The tournament will kick start on 12th November set to be played at the Pala Alpitour Stadium in Italy with last season’s champion, Novak Djokovic looking forward to equalling the records for securing the most ATP Finals titles, held by Roger Federer. The prize money for this year’s tournament has increased by about 103.45% with the total prize cap being $15,000,000 and the participation fee for each player this time is $325,500.

This time, Djokovic will be joined by two-time champion Alexander Zverev who won the competition in the years 2018 and 2021. 2019 champion Stefanos Tsitsipas and 2020 champion Daniil Medvedev will also participate this year. They will be joined by World No. 2 Carlos Alcaraz, Holger Rune, Andrey Rublev, and Jannik Sinner.

Player participating at this year’s Nitto ATP Finals:

World No.10 Holger Rune

Dane’s finest Holger Rune, who was once at the start of the year regarded as the finest prospect in the tennis world, had dropped down the rankings recently.

Due to the unavailability of World No. 7 Casper Ruud and World No. 9 Taylor Fritz, Rune got his shot at the ATP Finals last spot giving him the chance to showcase his talent in the grand stage once more. He flopped very badly this year winning just one title at Munich this season.

World No.8 Alexander Zverev

Two-time champion of the WTA Finals, Alexander Zverev barely made it out to the competition this year, thanks to his performance at the recently played Paris Masters.

Despite not having a great start to the year, he has tried to pick himself up just in time getting amazing results in the last few months which earned him titles at the Chengdu Open and the Hamburg Open.

World No.6 Stefanos Tsitsipas

Greek tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas is a former winner of the ATP Finals as well having achieved the silverware way back in 2019. He spent most parts of this year out of action due to injury but thanks to his performance in the latter parts of the season which helped him stay up the rankings. He has only one title which he won at Los Cabos to boast about this season and would be hungry to finish off the season with one last silverware at the ATP Finals.

World No.5 Andrey Rublev

Russian tennis star Andrey Rublev will play his first WTA Finals this year and there should simply be no doubts about this man’s aims and objectives.

From making it to the top 10 rankings to stacking up constant results in every single tournament this year, he is one of the underdogs to watch out for at the upcoming ATP Finals. He shocked the entire tennis world by lifting the Monte Carlos Masters title with a Bastad Open title to his name as well this year.

World No.4 Jannik Sinner

Italian hotshot Jannik Sinner is a name quickly coming up the pecking order of men’s tennis. Despite being aged 21, he has made quite a name for himself from making it to the semis of the Wimbledon to lifting the Canada Masters. He has also won the Montpellier Open, Vienna Open, and the Beijing Open and might turn out to be a major surprise for the favorites at the ATP Finals.

World No.2 Carlos Alcaraz

It has been quite a long time since a 20-year-old made it to the WTA Finals and Carlos Alcaraz is a player who means business. He had already got the fans on his side after dethroning Djokovic off the top spot for quite some time in the middle of the year.
