ATP Finals groups

Match-ups

In Red Group, Medvedev kicks off proceedings against Miami Open champion Hurkacz. The two men have faced off twice on tour, both in 2021.

Hurkacz won their first encounter in the fourth round of Wimbledon, before Medvedev gained revenge at the Canadian Masters.

The order of the second set of round-robin matches has not yet been determined.

However, Zverev will face Wimbledon finalist Berrettini. It will be their second meeting in 2021, Zverev defeating the Italian in the Madrid Masters final. The German leads their head-to-head 3-1.

Medvedev and Zverev will face each other for the 11th time, tied at five wins each. Berrettini will take on Hurkacz for the first time since ousting the Pole to reach the Wimbledon final.

Finally, Berrettini has the chance to gain a first win over Medvedev, losing on two previous occasions. Meanwhile, the same is true for Hurkacz against Zverev, the Pole losing their only meeting at the 2019 Madrid Masters.

In Green Group, Djokovic first takes on Ruud. The two have met once on the ATP tour, in the semi-finals of the 2020 Rome Masters. Djokovic came out on top that day.

Tsitsipas will play Rublev in a repeat of the Monte Carlo Masters final from earlier this year. The Greek narrowly leads Rublev 4-3 in that head-to-head.

Djokovic will battle Rublev for the very first time when they meet in Turin. This is the only maiden head-to-head at the whole event in the group stage.

Ruud and Tsitsipas are tied 1-1 heading into their round robin showdown. Lastly, Djokovic and Tsitsipas meet for the first time since the Roland Garros final, while Ruud attempts to land a first win over Rublev, down 0-4.
