The race to the ATP and WTA Finals

Turin and Cancun get set for two season-ending extravaganzas.

Jannik Sinner has secured a spot in the 2023 Nitto ATP Finals, making him the fourth player to qualify for the event. He joins Carlos Alcaraz, Novak Djokovic, and Daniil Medvedev for the season finale in Turin from November 12 – 19. Sinner earned his place by defeating Marcos Giron at the Rolex Shanghai Masters. This marks his first qualification for the year-end championships, and he’s excited to compete in front of his home crowd. Sinner had a breakthrough season in 2023, reaching his first major semifinal at Wimbledon and winning his maiden ATP Masters 1000 trophy in Toronto. He also won titles in Beijing and Montpellier, showcasing his top form. Sinner’s previous experience as an alternate in Turin in 2021 gives him comfort on the big stage, and he looks forward to participating in the official eight-player lineup for the Nitto ATP Finals.

As we approach the season-ending event, three slots are yet to be filled. Presently, Sinner, Andrey Rublev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev, and Holger Rune have secured spots. However, Taylor Fritz, Casper Ruud, Alex de Minaur, and Tommy Paul remain contenders. Following early exits by Zverev and Rune in Shanghai, Fritz and Rune see an opportunity to clinch those last-minute tickets to Turin.

Aryna Sabalenka, Iga Swiatek, Coco Gauff, and Elena Ryabakina secured their spots after the US Open, with Jessica Pegula joining them earlier this month. The final three spots were filled by Marketa Vondrousova, Ons Jabeur, and Karolina Muchova after the China Open, while Maria Sakkari narrowly missed out. The event will take place from October 29 – November 5, with three players making their debut.

US Open champion, Gauff excitedly announced her qualification in a video, inviting her Mexican fans to watch her play. Over the past month, Gauff played at the China Open and exited in the semi-final stage after experiencing a shoulder injury. Before that, she built a 16-match winning streak that was the best for any woman so far in the tennis season.
