The 54th edition of the ATP Finals will be held in Turin, Italy, converging the eight best tennis players in the current season.
The 2023 season-ending finale will be staged inside the Pala Alpitour Arena from November 12th to 19th. It is the culmination of another breathtaking season on the men's tour, where the No. 1 ranking changed hands no fewer than seven times.
One of the men who locked up their spot at the tournament is World No. 2 Carlos Alcaraz who became the first player to qualify for the 2023 ATP Finals after winning a maiden Wimbledon title in July.
It is the second successive year that Alcaraz has qualified in the eight-man party. Sadly, he was forced to withdraw from last year's tournament, meaning he is set to make his debut at this year's event.
The second man to qualify was Novak Djokovic. The Serbian star has played the fewest events of all the players who have/are expected to qualify. But remarkably, leads the ATP Race by 770 points from the closest challenger Alcaraz at the beginning of the Asian swing.
Djokovic will play the season-ending championships for a 16th year, and with six titles to his name, he jointly holds the record for the most championships at the ATP Finals (along with Roger Federer). Djokovic will get the chance to take the record by himself in November.
Russia's Daniil Medvedev was the third man to qualify. The 27-year-old will play in this tournament for the fifth consecutive season. He won it in 2020 and finished runner-up the following year. Since losing to Sebastian Korda in the third round of the Australian Open, Medvedev has been on a rampage.
The one-time Grand Slam champion has won five titles and tallied a Tour-leading 41 match wins on hard courts so far. He'll be keen to give a good account himself this season after failing to progress beyond the group stage in 2022.
The fight for the last spots was intense as it always is, but eventually, Jannik Sinner, Andrey Rublev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev, and Holger Rune completed the line-up for the 2023 ATP Finals.
