Held for the first time in Turin, Italy, the Nitto ATP Finals will run 14-21 November at the Pala Alpitour.

Djokovic, who last week clinched the year-end No. 1 FedEx ATP Ranking for a record-breaking seventh time, will look to match Roger Federer's record of six Nitto ATP Finals titles. 

Medvedev is the defending champion after last year claiming the title with a perfect 5-0 record, including a historic hat-trick of wins over the world's Top 3 players (Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem), a first in the 50-year history of the event.

Shortly after the draw, the order of play for the first two days of action — Sunday and Monday — was released. 

On Sunday, home favourite Berrettini will have the primetime slot when he competes not before 9 p.m. against 2018 winner Zverev. Defending champion Medvedev will play in the first singles match of the tournament against debutant Hurkacz.

World No. 1 Djokovic will begin his Nitto ATP Finals on Monday against eighth seed Casper Ruud, not before 2 p.m. The Serbian won their only previous ATP Head2Head clash on clay last year in Rome in straight sets. The other singles match that day will pit 2019 champion Stefanos Tsitsipas against fifth seed Andrey Rublev, who is making his second consecutive appearance at the season finale.
