Greek star Stefanos Tsitsipas has become the fourth player to qualify for the Nitto ATP Finals scheduled to be played in November this year.

Notably, four spots are up for grabs in the singles of the year-end championships.
His overall stats at ATP Finals
Tsitsipas won the 2019 ATP Finals, the first edition of the year-end championship he featured in. The Greek star defeated Daniil Medvedev, Alexander Zverev, Roger Federer, and Thiem en route to the title. However, Tsitsipas has won just one match since clinching the title in 2019. He could not go past the group stage in 2020 and 2021. Tsitsipas is 5-4 in the event.

Tsitsipas defeated fifth seed Thiem 6-7(6), 6-2, 7-6(4) to win the 2019 ATP Finals. At 21 years and three months, Tsitsipas became the youngest Nitto ATP Finals champion since former world number one, Lleyton Hewitt (20), in 2001 in Sydney. The Greek was also the youngest finalist at the year-end championships since Juan Martin del Potro (21) in 2009.
