The US Open has allowed us to see, in addition to the first Grand Slam of Daniil Medvedev and Novak Djokovic staying one step away from history, two more qualified tennis players for the Nitto ATP Finals to be held November 14-21 in Turin. They are the Russian Daniil Medvedev, champion of the tournament in 2020, and the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, champion in 2019 and second and third in the 'Race' with 6,380 and 5,470 points respectively (Djokovic is the leader with 8,370).
In this way, Medvedev will be at the Nitto ATP Finals for the third consecutive year and this time he will be number 2 in the world. and as the strongest threat to end the tyranny of the Big Three formed by Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic in recent years. In addition to the US Open Medvedev, which this year already has a record of 47-10, has won the titles in the Toronto Masters 1,000 and in the tournaments of Marseille and Mallorca. “I am looking forward to trying to defend my title in Turin. The Italian fans are very passionate and I am sure it will be a fantastic event.” said the Russian in statements to the ATP.
Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas will also play in the ATP Finals, despite being surprised by Carlos Alcaraz in the third round of the US Open, in which it will be his third consecutive appearance in the tournament. The great year of the Greek, who has been champion in the Masters 1,000 of Monte Carlo, in the Lyon tournament and finalist in the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell and Roland Garros, has his reward with the ticket to a Nitto ATP Finals in which he has already raised the title in 2019. “It's great to qualify for Turin so early. I can't wait to play there. The memories of two years ago in London is one of the most exciting moments of my career, “said the Greek.
There are still five places to be decided for the Nitto ATP Finals in Turin and at the moment these places are occupied by Alexander Zverev (4,915 points), Andrey Rublev (4,030 points), Matteo Berrettini (3,955), Rafa Nadal (2,985) and Casper Ruud (2,675) ). However, the resignation of Rafa Nadal, who ended his season to recover from his foot injury, would now place the ninth in the 'Race', the Polish Hubert Hurkacz, with 2,505 points.
