The 22-year-old Sinner, who has only appeared at the Tournament of Champions as a substitute in 2021, scored for the team without any problems. Tsitsipas was not offered a single break point and he used two out of five.
The fans were fantastic. It’s not just about wanting to stick together. It’s about where you want to go. And I wanted to come here this year, said Sinner to the support of the home fans in the Pala Alpitour hall.
In the hall, there is the fourth game of the world with a balance of 14 wins and the only loss is the best game on the circuit. I’m glad I started my relationship. And I hope that I will play like this here for a long time, Sinner added.
In the second match of the Green group, defender Novak Djok and newcomer Holger Rune from Denmark will face each other. The Serbian tennis player is aiming for a seventh title from the Tournament of Champions, which would break away from yesterday’s Roger Federer in the first leg of history.
