About tournament

ATP Finals

The ATP Finals is one of the most prominent tennis tournaments out there second only to the four Grand Slam events. The tournament first started taking place in 1970 and will have its 51st rendition in 2021. The ATP Finals were played in the O2 Arena in London between 2009 and 2020 but will move to Turin, Italy from 2021.

And the 2021 ATP Finals event promises to be one of the most exciting ones to date. It will feature the best of the best in male tennis, and everyone will try to get one title closer to six-time winner Roger Federer.

2021 ATP Finals Favourites

And it's Roger Federer who will be among the main favourites for the 2021 title. The Swiss tennis champion has won the tournament six times and has been the runner-up on four more occasions.

However, the decorated tennis star has had his fair share of injury problems as he has grown older and has had to contend with two right knee surgeries recently. This means that he might not make an appearance at the ATP Finals 2021 and if he does, he might not be at his best.

And with Federer's last ATP Finals victory coming way back in 2011, his status as a favourite was always going to come down under scrutiny.

So who does that leave? Well, Novak Djokovic has won the ATP Finals five times, and his most recent win came in 2015, so he is definitely a candidate.

Last year's winner Daniil Medvedev has a very bright future ahead of him, and he is also a strong contender to win. Alexander Zverev, Dominic Thiem, Stefanos Tsitsipas, and Grigor Dimitrov will all be in the mix too as they have been very successful at the ATP Finals recently.
