Nitto ATP Finals: Singles Draw Out

Nitto ATP Finals

STARNBERG, November 13, 2020

The 2020 Nitto ATP Finals starts on Sunday and will be held behind closed doors at The O2 Arena in London. This year marks the 12th and final edition in the capital city of the United Kingdom before the season finale moves to Turin, Italy, next year.

It is also the 50th anniversary of the first staging of the event, and the two round-robin groups have been named Tokyo 1970 and London 2020.

World No. 2 Rafael Nadal of Spain and defending champion Stefanos Tsitsipas from Greece have been drawn in the same group, joined by reigning US Open champion Dominic Thiem of Austria and Russian debutant Andrey Rublev.

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic of Serbia, who is bidding for his sixth title, heads the Tokyo group and will take on Russia’s Daniil Medvedev, Alexander Zverev from Germany and the second debutant, Diego Schwartzman of Argentina. Djokovic holds a 39-3 match record this season and has qualified for the ATP Finals 13 times.

Italy’s Matteo Berrettini, the 2019 qualifier, and Canadian Denis Shapovalov are first and second alternates in the singles field.

The doubles draw will not take place until the final team is known and that depends on the results at the Sofia Open.
