Nitto ATP Finals 2019: Latest news, tournament information, schedules and live streams for the ATP’s season-ending championships
There are several sub-plots to the 2019 Nitto ATP Finals, but the most significant is the race to finish the year as the No. 1 player in the world. Nadal currently holds the position, but the great Spaniard is just 640 points ahead Djokovic, and with 1500 points on offer for an undefeated champion in London, that year-end No. 1 ranking is still very much on the line.
Form is with Djokovic, who goes into the Finals on the back of his Paris Masters success, while Nadal’s participation remains in doubt after he withdrew from his scheduled Paris semi-final against Denis Shapovalov due to an abdominal strain. The Spaniard has never won the Nitto ATP Finals.
Djokovic is looking to win the tournament for the sixth time, which would equal the all-time record held by Federer- the great Swiss will obviously attempt to claim the title and extend his record.
The 2019 Nitto ATP Finals features three debutants, with Medvedev, Tsitsipas and Berrettini all participating for the first time, while Roberto Bautista-Agut and Gael Monfils are on stand-by as first and second alternates should any of the top eight pull out of the tournament.
The Nitto ATP Finals is live from London’s O2 Arena from 10-17 November.
