There are important updates regarding the 2023 ATP Finals. And news on the Race ranking arrives directly from New York, from the US Open, which qualifies the best eight tennis players of the season for the Nitto ATP Finals in Turin, scheduled from 12 to 18 November.
Thanks to the quarterfinals reached at the US Open, Daniil Medvedev has officially detached the pass for the prestigious year-end competition. An absolutely deserved and almost certain goal for some time now for the Russian, who is really having a great year in the ATP circuit thanks to important results.
With the 360 points posted so far in Flushing Meadows, the native of Moscow has reached 5750, exceeding the limit which has now dropped to 5535 (but, naturally, it will drop further with the passing of the next tournaments).
An always constant performance for the 27-year-old, who has won 5 trophies including two ATP Masters 1000 (the Miami Open and the Internationals of Italy). The Russian told: "After Rome I knew I'd probably be in Turin at the end of the year.
It's just nice to know officially. I can just stay at home and then go to Turin, which is very close to me. It will be a nice trip. It's a great feeling to be there so soon, together with Carlos and Novak. I think it's only the second time I've qualified so early… Happy to be in the Finals for the fifth time in a row, and I hope for many more opportunities."
Here are the scenarios in view of the ATP Finals 2023
The three best players of the season are officially in.
Now attention will shift to the others, who will try to get the other 5 places available. Will Jannik Sinner be the next to be sure of landing in Turin? The Italian is currently the first of the non-qualified (4365 points), with a margin of over 1300 lengths ahead of the ninth.
Coming closest is Andrey Rublev, who is still in the running in New York and has already leapfrogged Stefanos Tsitsipas in the standings. Great tussle between Holger Rune, Sascha Zverev and Taylor Fritz, currently enclosed in just 45 points. More detached in this phase Casper Ruud, who however is always in the game.
