Former champion Daniil Medvedev can’t see a clear favourite for the ATP Finals starting on Sunday in Turin.
The second edition of the eight-man season wrapup in northern Italy will be missing new world No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz, out healing an abdominal muscle injury.
Medvedev, ranked fifth, lifted the 2020 edition, with Stefanos Tsitsipas winning the first Italian edition after a decade-long run of the best-selling event in London.
“Everyone is a great tennis player. You never really know who arrives in better mental or physical shape at the last tournament of the year.
“Anyone can win the Finals because there are only high-quality players, there can be surprises from the first match – which would not be a surprise.
“From my point of view, we are all favourites.”
Mevedev begins on Monday against Andry Rublev in a four-man group which also includes Novak Djokovic.
The former No. 1 is looking forward to his start: I’m very happy to have maintained a good level”, he said,
“Last year (here) was incredible because it was a strange year due to the coronavirus. We didn’t play for a long time.”
