The ATP Finals 2020 starts on Sunday. The groups are set and it will be an interesting final event to the strange 2020 tennis season.
The ATP Finals 2020 takes place in London for the last time before it moves to Turin, Italy next year. Italy is having a fantastic growth as a tennis nation and I think getting the ATP Finals is another feather in the hat.
The ATP Finals 2020 groups look like this. If you want more information, check out the ATP Tour website.
Group Tokyo 1970
Group London 2020
As you might know, the format is a round-robin, where the two best players in each group make it to the semi-finals. We usually see a couple of players tired or injured from a long season, but that is not really the case in 2020. Perhaps with an exception for Thiem's blister injury that made him pull out of Paris. But I think he will be ready to go for the ATP Finals.
Who do you pick to win?
Last year's ATP Finals were won by Stefanos Tsitsipas. He loves indoor tennis and his aggressive game suits the surface. Still, I find it hard to see him as a repeat winner.
Nadal has never won the ATP Finals but is fresher than ever. But his issue is also that indoor courts don't really suit him – something we clearly saw in his Paris semi-final loss to Zverev.
If you are a tennis betting man, you might want to consider Zverev, who has been in good form now for a couple of months. You can check out the odds and bet on tennis here.
The main favorite is, obviously, Djokovic, but since he didn't play Paris and pretty much “tanked” in Vienna, it's hard to say how good his form is.
Rublev is arguably the player of the year with five (!) ATP titles, but perhaps he is a bit tired after playing and winning so much. Medvedev is another candidate considering how well he played when he won the Paris Masters last week. It's a tough choice, but based on that I am going to pick Medvedev to win the title.
