Today brings the ATP Finals – and with it the men’s tennis season – to a close after something of a disrupted year.
It’s now certain that for the fifth year in a row we’ll have a brand new winner of the event, with Dominic Thiem and Daniil Medvedev facing each other in what is sure to be a closely contested match-up.
US Open champion Thiem saw off world number one Novak Djokovic in yesterday’s first semi-final, getting the better of the Serb in an intriguing three-set encounter.
And the second sem-final – a repeat of the 2019 US Open final between Medvedev and Rafael Nadal – proved to be every bit as tight, with the Russian clinching it in the third set.
The final takes place today and will be the last ATP Finals match to take place in London – with the tournament moving to Turin from 2021 onwards.
As the Order of Play heats up, RadioTimes.com brings you the full ATP Finals 2020 schedule ahead of today’s action.

Players in the same group will play each other once. Players will then be ranked in those groups in order of how many wins they picked up from their three matches.
If two players are tied, their head-to-head record is used to break the deadlock. The top two players from each group will progress to the semi-finals where they will play the top two stars from the other group (1st v 2nd, 2nd v 1st) before a grand final to determine the champion.
The dates for the tournament are as follows:
