ATP Finals: Berrettini and Sinner increasingly distant

The last week of ATP events gave important clues about the next participants in the ATP Finals in Turin, scheduled for Nov. 13-20. Currently the qualified players are Carlos Alcaraz, Rafael Nadal, Casper Ruud, Stefanos Tsitsipas, and Novak Djokovic. Three spots remain available.

The victories of Andrey Rublev at the ATP 250 in Gijón and Felix Auger-Aliassime at the ATP 250 in Florence have further dimmed the hopes of Matteo Berrettini and Jannik Sinner. The Russian with the success in Spain consolidated his sixth place in the rankings (behind compatriot Danil Medvedev) to 3440 points and is close to qualification. The Canadian tennis player with the triumph in Tuscany overtook American Taylor Fritz in the Race and hoisted himself to seventh position with 3065 points to his credit.

Jannik Sinner, still struggling with the injury suffered in Sofia, is 755 points behind Aliassime and his hopes of qualifying are really slim. Matteo Berrettini, further behind his compatriot and 840 points behind the Canadian, has perhaps his last chance this week with the tournament in Naples. Any success by the Roman tennis player could relaunch him in his run-up to the ATP Finals.

There are no official verdicts yet, but the scenario of experiencing the last major event of the season without Italian tennis players is highly likely.

The term ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) refers to the association that brings together all male professional tennis players from all corners of the world.
The ATP’s primary task is to protect the interests of the players and also to organize essential services, such as, for example, the drafting of the world ranking, called the ATP ranking, and tournament planning.
