SIXTH. A country delirious for its champion. On Sunday evening, in Sesto Pusteria as well as throughout Italy, several hundred people attended the final of the Masters 1000 in Miami in which Jannik Sinner triumphed against the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov (article here), winning the thirteenth title of his career, the second Master 1000 and, last but not least, second place in the world ranking.

A masterpiece match which projected the South Tyrolean into the wake of the number one in the world Novak Djokovicwhich is now just over 1000 points away: 8710 those of Sinner, 9725 those of the Serbian.

It’s time to absolute primacy is a more than concrete objective – if the sample of Sesto Pusteria if he reconfirms himself at these levels also on clay, he could in fact reach it already in June after the Roland Garros – the enthusiasm in the South Tyrolean country is growing day by day.

To tell it, in the Dolomiti, it is the mayor of Sesto Pusteria Thomas Summerer who without hesitation declares: “We definitely have the best tennis player in the world, even if he’s still in second place now.”

And the story of Sunday evening, by the Mayor, let it be understood adrenaline which you can touch first-hand in the village.

“During the final there were hundreds of us at the sports center to follow the match, all together to cheer on Jannik – explains Summerer – and even in all the hotels and clubs people were glued to their televisions for what could be called the perfect race.”

But the affection for that little red-haired boy, who is now a man one step away from the roof of the worldgoes well beyond the pitch and there is also a big party planned to embrace him again: “We are all very happy and proud of Jannik especially for the person he is: human, simple and truly humble. I can tell you that there will be a big party in the village, we are organizing it together with his team: we haven’t set a date yet, but it will most likely be after the clay tournaments. If he then arrives here as number one in the world, then we will also think about building a monument to him (laughs, ed.).”
