Jannik Sinner finished off his 2023 year with another win, this one officially sealing Italy's 2023 Davis Cup win.

Sinner failed to give the Italian crowd the trophy in Turin last week, but he's redeemed himself spectacularly this week. He proved to be the hero of his country in their run to the Davis Cup trophy, winning singles and doubles matches all week long.

Yesterday's win over Djokovic in singles was huge, and he followed up with some doubles heroics. He then followed that one up with another strong showing today against Alex de Minaur, sealing the win for his country by delivering the crucial second point.

It was a fabulous match from Sinner, who had a pretty easy job after Matteo Arnaldi secured the first point. As good as de Minaur is, he was 0-5 against the Italian before this match, so this was unlikely to go his way unless something spectacular happened.

Sinner didn't allow it to happen as he took the opening set 6-4 behind the super-aggressive play that saw him hit four aces and 16 winners. De Minaur tried his best but he couldn't really summon the necessary level to win the match even though he didn't play badly.

The second set saw Sinner jump out to an early lead as well and from there, it was a rather simple cruise to the finish line. The Italian was just mercilessly bombarding from the baseline and de Minaur couldn't do anything.

The final score was 6-4 6-0 for Sinner, who finished with an impressive stat line of five aces, 35 winners, and ten unforced errors. It was huge win from Sinner, who gave his nation the trophy after a heroic week.

He finishes a superb 2023 year, leaving fans excited about what's to come next year. He's arrived, and he's going to be a problem for the rest of the Tour.
