Angelo Binaghi: "ATP Finals 2023 will be a record edition"

Turin is ready to host the 3rd edition of the Nitto ATP Finals. The most important tournament on the tennis circuit, after the four Grand Slam tournaments, and the Piedmontese city are linked for five years: two have gone and the third is about to arrive.

The President of the Italian Tennis and Padel Federation, Angelo Binaghi, talked about this new edition, which should be full of records. He explained in a press conference: "This will be the edition of records, we have created larger structures that must accommodate a greater number of people and above all guarantee the same quality of experience as in the first two years." The goal is to do things big, also in view of what could be the edition in which an Italian could be part of the tournament, being among the best eight in the world: we are talking about Jannik Sinner.

Binaghi said: "We have to go bigger also because the sporting results say so. The ATP circuit has passed the halfway point. We are missing one Grand Slam out of four and four Masters 1000 out of nine. We have an Italian in fifth place in the Race, the ranking with which you access Turin, which has over a thousand points ahead of ninth."

The updated ATP Race

For now, Jannik Sinner would fully return to this edition of the Nitto ATP Finals.

The only certain of qualification is Carlos Alcaraz, Wimbledon winner who got the pass right after the success at the All England Club. There is no mathematical certainty, but Novak Djokovic also has all the numbers to return to defend the title won last year in Turin.

The number one of Italy is sixth in the race, preceded respectively by Daniil Medvedev, Andrey Rublev and Stefanos Tsitsipas; the Italian are followed by the two Scandinavians Holger Rune and Casper Ruud, last year's finalist.

The North American season on hard-courts and the indoor one, however, could still change the cards on the table.
