Arnaldi dedicated this significant win to his girlfriend’s recently deceased father, expressing, “I think it was one of the most important matches of my life. I don’t know what to say.”

Reflecting on their triumph, Sinner expressed, “It has been an incredible feeling for all of us; obviously, we are really happy.”
