The 2020 champion joins Alcaraz and Djokovic in Turin

Daniil Medvedev on Monday became the third player to qualify for the Nitto ATP Finals, which will be held in Turin from 12-19 November. The 27-year-old joins Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic at the season finale.

Medvedev will compete in the year-end championships for the fifth consecutive year after defeating Alex de Minaur to make the US Open quarter-finals. He won the Nitto ATP Finals in 2020 and reached the final in 2021.

The five-time qualifier has earned his place at the Pala Alpitour with a consistent season during which he has lifted five ATP Tour trophies, including two ATP Masters 1000 triumphs.

“After Rome you kind of know I'm probably there. It's just nice to have it official, to kind of know. I can just stay at home and still go to Turin, which is very close from me. Would be a nice trip,” Medvedev joked. “That's a nice feeling to be there that early, probably together with Carlos and Novak. I think that's only second time I’ve qualified that early… Happy to be there fifth time in a row, and hopefully many more.”

From the start of Rotterdam in February, Medvedev won 26 of 27 matches. He earned crowns in Rotterdam, Doha and Dubai. After losing to Carlos Alcaraz in the Indian Wells final, he emerged victorious in Miami.

The 27-year-old also enjoyed a breakthrough on clay. Medvedev went 10-3 on the surface and claimed his first title in Rome, where he lost just one set en route to the trophy.

According to Infosys ATP Stats, the former World No. 1 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings has won 53 matches this year, second on the ATP Tour behind only Alcaraz. It is the third time he has earned at least 50 tour-level victories in a season (2019, 2021).

Medvedev owns a 9-7 record at the Nitto ATP Finals.
