Two months before the appointment that closes 2021, they already have their ticket in hand. Daniil Medvedev, brand new champion of the US Open, his first Grand Slam, and Stefanos Tsitsipas qualified for the ATP Finals in Turin, moving from London. Thus, there are already three classified, since Novak Djokovic had been the first to get a place for the November pageant.
From the 14th to the 21st of that month, in the Italian city, the best eight of the season will compete in the famous Masters tournament, as well as the most outstanding pairs of the year.
With the title in New York, Medvedev became the third man from Russia to win one of the four Grand Slams and scored enough points to earn himself a ticket to Turin. The same happened with Tsitsipas, who for his part was eliminated prematurely by the Spanish Carlos Alcaraz.
Thus, Medvedev and Tsitsipas will be the game in a special contest, with the eight best on the calendar. The Russian won that championship in 2020 and the Greek did so in 2019.
Meanwhile, Djokovic already had his ticket thanks to the fact that he is the best of 2021, including his titles at the Australian Open, Roland Garros and Wimbledon. Precisely, Medvedev beat him in the final of the US Open and deprived him of the complete Grand Slam in the year and to pass Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, since they are still tied at 20 each.
Precisely, the Swiss and the Spanish, who continue in the ATP World Top 10, will not play due to injuries until 2022. The same situation is going through the Austrian Dominic Thiem, so the three of them are already ruled out for Turin.
