Three players are already in the ATP Finals in London – Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Alexander Zverev – and more than likely Dominic Thiem, Grigor Dimitrov and Marin Cilic will get in.
So that leaves just two spots up for grabs and in the hunt are David Goffin, Pablo Carreno Busta, Sam Querrey and Kevin Anderson.
With 1000 points available in Shanghai, players like Nick Kyrgios can make huge moves into contention. And since the tour will be moving indoors, the big servers like Querrey, Anderson and Berdych should benefit.
Regardless, we’ll see several first time players this year in London.
