The draw

The Turin urn has drawn two appealing groups full of fascinating face-offs, as one might expect when the best eight tennis players in the world converge in the same city. Four of them, not least, have already won this tournament in the past. The Nitto ATP Finals are landing in Italy, and the Piedmontese capital is ready to receive them, offering to the pure spectacle of the court, a city setting of equal beauty.

Before the kick-off on Sunday, the last element of the preparations was, in fact, the composition of the groups, which equally determines the schedule of matches, a real hot topic for all tennis fans. The two groups, unlike the previous editions, were entitled "Green" and "Red" in homage to the Italian flag and to this magnificent "first time."

The Red Group, also drawn to inaugurate the competition, will launch the dances on Sunday afternoon. The Russian Daniil Medvedev, number two in the world rankings, and defending champion of this tournament, will be leading the charge towards the single-elimination phase. Challenging his access to the semi-finals, Medvedev will encounter the German Alexander Zverev, number three in the standings. He also won the Finals in the past, in 2018, when he would still have been of age to participate in the Next Gen. The group is completed by seed numbers six and seven: the Italian Matteo Berrettini, who will try to make the coup pushed forward by the home crowd, and the Polish Hubi Hurkacz, both at their first participation.

On Monday, instead, it will be the turn of the Green Group, which hosts the only one of the three tenors of the last twenty years who have managed to qualify for Turin. And he did it in grand style. With the number one in the ranking and, obviously, also in this tournament, Nole Djokovic will give the assault to his sixth success, which would allow him to equal the great Roger Federer. To do it, he will first have to come out unscathed from a Round of fire, in which he will cross rackets with the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, already winner of the Finals in 2019; with the Russian Andrey Rublev, in the second consecutive participation; and with the Norwegian Casper Ruud, the third newcomer of this edition.
