The 2018 ATP Finals is a professional tennis tournament for men tennis players. It is played at the end of the season between the highest ranked singles and doubles players of the 2018 ATP World Tour.


Format


The ATP Finals consists of a round-robin format followed by a knockout stage. The top eight singles players and doubles teams are divided into two groups. The top two from each group progress to the semi-finals.


Venue and Details


The 2018 ATP Finals will be played at the O2 Arena in London, England. It is the 49th edition of the tournament with the first one being held in 1970.


The tournament gets underway on 11th November 2018. The final will be played on 18th November 2018.


Defending Champions


Grigor Dimitrov won the men’s singles category of the 2017 ATP Finals. It was Dimitrov’s fourth title of the year and the eighth of his career. He beat David Goffin 7-5, 4-6, 6-3.


In the doubles category, Henri Kontinen and John Peers created an upset of sorts. Coming into the final, the Brazilian-Polish duo of Marcelo Melo and Lukasz Kubot were the favourites to win the title. But Kontinen and Peers won the final in straight sets 6-4, 6-2.


Prospective participants


According to the latest standings, Rafael Nadal will go into the tournament as the top ranked player at the year end tournament this year. He is followed by six-time winner Roger Federer at second spot. German Alexander Zverev is third on the standings with him being followed by Argentinian Juan Martin del Potro.


Fifth on the list is 2018 Wimbledon winner and five-time ATP Finals winner Novak Djokovic. The Serb won the tournament four times in a row from 2012.


Dominic Thiem, Marin Cilic and Kevin Anderson fill the rest of the spots for now.


Favourites among the doubles include the Bryan brothers, Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares and last year’s runners up Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo.


A number of ATP tournaments are still left and these standings are still subject to change.
