ATP Finals groups have been released as Novak Djokovic won't be meeting Carlos Alcaraz or Daniil Medvedev until at least the semifinal stage. Just moments ago, the groups for the prestigious season-ending tournament in Turin were drawn.

Djokovic, who has collected the most points this year, landed in Green Group with Jannik Sinner, Stefanos Tsitsipas, and Holger Rune. Meanwhile, Alcaraz and Medvedev were drawn in Red Group with Andrey Rublev and Alexander Zverev.

While there are no easy matches at the ATP Finals, Djokovic is certainly the top favorite to make it past his group. On the other side, Red Group seems like the group where there will be much more uncertainty. The ATP Finals are starting this Sunday in Turin.

Can Djokovic defend his ATP Finals title?

Since losing the Wimbledon final, Djokovic has won three consecutive titles - the US Open and the Masters titles in Cincinnati and Paris. On the other side, Alcaraz hasn't won any titles since Wimbledon and the Spaniard hasn't been playing his best tennis over the last few months.

Meanwhile, Medvedev has had a couple of notable results in recent times, most notably losing the finals at the US Open, Beijing, Vienna. However, Djokovic is undoubtedly the top favorite at the ATP Finals considering his recent form.

After winning Paris last week, Djokovic made clear his goals in Turin. "My goal is to end up the season on the high note, on the highest note possible. The players that are not fighting for the World Tour Finals like Grigor, they have more motivation to end up this last tournament of the season on a high note, but you also have players who are very tired, and there are also players who are fighting who have a ticket for Turin," Djokovic said.

It remains to be seen if Djokovic can win his seventh ATP Finals title this year and add another major title to his already great 2023 season.
