Novak Djokovic opens up on how he feels in Turin ahead of ATP Finals

Novak Djokovic is seemingly enjoying his stay in Turin as he feels it is a great city and definitely deserves to be hosting a prestigious tournament such as the ATP Finals. After 12 years in London, the ATP Finals relocated to Turin last year.

The ATP Tour and the city of Turin signed a deal that makes Turin the ATP Finals host between 2021 and 2025. "Hey guys, hello everyone. Just for the ceremony today, the trophy ceremony. Getting ready to perform. Hopefully, we'll see many of you in the stands in the upcoming days.

Beautiful weather here in Torino. Wonderful city. Great city to host one of the best tournaments in the world and the best players in the world," Djokovic said in a video for the ATP Tour.

Djokovic wants to cap off his season on a high note

Djokovic is a five-time ATP Finals champion but surprisingly he hasn't had a triumphant run at the prestigious season-ending tournament since 2015.

Djokovic captured his first ATP Finals title in 2008, when he defeated Nikolay Davydenko in the final. After going without a trophy in the next three years, Djokovic captured four consecutive ATP Finals titles between 2012 and 2015.

Then, Djokovic ended as runner-up at the ATP Finals in 2015 and 2017. In his last three ATP Finals appearances, Djokovic went without making a single final. Last year - in Turin's first year as the ATP Finals host - Djokovic made the semifinal before losing to Alexander Zverev.

So far this indoor season, Djokovic has made three finals and has won two titles. Djokovic has been playing extremely well in recent weeks and he is definitely the top favorite for the title going into the tournament. This year, Djokovic captured one Grand Slam and one Masters title.

In the ATP Finals group stage, Djokovic will be taking on Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev. It remains to be seen if Djokovic can cap off his season with his sixth ATP Finals title.
