The final forecast for the ATP Finals
Novak Djokovic against Casper Ruud
One on one: Djokovic 3-0 Ruud
Novak Djokovic had a “what if” season in which he did not play two Slams and won the one without points. The Serbian, who reached the ATP Finals despite having just 360 points from Slams, is a testament to his level of play when he was on, suffering just six defeats on tour all year.
The 35-year-old’s tough indoor season was impressive after winning titles in Tel Aviv and Astana after a two-and-a-half-month break after Wimbledon before reaching the Paris-Bercy final. At the ATP Finals, Djokovic continued his form, starting with straight sets wins over Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrei Rublev. After the semi-final was already guaranteed, in the third set he did a great tiebreak against Daniil Medvedev. Djokovic was broken in every set in his semi-final against Taylor Fritz, but won both in tiebreaks to reach his first ATP Finals final since 2018.

Ruud has had a brilliant season in 2022, working his way up to second in the standings and could end the season just behind Carlos Alcaraz if he takes the title here in Turin. The Norwegian has already won three titles and grand finals at the French Open and the US Open this year. Ruud overcame a weak spell in form after the US Open in Turin by beating Felix Auger-Aliassime in two tight sets before beating Taylor Fritz in a third set tiebreak. The 23-year-old lost to Rafael Nadal after already securing a semi-final where he defeated Andrei Rublev 6-2, 6-4 to book his third major final in 2022.
Djokovic has won the last three meetings in straight sets, twice in the semifinals of Rome and once in the group stage of Turin last season. In his current form, the Serb should lift the ATP Finals trophy for the sixth time in his career.
Prediction: Djokovic in 2
