How can you watch the ATP Next Gen Finals?
The ATP Next Gen Finals are officially the final tournament on the main ATP Tour calendar, despite being classed as an exhibition event with no ranking points on the line.
Beginning back in 2017, the Next Gen Finals features the top seven 21-and-under players from the year, plus a wildcard chosen by the tournament.
The tournament has been held in Milan, Italy, since the inaugural edition six years ago, but was announced to be relocating to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, earlier this year.
Despite being eligible to compete at this year’s event, Carlos Alcaraz, Holger Rune, Ben Shelton and Lorenzo Musetti all elected to skip the tournament in the Middle East.
This has left Arthur Fils as the top seed, with the exciting Frenchman having a breakout season in 2023, having won his maiden ATP title in Lyon and reaching a career-high ranking of No.36.
Fils will be accompanied by Luca Van Assche, Dominic Stricker, Alex Michelsen, Flavio Cobolli, Hamad Medjedovic, Luca Nardi and Jordanian wildcard Abdullah Shelbayh, with the young stars being placed into two round-robin groups of four.
