“I lost 8-6 in the third set in the group stages, so I’m just looking forward to the final as I think it will be a great one. Outside of the Slams and the Olympics, this is the biggest tournament in the world,” stated Zverev, 31-4 since his Tokyo triumph.
"It features the best eight players and is difficult to win. I'm looking forward to having another chance. He is one of the best players in the world right now, so it's going to be a difficult match no matter what."
This is the first time since 2005, with David Nalbandian (23) and Roger Federer (24), that neither finalist is over 25-years-old.
So, this could be a Grand Slam final line-up for many years to come. With Djokovic off the scene, who can lay down their marker in Turin?
