Nitto ATP Finals players 2019

Only the eight best singles players in the world qualify for the Nitto ATP Finals, with standings tracked throughout the season by the ATP 'Race to London'.

These rankings track the accumulation of points throughout the calendar year with every player starting from zero in January, compared to the ATP Rankings which operate on a rolling 52-week basis.

As tournaments take place and the season unrolls, players compete around the world, not just for prize money, ranking points and prestige, but to boost their chances of competing at the ATP Finals - and given that an undefeated champion can earn 1,500 ranking points and over $2.7 million in prize money, as well as the glory of being crowned the best of the best', you can see why the competition is so fierce. Just to be part of the 'elite eight' is an honour - and a career milestone - for many.

At the time of writing, five-time champion Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are the only players to have confirmed their spots at the 2019 Nitto ATP Finals.

Here are the latest standings in the ATP Race to London after seven months of the season have been almost completed.

ATP FINALS 2019 PLAYER FIELD

#1 Novak Djokovic

After having won the Australian Open and Wimbledon in 2019 to bring his total of major titles to a phenomenal 16, Djokovic has recorded another significant milestone by qualifying for the Nitto ATP Finals a twelfth time - meaning that if he does indeed appear in London in November, he'll move clear of Pete Sampras, Boris Becker and Jimmy Connors, who all appeared at the ATP Finals 11 times, and into joint third place on the all-time most appearances list alongside Ivan Lendl.

The only man to win the ATP Finals four years in a row, Djokovic fell short in the 2016 and 2018 finals to Andy Murray and Alexander Zverev respectively but will surely be the favourite to recapture the title in 2019 - a victory which would see him tie Roger Federer's record of six titles.

ATP Finals appearances: 11 (2007-16, 2018)

Best result: Champion (2008, 2012-15)

Win-loss record: 35-12

2019 titles: Australian Open, Wimbledon

#2 Rafael Nadal

Thanks to an incredible twelfth French Open title, as well as victory at the Rome Masters, a runner-up finish at the Australian Open and other strong results including a Wimbledon semifinal run, Rafael Nadal is once again among the very first players to qualify for the season-ending championships.

An ATP Finals title is one of the very few accolades to have eluded the 18-time Grand Slam champion, with his best result runner-up finishes in 2010 and 2013, and in recent years Nadal has struggled to reach the O2 in any sort of competitive condition - he missed the event entirely despite qualifying in 2016 and 2018 and, in 2017, withdrew after playing a solitary match. Can Rafa actually reach the O2 in condition to compete in 2019?

ATP Finals appearances: 8 (2006-7, 2009-11, 2013, 2015, 2017)

Best result: Runner-up (2010, 2013)

2019 titles: French Open, Rome Masters

Nitto ATP Finals Groups

The eight players who qualify for the 2019 Nitto ATP Finals will be drawn into two groups to face off in round-robin play.

About the Nitto ATP Finals

Regarded as the most prestigious annual tennis event behind the four grand slams, the ATP Finals sees the year’s top eight-ranked players descend on the O2 Arena in London in search of capturing the lucrative season-ending championships.

The premise of the tournament is to bring together the best players on the ATP Tour that season for an elite event which showcases the finest the sport has to offer, as well as crowning one player the 'best of the best' for that season. For that reason, it's considered the biggest title in men's tennis outside the four Grand Slams, ranking above the nine Masters 1000 Series events, and every player with ambitions to be considered one of the greats must win the ATP Finals. For those whose career goals are slightly less lofty, it's a huge achievement simply to qualify as one of the 'elite eight'.

Qualification for the ATP Finals is tracked by the 'Race to London' standings, which rank all ATP players by virtue of how many points they have accumulated over the calendar year as opposed to the usual 52-week rolling rankings. Given that winning a Grand Slam title is worth 2,000 points and a Masters 1000 Series title 1,000 points, the field at the season-ending championships usually features the winners of most if not all of the year's biggest events.

The ATP Finals has taken many forms over the years, been known by many names and played in many cities. Its current format is an eight-player round-robin event, with the qualifiers divided into two groups of four. The players in each group thus compete against each other in round-robin matches for six days, with the two players who finish top of each group progressing to the semifinals. The groups are generally named after ATP Finals legends.

A season-ending 'tour championship' has been a fixture of the calendar since 1970 when the Masters Grand Prix was first played, featuring the best players of the Grand Prix Tennis Circuit, although it found itself in competition with the season-ending championships for the rival World Championship Tennis Tour, and in consequence neither event offered ranking points.

Still, the tournament was a popular showcase event for the best players in the world and was played in different cities around the world for the next two decades, most notably enjoying a sojourn at New York's Madison Square Garden between 1977 and 1989.

In 1990, the ATP as we know it was created, and with it the season-ending championship evolved into the ATP World Tour Championship, although it still had to compete with the ITF's Grand Slam Cup, a tournament featuring the 16 players with the best Grand Slam record. 

In December 1999, the rivalry was finally brought to an end with the ATP and ITF agreeing to the creation of the Tennis Masters Cup, which would feature the eight players who had accumulated the most points throughout the calendar year, but with the proviso that the eighth player could be replaced by a player who had won a Grand Slam even if they hadn't accumulated enough points at other events to be included.

The Tennis Masters Cup was played in Lisbon, Sydney, Shanghai, Houston and then Shanghai again over the next decade before being transformed once again into the ATP World Tour Finals and taking up residency at London's O2 Arena in 2009. This incarnation of the season-ending championships proved tremendously popular, routinely selling out the O2 Arena, and the tournament renewed its residency in 2015 to stay until 2020. It will be played in Turin, Italy from 2021.

Unsurprisingly for an event which showcases the best of the best in men's tennis, many of the greatest ever to have picked up a racquet have triumphed at the ATP Finals. Jimmy Connors (1977), Stefan Edberg (1989) and Andre Agassi (1990) are among the players to have captured a solitary ATP Finals title, while Bjorn Borg (1979-80) and Lleyton Hewitt (2001-2) both won back-to-back titles.

Boris Becker and John McEnroe won three singles titles each at the year-end championship while Ilie Nastaste won four between 1971 and 1975.

Second place on the all-time title leaders' list belongs jointly to Ivan Lendl (five titles between 1981 and 1987), Pete Sampras (five titles between 1991 and 1999) and Novak Djokovic (five titles between 2008 and 2015).

Roger Federer holds the undisputed record for most ATP Finals titles with six. He claimed the title for the first time back in its Tennis Masters Cup days, beating Andre Agassi in the final in Houston in 2003 and successfully defending it in 2004 when he defeated Lleyton Hewitt. Federer won the title twice in Shanghai, too, beating James Blake and David Ferrer in consecutive years; and then won the title two years in a row in London, first defeating Rafael Nadal in 2010 then Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in 2011.

Federer's great rival, Djokovic, was about to begin a period of unprecedented dominance, however. Having already won the title in Shanghai in 2008, he became the first man ever to win the year-end championships four years in a row, ruling the ATP Finals and the O2 Arena with victories over Federer (2012), Nadal (2013) and Federer again (2014-15).

Great Britain's Andy Murray put an end to Djokovic's dominance when he became the first British player to win the ATP Finals in 2016, defeating Djokovic in a final which determined the year-end world no. 1 for that season. 

Murray was the first in a trio of first-time winners as he was followed by Grigor Dimitrov in 2017 and Alexander Zverev in 2018. Dimitrov and Zverev were the first players since Nikolay Davydenko in 2009 to have won the year-end championship without first capturing a major title.
