Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal lead the ATP Finals which is set to begin Sunday in London. In its 50th edition, the event will be the last one held in the UK after moving to Turin, Italy for 2021.
Djokovic and Nadal were separated into two groups for their round-robin play.
Djokovic will be joined by 2018 champion Alexander Zverev, recent Paris winner Daniil Medvedev and first-time Diego Schwartzman.
Nadal is in the London Group alongside defending champion Dominic Thiem, 2019 ATP Finals winner Stefanos Tsitsipas and the red-hot Andrey Rublev who is also making his debut at the year-end event.
Nadal and his group will open play on Sunday. Rafa will meet Rublev while Tsitsipas takes on Thiem.
Then on Monday, Djokovic meets Schwartzman followed by a rematch of the Paris final between Medvedev and Zverev.
Matteo Berrettini and Denis Shapovalov will assume alternate duties.
With Djokovic already wrapping up his sixth year-end No. 1, what’s the story of the event? Djokovic will try to win his sixth Finals title (and tie Federer’s record) while Nadal is seeking his first.
Zverev and Tsitsipas have won the last two years, so can the youngsters retain the crown?
And how will playing in a fanless arena impact the event?
Group Tokyo 1970
Group London 2020
An undefeated winner will get:
Prize Money – 1,564,000
ATP Points – 1,500
