The most beautiful story of the ATP Finals in Turin: the children from the Regina Margherita hospital who accompany the tennis players

Happiness is a smile and there is a child who showed it on live TV. The images of the child she accompanied made the rounds on social media Jannik Sinner upon entering the court in the match against Holger Rune at the Nitto ATP Finals. He shook his hand, looked at him enraptured and gave him his personal good luck, showing his fist with his hand. And he continued to smile after leaving the blue tennis player saying goodbye to the packed building in Turin.

This child and the others who accompany the champions on the field are patients «in and off therapy» at the Regina Margherita Children’s Hospital in Turin. The same goes for the little girl who spoke at length with Djokovic. Others like them are invited to attend the matches of the 8 best players in the world and receive the ATP Finals uniform, as well as meeting the tennis players.
