Weekend Tennis Roundup

Novak Djokovic capped another stellar year with a win in Turin. Full report plus see the boys dressed up for Davis Cup and much more BELOW.

Team Italy -- including Simone Bolelli and Lorenzo Musetti -- never disappoints

Novak Djokovic reminded the world why he's the undisputed GOAT on Sunday, clobbering home favorite Jannik Sinner 6-3, 6-3 in the Nitto ATP Finals title match. This came a day after making similar work of No. 2 Carlos Alcaraz, who is 16 years his junior, and finished a season in which he won three majors, made the final of the fourth, and crossed 400 weeks at the top of the ATP rankings. 

The 36-year-old(!) Serbian also made history as the first man to win the year-end championships seven times.

In doubles, Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury ended their late-season surge in spectacular fashion on Sunday, defeating Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos 6-3, 6-4 to successfully defend their title in Turin. 

Despite the win, Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek end the year as the world's No. 1 doubles team -- with Austin landing in the top spot.

Joe Salisbury's coach, David O'Hare, has a lot to smile about 

Watch Big Joe in action HERE.
