The COVID-19-interrupted 2020 ATP tennis season is finally set to conclude with the ATP Finals, which gets underway at the O2 Arena in London from Sunday, November 15. The event will end on November 22.
The year-end tournament will feature eight of the top-ranked men's tennis stars. World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, Spanish ace Rafael Nadal, defending champion Stefanos Tsitsipas, 2018 champion Alexander Zverev, Austrian star Dominic Thiem, world No. 4 Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev are in this year’s roster.
With Roger Federer not competing due to injury, Argentine player Diego Schwartzman is poised to make his debut at the event. Fans in India can watch the ATP Finals 2020 live on TV and live streaming.
The ATP Finals format divides the eight players into two groups. The contestants of each group play each other in a round-robin format.
After the round-robin matches finish, the top two players from each group play each other in the semi-finals, with the winners finally meeting in the final.

The ATP Finals 2020 groups are as follows:
Rafael Nadal, despite having made 16 appearances at the event, will be eyeing his first title.
