One of the great showpiece events on the ATP Tour has a new home in Turin as the top 8 men’s singles tennis players in the world battle it out at the ATP World Tour Finals.
The event has been moved from its spiritual home of the O2 Arena in London, where it spent more than a decade and is now set to push the boundaries even further in Northern Italy.
Qualification for the top 8 places in the world is as intense as ever, with the usual host of big name players all vying for a place in the flagship event. However, the absences of Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer due to injury will give the next generation of players increased hope that they can break into the upper echelons of the sport – starting here at the ATP World Tour Finals.With the tournament due to begin in mid-November and 6 of the 8 players in the field already confirmed, here is a rundown of the players seeking glory at the 2021 ATP World Tour Finals:
World number 1 Novak Djokovic claimed three of the four Grand Slam titles available to him in 2021 and looked unbeatable for long periods. He cruised to the Australian Open, French Open, and Wimbledon titles, and the Serb is still out on his own at the top of the world rankings.
This is an event he doesn’t always bring his A-game to but at 8/11 with Paddy Power to win it, and he will again be the man to beat. Note, this UK sportsbook site currently offers several odds boost promos and codes for new betting customers.
Russian Daniil Medvedev has enjoyed an incredible season, capped by his US Open triumph in September. He has firmly established himself as the number 2 player in the world and is the defending champion at this event. Medvedev is 7/2 with Bet 365 to lift the ATP World Tour Finals title again in 2021.

Greek sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas has been knocking at the door of the elite of men’s tennis for a few years now. This is the biggest event he has won to date, lifting the title back in 2019 and how he would love a repeat here in Turin. He is 6/1 with Mansion Bet to win his second ATP World Tour Finals title this season.
Olympic Gold medallist Alexander Zverev looks to have turned a corner in 2021, and his maiden Grand Slam triumph looks in touching distance.He has also won this event (back in London in 2018), and he will relish the speedy indoor courts in Turin. At 6/1 with Marathon Bet, he looks an excellent value punt in a quiet open field this year.
The second Russian in the field already confirmed is Andrey Rublev, a player who has really kicked on in 2021.This season, he has picked up some superb results with a superb all-around defensive game and serious power off both wings. He could be tasked with a tough group initially, but at 10/1 with Coral, he looks a decent outside bet this season in Turin.
Wimbledon finalist and home favorite Matteo Berrettini will be backed to the hilt by the passionate Italian fanbase in Turin. Berrettini has enjoyed by far his most consistent season on the ATP Tour, and he will be making his second appearance at the ATP World Tour Finals. He is the outsider of the confirmed participants at 14/1 with Betway to win the whole thing, but his power game can beat anyone on its day.
