Daniil Medvedev had a much easier path to the ATP Finals in Turin. The Russian defeated 6: 4, 6: 2 Norwegian Casper Ruud, who made his debut in this event, in the semi-finals. Alexander Zverev needed three sets and almost 2.5 hours to eliminate Novak Djokovic, the leader of the world ranking. Both Zverev and Medvedev have already won the ATP Finals tournament. The Russian did it last year, and the German – in 2018.
