Novak Djokovic is apparently enjoying his stay in Turin as he feels that it is a great city and definitely deserves to host a prestigious tournament like the ATP Finals. After 12 years in London, the ATP Finals moved to Turin last year.
The ATP Tour and the city of Turin have signed an agreement that makes Turin the host of the ATP Finals between 2021 and 2025. «Hey guys, hello everyone. Just for today’s ceremony, the trophy ceremony. Getting ready to perform Hopefully, we’ll be seeing many of you in the stands in the days to come.
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 end his season on a high note
Djokovic is a five-time ATP Finals champion, but has surprisingly not 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 for the next three years, Djokovic captured four consecutive ATP Finals titles between 2012 and 2015.
Djokovic then finished as runner-up at the ATP Finals in 2015 and 2017. In his last three ATP Finals appearances, Djokovic did not reach a single final. Last year, in Turin’s first year hosting the ATP Finals, Djokovic reached the semi-final before losing to Alexander Zverev.
So far this indoor season, Djokovic has reached three finals and won two titles. Djokovic has been playing extremely well in recent weeks and is definitely the main favorite for the title going into the tournament. This year, Djokovic captured a Grand Slam title and a Masters.
In the group stage of the ATP Finals, Djokovic will face 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.
