That was followed by a repeat of last weekend’s ATP Finals decider with the world No 1 Novak Djokovic facing off against the world No 4, Jannik Sinner.

The Serb legend was victorious in Turin but in a match that those present would have been overjoyed to witness, In a remarkable comeback, Sinner won the match after finding himself trailing Djokovic 4-5, 0-40 on his serve, and a triple match point down in the final set.

In what was his third battle in 11 days with the best male tennis player of all-time, Sinner pulled out all the stops on the Costa del Sol today to level the Davis Cup tie at 1-1 by winning  6-2 2-6 7-5.
