But then again, if the Red Baron had not been flying for months (“Comparisons with Alberto Tomba and Valentino Rossi are exaggerated, they belong to another level…”), the only tennis player to have beaten all the top three in seven and a half months, 60 victory in the season (only Medvedev, 66, and Alcaraz, 64, more), none of Torino’s creations could be achieved.
