The ATP Finals 2021 are here and the top eight tennis players in the world will compete for glory in the season-ending championship. World number one Novak Djokovic and defending champion Daniil Medvedev will duke it out for the crown, but Rafael Nadal misses out due to injury. Tennis fans in the UK can watch the ATP Finals 2021 free on Amazon Prime. Here's how to get a free ATP Finals live stream from anywhere.
Djokovic is the world number one, while Medvedev is number two, so it promises to be a real battle of the heavyweights (in sharp contrast to the ladies' final, where both players were unseeded).
The 141st US Open has been hotly anticipated for Novak Djokovic. He has already won Wimbledon, the Australian Open and the French Open this year – securing the US Open title would make it his first ever complete Grand Slam. That would also make him the first player in the modern era to win all four tournaments in one year since Rod Laver in 1969.
It would be yet another entry in the history books for the Serbian. He already has 85 singles titles to his name, three of them the US Open, and six of them Wimbledon titles. This year, he's been on thrilling form, with his record so far standing at an impressive 38 matches won and just five lost. He'll be hoping to notch up another win on Sunday.
Standing in his way is Daniil Medvedev. The world number two has youth on his side – at 25 years old, he's nine years Djokovic's junior, though the flip side of that is that relatively speaking, he's less experienced. Though he's anything but a beginner – he's already picked up 12 singles titles, including the US Open in 2017, and has a track record of 40 wins and 10 losses so far for 2021.
Can he stop the seemingly inevitable dominance of Djokovic? The final promises to be an East Coast thriller.
