Novak Djokovic joins Rafael Nadal, Carlos Alcaraz in Turin

The 21-time Major champion Novak Djokovic has qualified for the ATP Finals for the 15th time in the last 16 seasons! The Wimbledon winner won back-to-back titles in the previous two weeks, adding 750 points to his tally and booking a place in the year-end top-20.

Djokovic is tenth in the ATP Race, but he has done enough to secure a Turin ticket as a Major champion. Novak will chase the sixth ATP Finals crown and the first since 2015, losing ground a bit in the previous years and hoping to pursue the title and 1500 points.

The Serb is 33-6 this season, missing the Australian Open and the US Open and saving the year after winning the seventh Wimbledon crown. Novak had to skip the Australian Open after a terrible ten-day saga over his visa, with things not looking good for him.

The Serb suffered early losses in Dubai and Monte Carlo in the following months before losing the final at home in Belgrade to Andrey Rublev.

Novak Djokovic will compete at the ATP Finals in Turin.

Building his form, Djokovic lost an epic battle against Carlos Alcaraz in the Madrid semi-final and played on a high level a week later in Rome.

The Serb won the title without losing a set and lifted his 38th Masters 1000 trophy. Novak was ready for more at Roland Garros, playing as the defending champion in Paris and reaching the quarter-final without losing a set.

Djokovic faced his greatest rival, Rafael Nadal, in a battle for the semi-final and experienced a 6-2, 4-6, 6-2, 7-6 loss in four hours and 12 minutes. Novak wasted two set points on serve at 5-3 in the fourth set and dropped the tie break to propel the Spaniard through.

Novak threw everything at Wimbledon and secured his seventh All England Club title and the 21st Major crown. Djokovic trailed two sets to love against Jannik Sinner in the quarter-final before performing one of his memorable comebacks to remain on the title course.

The Serb took down Nick Kyrgios in four sets in the title clash to defend the title and move one Wimbledon crown behind Roger Federer. Novak could not play in Montreal, Cincinnati and New York due to his vaccination status.

He returned at the Laver Cup and defeated Frances Tiafoe before losing to Felix Auger-Aliassime. Djokovic embraced a two-week swing in Israel and Kazakhstan, lifting two trophies and celebrating the milestone 90th ATP title.

Novak should be the favorite in Paris and Turin, eager to take everything from the season that saw him skipping two Majors and missing 2000 points at the one he won.
