TURIN: Russia's Daniil Medvedev and Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas are the second and third singles players to qualify for this year's Nitto ATP Finals, to be held at the Pala Alpitour in Turin from November 14-21, following their showing at the US Open. Both players will compete in the season finale for the third consecutive year.
Medvedev will have a chance to defend his Nitto ATP Finals title one year on from lifting the trophy in London. The Russian claimed his first major crown on Sunday at the US Open, where he ended Serbian Novak Djokovic's pursuit of the Grand Slam at Flushing Meadows.
Earlier in the year, Medvedev climbed to a career-high No. 2 in the ATP Rankings, becoming the first player outside the 'Big Four' of Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray to hold a top-two spot since Lleyton Hewitt in July 2005. Tsitsipas is also a former Nitto ATP Finals champion, having triumphed at the event in 2019. IANS
