ATP Finals 2021 Betting Tips And Predictions

The traditional climax to the Men’s professional tennis tour is upon us once again and the 2021 renewal has a new venue.

Since 2009, the finals have been held in London Dockland’s O2 Arena but this year, and until 2025, the tournament will take place at the Pala Alpitour in Turin, Italy.

The games will begin on Sunday the 14th of November and finish on Sunday the 21st of November 2021.

This event sees the top eight players in the world rankings compete in a round robin format which builds towards two semi finals and a final inside a week.

Which of these eight will taste victory in the 2021 renewal though?

Read on to find who we are tipping to win this year’s ATP Finals.

ATP Finals 2021 Betting Tips

Unsurprisingly, the outstanding favourite is world number one Novak Djokovic.

Even by his own lofty standards the Serb has enjoyed a pretty incredible year on the ATP Tour.

Of course, he has been helped by the enforced absence of the currently injured duo of Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal, the pair he has jumped to become the most successful men’s tennis player of all time.

His esteemed rivals from Switzerland and Spain will both be absent from the showpiece event in Turin this week

Nevertheless, take nothing away from Djokovic, even with the superstar pair still playing, Djokovic was always in the ascendancy.

Of the four Grand Slams on offer in the last tennis season, Djokovic picked up three – the Australian Open, the French Open and Wimbledon – and finished as the runner up in the other, the US Open.

He also made it to the last four at the Olympics in what was ultimately a failed attempt to win the Golden Grand Slam.

Now, arguably the greatest men’s player to ever play the game, heads to Turin in search of what has unofficially been dubbed the fifth Grand Slam and is most definitely the man to beat.

While he is the overwhelming favourite, he hasn’t traditionally enjoyed this event at least over the last few years.

He hasn’t won this event in his previous six attempts, last tasting victory in London in 2015 when he won it for the fourth year in a row.

Djokovic has been the runner up on two occasions since then, firstly to the UK’s Andy Murry and then to one of the next week’s very best competitors Alexander Zverev in 2018.

Confidence will surely be at an all time high for the world number one who can be backed at odds of 13/10.

Djokovic has been drawn in the Green Group with Stefanos Tsitsipas, Andrey Rublev and Casper Ruud.

From Russia Serving To Love

The returning champion, Russia’s Daniel Medvedev, is another who has enjoyed a very good year.

The 25 year old happily lopped up the only major Novak didn’t win when he conquered the Serb in the final of the US Open to win his first, and to date only, major title preventing his opponent on the day from winning the Calendar Grand Slam in the process.

He also made it all of the way to the Australian Open where he lost to you now who and is now ranked number two in the world.

In the recent Paris Masters, Medvedev crushed Zverev in the last four before losing a three setter to Djokovic in the final.

Medvedev opens up his campaign against the debutant Hubert Hurkacz who was the final player to book his place in the ATP Finals after he recently reached the semi finals in the French capital.

His game is well suited to the indoor conditions, and he carries a big forehand, strong backhand and a big serve and, as the number two seed, he will miss Djokovic in the group stages meaning he should have a relatively smooth passage into the semi finals.

A deep run is expected is expected of the Russian once again.

You can back Daniel Medvedev to retain his ATP Finals title for 13/5.

Medvedev is up against Alexander Zverev, Matteo Berrettini and Hubert Hurkacz in the Red Group.

German Victory On The Cards

We are also offering 5/1 on Germany’s Alexander Zverev who, it can be argued, is currently in best form out of everybody in the field.

The 24 year old won the gold medal at this year’s Tokyo Olympics and is enjoying his best season to date reaching the last four at both Flushing Meadows and Roland Garros.

The big serving German is also the 2018 ATP Finals champion and is now ranked as world number four, tasting defeat just twice in his last 16 matches.

One of those losses came against Djokovic at the US Open and the other was against Taylor Fritz at Indian Wells.

With that huge serve of his, combined with his at times unplayable groundstroke game, he can look virtually unbeatable when he is in form.

He has really come strong on this year and will worry any opponent.

Greek For Greatness

There is a growing feeling in tennis circles that Stefanos Tsitsipas is headed for seriously big things.

The 23 year old from Athens almost nabbed his first ever Grand Slam this year when he blew a 2-0 set lead to lose the French Open final to the world number one.

He heads to Turin ranked third in the world and won’t fear any of the big other big boys having beaten them all at some point in the past.

The most pressing concern will be the elbow injury that saw him withdraw from the recent Masters event in Paris, but if he can put that behind him he looks like being a major threat in Italy this coming week.

You can back Tsitsipas at odds of 17/2 to win the 2021 ATP Finals outright.

Novak Djokovic – 13/10
