There are seven months to go until the 2019 Nitto ATP Finals, to be held at The O2 in London from 10-17 November. Here’s seven facts about the season finale.
• London has been the home of the Nitto ATP Finals since 2009. The only city to host the year-end Finals on more occasions is New York, with 13, from 1977-1989, when the tournament was held at Madison Square Gardens.
• In the 10 years that the Nitto ATP Finals has been held in London, six different players have won the title: Djokovic (4), Federer (2), Nikolay Davydenko, Murray, Dimitrov and Zverev.
• The only time that the last match of the season decided the year-end No. 1 ATP Ranking was in 2016 when Andy Murray defeated Novak Djokovic in the championship to finish in the top spot.
• Last year, Alexander Zverev became the first German to win the year-end Nitto ATP Finals crown since Boris Becker in 1995. Becker also triumphed in 1988 and 1992 from eight final appearances.
