“I hope to meet him as soon as possible. These are the important matches for my growth (as a player), the ones for which I say: I win or I learn. Djokovic will tell me where I am.

“I felt closer this year in the semifinals at Wimbledon, despite losing in three sets, then last year in the quarterfinals, when we fought for five. I can’t wait. These are the matches I train for every day, the ones that fill me with pressure.”

Sinner will play the first singles match of the ATP Finals on Sunday when he takes on Stefanos Tsitsipas in the afternoon match. Djokovic will then take centre stage in the evening, as he played Holger Rune knowing he will wrap up the year-end world No 1 title if he can beat his Danish rival.
