Novak Djokovic officially confirmed for ATP Finals after ‘extraordinary’ run of results

Novak Djokovic has already qualified for the ATP Finals after his remarkle performance in 2021.

Djokovic became only the fifth man in history after Jack Crawford (1933), Don Budge (1938), Lew Hoad (1956) and Rod Laver (1962 and 1969) to win a year’s first three majors after he added Wimbledon to the French Open and Australian open crowns he had already claimed.

“I am happy to have qualified for Turin so early,” said Djokovic.

“Italian fans are very much into tennis so I am sure it will be a great event with a fantastic atmosphere.”

Andrea Gaudenzi, ATP Chairman, added: “Novak’s results this season have been nothing short of extraordinary.

“The Nitto ATP Finals is reserved for the best and qualifying for a 14th time reflects the excellence he brings, year after year.

“We look forward to witnessing him continue to chase history in Turin.”

Stefanos Tsitsipas is currently in second position in the race to Turin, with Matteo Berrettini, Andrey Rublev, Alexander Zverev, Daniil Medvedev, and Rafael Nadal all well positioned to qualify too.

Meanwhile, Croatians Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic became the first doubles team to clinch their places at the ATP finals after capturing their eighth title of the season at Wimbledon.
