The conclusion of the ATP’s 2023 season is finally coming to an end, culminating in the Nitto ATP Final in Turin, Italy, where spectators will witness the top eight players in singles and doubles clash on court.

And, this week, the ATP finally revealed who booked the seventh and eighth spots in the much-awaited Nitto ATP Finals: German player Alexander Zverev and Danish player Holger Rune.

8.Alexander Zverev

Currently, Djokovic holds the record for most ATP championship victories, having won six in 2008, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2022. With two titles from 2018 and 2021, Alexander Zverev comes in second, followed by Stefanos Tsitsipas (2019), and Daniil Medvedev (2020), who each have one.
As for Andrey Rublev, this is now his fourth straight year appearing in the Nitro ATP finals, and he hopes to improve on his impressive run last year, where he reached the semi-finals for the first time.

Jannik Sinner, on the other hand, has participated in the ATP Finals as an alternate in 2021, but this is his first time qualifying for the championship match. Sinner appeared at ease on the main stage during his alternate competition in Turin two years prior. After defeating Hubert Hurkacz in straight sets, the Italian forced Daniil Medvedev to a tie-break in the final set.

ATP Chairman congratulates qualifiers

Andrea Gaudenzi, the ATP Chairman, offered his congratulations to the players via the ATP tour’s official website:

“Congratulations to all the players that have qualified for the 2023 Nitto ATP Finals. It’s a reflection of a truly impressive season. This is a unique tournament, featuring only the best of the best, with so much on the line for players. The stage is now set for an incredible final showdown in Turin.”

Fans’ reactions

After the eight qualifiers were announced in Relevant Tennis’s X account, tennis enthusiasts expressed their delight in seeing a unique set of players this year.

One fan noted, “It is like the “Big Three” of the NextGen group (Tsitsipas, Zverev & Medvedev) and what I call the Y2K Group (Rune, Sinner & Alcaraz) — Thien in exchange to Rublev (who I still like but it isn’t as decorated) would’ve been insane but we know the form he is now.”
While another noted that it was, in her words, the “Perfect lineup 😍🙌💪.”

“Gonna be a brilliant tournament, looking forward to some potential matchups,” said another X user, who agreed that the finals will be amazing.
