ATP Finals player profiles: Novak Djokovic aims for sixth title as Rafael Nadal seeks first
Eight players compete at the season-ending tournament in London
The 2020 ATP Finals get underway in London on Sunday as the top eight male tennis players in the world compete for the prestigious title.
Qualification is based on points accumulated throughout the season. Those who qualify are then split into two groups of four in a round-robin format, meaning each player plays three group-stage matches.
The top two from each group progress to the semi-finals.
Ranking points and prize money is broken down based on wins throughout the tournament. The maximum on offer is 1,500 points and $1.564 million if a player wins the title undefeated.
This will be the last year London will host the ATP Finals having staged the tournament since 2009.
The most notable absentee from this year's edition is Roger Federer, who would have qualified in fifth position but underwent knee surgery. Diego Schwartzman, in ninth place, was therefore promoted to eighth.
