Turin [Italy], September 30 (ANI): Stefanos Tsitsipas is the fourth player to qualify for the ATP Finals, joining Rafael Nadal, Carlos Alcaraz and Casper Ruud.

He continued to perform better at that level by reaching the championship match in Rome and Cincinnati, while also winning an ATP 250 trophy in Mallorca.
The 24-year-old has won 49 matches this season, second on the ATP Tour behind only World No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz (52)On the other hand, Marcelo Arevalo and Jean-Julien Rojer are the third doubles team to qualify for the ATP Finals, joining Wesley Koolhof/Neal Skupski and Rajeev Ram/Joe Salisbury.
