All you need to know about the 2019 ATP season finale at The O2 in London

Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic were the top three seeds when they first competed together at the ATP season finale in 2007. Twelve years later, the trio again leads the field at the Nitto ATP Finals.

Nadal, who returned to World No. 1 on Monday, and five-time champion Djokovic will battle for year-end No. 1 at The O2. The 38-year-old Federer, who is set to to be third seed, will be looking to win a record-extending seventh title here. They will be joined in London by defending champion Alexander Zverev, four-time qualifier Dominic Thiem, and three young debutants: Daniil Medvedev (23), Stefanos Tsitsipas (21) and Matteo Berrettini (23).
