Next Gen ATP Finals players 2019

If you want to see a glimpse of what the ATP World Tour proper will look like over the next decade or so, look no further than the 2019 Next Gen ATP Finals field in Milan, with the top eight players aged 21 and under for the season to square off for the right to be crowned champion.

Stefanos Tsitsipas is the defending champion and was still eligible to compete at the Next Gen ATP Finals this season, but the Greek's extraordinary year has seen him break into the top 10 and qualify for the ATP Finals in London as a result, which means he will be absent from the field.

Alex de Minaur will be the highest-ranked player (at the time of writing) in the Next Gen ATP Finals field after breaking into the top 20 with his run to the Swiss Indoors final in Basel, finishing runner-up to Roger Federer. The Australian has won three ATP titles in 2019 and will be making his second appearance in Milan after falling in the final to Tsitsipas 12 months ago.

Denis Shapovalov was set to compete in Milan, but has since pulled out due to fatigue after his brilliant run to the Rolex Paris Masters final this week, with his spot in the field taken by Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. The Spaniard has won two Challenger titles over the last month or so and enjoyed his best ATP run on the clay of Estoril earlier in the season, reaching the semi-finals.

Meanwhile, Frances Tiafoe will be looking to end the year on a positive note after his season slowed down following a brilliant start in which he made a maiden Grand Slam quarter-final at the Australian Open and first Masters 1000 quarter-final in Miami.

Casper Ruud and Miomir Kecmanovic will be making their debuts in Milan this season after both 20-year-olds reached maiden ATP finals in 2019, with Ruud doing so in Houston and Kecmanovic finishing runner-up in Antalya.

After finishing one spot off qualifying last year, Frenchman Ugo Humbert will be competing at the Next Gen Finals this time after making the fourth round of Wimbledon and making three ATP semi-finals, while Sweden's Mikael Ymer will also be making his first appearance after shooting into the field with back-to-back Challenger titles last month.

Italian sensation Jannik Sinner completes the field, with the 18-year-old wildcard announcing himself as one of the brightest young stars in tennis with a huge breakout season in which he climbed over 500 places in the rankings to become the youngest player in the top 100.

About Next Gen ATP Finals

Played for the first time in 2017, the Next Gen ATP Finals were created as a showcase for the best young talents on the ATP World Tour, who will hopefully go on to lead the tour in years to come.

With men’s tennis dominated for the past decade and more by the Big Four of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray, all of whom are now over 30, there is a pressing need to demonstrate that the future of the ATP World Tour is as bright as its past. Hence the creation of the Next Gen ATP Finals, which will be held in Milan for the first five years of its existence.

A complementary event to the ATP World Tour Finals, the Next Gen ATP Finals features a similar eight-player format, with the players divided into two groups of four and competing in round-robin. The two players who finish top of the group will progress to the semifinals. The two players who lose in the semifinals will compete in a third-place playoff prior to the final. The Next Gen ATP Finals does not offer ranking points but does offer $1,400,000 in total prize money.

Qualification for the Next Gen ATP Finals is tracked by the Emirates Race to Milan, which tracks the points accumulated throughout the calendar year by all players aged 21 and under. The top seven players in the Race to Milan qualify for the Next Gen ATP Finals, with the eighth place to go to the champion of a pre-tournament qualifying event for the best Italian players aged 21 and under.

Played at the Fiera Milano complex, the Next Gen ATP Finals feature various rule innovations which will be trialled at the season-ending event with a view to making tennis more fast-paced, interactive and fun.

Match format: Matches will be best of five sets, with each set decided by first to four games and a tie break if the score reaches 3-3

No-ad scoring: Instead of the traditional deuce-advantage format requiring a player to win two points in a row to take the game, there will be a game-deciding point at deuce, with the server able to choose which side to serve from

Shorter warm-up: Matches will begin precisely five minutes after the second player walks on

Shot clock: A shot clock will ensure strict adherence to the rule of 25 seconds between points, as well as during set breaks, medical time-outs and the warm up

Medical time-outs: Players will be allowed a maximum of one medical time-out per match

Coaching: Players and coaches will be able to communicate at certain points during the court

Audience movement: Fans can move freely around the arena during the match

Towel Rack: Players will be instructed to use a towel rack at the back of the court to remove the onus on ball kids to handle towels.

Hyeon Chung won the inaugural Next Gen ATP Finals in 2017, beating Andrey Rublev in the final before going on to make the Australian Open semi-finals in January of 2018. Stefanos Tsitsipas is the defending champion after defeating Alex de Minaur in the 2018 final, with the Greek going on to establish himself in the top 10 this season.
