The Nitto ATP Finals is the year-end climax to the ATP Tour season. The event, which features only the world’s best eight qualified singles players and doubles teams, is contested in a round-robin format with the best four players and doubles teams reaching the knockout semi-finals stage.
Novak recorded five wins last year en-route to the title. He can secure the year-end no.1 ranking with a single win at this year’s end-of-season tournament.
