ATP Finals 2023: date, location, date
This year’s ATP Finals will take place in Turin, Italy, from November 12th to 19th, 2023. The game will be played on the indoor courts of the Pala Alpitour, a multi-purpose hall in the south of the city.
So much for the general conditions. But: How are the participants determined? Who has already qualified? What is the schedule? And where will the fun be broadcast? This article explains that.
ATP Finals 2023: participants, players
The best eight players or doubles teams of the season qualify for the last tournament of the year, plus two substitute players or one substitute team if someone drops out or is unavailable. The selection is based on these criteria (if there are more than eight players/teams, the players/teams that are lower in the selection order become substitute players/teams):
The top seven players/teams in the ATP rankings qualify. Up to two Grand Slam winners (with ATP rankings of 8-20) qualify. The eighth best players/team in the ATP rankings qualify.
And what does that mean this year? At this point in time, Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz and Daniil Medvedev are already safely qualified in the singles. The runners-up still have to tremble:

ATP Finals 2023: mode, schedule
The tournament opens with a group phase in which the eight players or doubles teams are divided into two groups of four in which everyone competes against everyone else. The best two in each group then move on to the semi-finals. Up to and including the final: whoever wins two sets first wins the match.
On each tournament day there is a morning and an evening session, where a singles and a doubles session are played. A total of four matches take place per day (with the exception of the final day). Here you have an overview of the schedule:
Group stage: November 12th – November 17thSemi-finals: November 18thFinals: November 19th
ATP Finals 2023: broadcast on TV and live stream
This year the broadcast situation for the ATP tournaments is a little complicated, some are broadcast by Sky, some by DAZN. At least for the 1000 series and the Nitto ATP Finals it is very simple: Sky is responsible for broadcasting all matches. So if you want to see Djokovic and Co. in action in November, the pay TV channel is the right place to go.
Of course, the same applies if you access the live stream – here you can receive the Sky program on the SkyGo and WOW platforms. Both variants are subject to a fee.
Carlos Alcaraz has also already secured his place.
