Tennis champions inspire favorite dish competition celebrating the ATP Finals in Torino

On the occasion of the third edition of the ATP Finals in Turin, while underway, in parallel, the Defilippis Pastificio in Via Lagrange in Turin became a refuge for tennis fans, as tennis champions had indicated their favorite Italian dishes and  Defilippis Pastificio prepared the dishes and let the customers vote on them. Thus creating a special menu for an event that brought the Piedmontese capital back to Olympic glories. And the majority vote went to the dish Alcaraz had selected: Mezze Maniche Cacio e Pepe with lemon zest.

This is how the final of the ATP del Gusto went. Alcaraz and his favorite pasta won: Mezze Maniche cacio e pepe with lemon zest, surpassing Sinner's dish of Tortellini au gratin cream, raw ham and peas only getting 59% of the votes. The other ATP colleagues had chosen the following favorite dishes: Novak Djokovic chose tajarin in a vegan version (without eggs or butter) but with white truffle; Danil Medvedev asked for rigatoni with ragù; for Andrej Rublev no pasta but DOP Campania buffalo burrata and 24-month Parma raw ham; Stefanos Tsitsipas with pappardelle with ragù; Alexander Zverev with trofie with pesto, Holger Rune with veal girello in tuna sauce, or veal with tuna sauce.

Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz and fellow Nitto ATP Finals contenders gathered at the Royal Palace Of Turin Friday evening for a spectacular official photo, media availability and reception ahead of Sunday's opening day of play at the Pala Alpitour. Dressed in smart casual, players signed autographs and posed for selfies with Italian fans in the late afternoon before entering the palace, where the official photo was taken on the grand staircase of the Musei Reali-Palazzo Reale di Torino, which was originally built in the 16th century.
