in the future.
