With 41 victories at ATP year-end events, Novak Djokovics’ career total is more than the combined victories of the other seven entrants in Turin.

The Serb, who will be competing for the 15th time – he holds five titles – and heads a group comprising two other former season wrapup champions, opens round-robin play on Monday  against 2019 winner Stefanos Tsitsipas.

But after playing a stat-stop 2022 season due to his refusal to get COVID-vaxxed, the 35-year-old is looking for nothing less than another title.

 He called lifting a trophy  next weekend “a perfect ending [to the season. The cherry on the cake, for sure, but it’s a long way – it’s a long week.

“You’ve got to play the best players in the world. I’ve had experience in this tournament, in this format, many times and hopefully that can serve me in a good way.”
