A little over a week before the start of ATP Finals in Turin, Italy, The two vacant positions are defined in the last tournaments of the race and the competition is really even. This is the picture with the recent results.
First of all, Casper Ruud (3185 points, seventh) and Hubert Hurkacz (3135, eighth), will keep those two places if they beat Marcos Giron (in the round of 16) and James Duckworth (fourth) in his next match at the Masters 1000 in Paris.
One of the players who is about to be left out is the British Cameron Norrie, who fell to Taylor Fritz 6-3, 7-6 (3) in the third round. The Indian Wells champion accumulates 2945 points in the season, but you need that Ruud loses to Giron or Hurkacz (3135, eighth) fails to beat Duckworth this Friday in the French capital. If Norrie is given any of those scenarios, must win the Stockholm ATP to continue with chances.
The other tennis player who is waiting is Jannik Sinner (3015, ninth). The Italian, who lost in the second round in Paris to Carlos Alcaraz, He also needs Ruud or Hurkacz not to win their next game to keep up his hopes. The 20-year-old, whatever happens this week, has to reach the final in Stockholm to continue dreaming of the Turin Masters, the event that brings together the eight best of the year.
