There is only one group game to go in both sections of the ATP Finals but it already looks pretty clear as to who will be challenging for the title at Pala Alpitour in Turin.

The Green Group is being dominated by home favourite Jannik Sinner following wins over Novak Djokovic and Stefanos Tsitsipas and he can seal a first-placed finish with victory over Holger Rune.

Djokovic can join him in the semi-final by beating Hubert Hurkacz, who is an injury replacement for Tsitsipas, so the world number one is still very much in the running for a record-breaking seventh ATP Finals title.

In the Red Group, Daniil Medvedev is the man to beat and he is a perfect two from two following successes over compatriot Andrey Rublev and Alexander Zverev.

Medvedev faces Carlos Alcaraz in his final group encounter and the Spaniard needs a victory as he has won one and lost one of his opening two matches.

Rublev is out as he has lost his opening two games to Medvedev and Alcaraz, although Zverev can still qualify with a win providing results go his way.

ATP World Tour Finals Prediction

  • Novak Djokovic to win ATP Finals @ 7/4

Djokovic remains at the head of the betting for the ATP Finals despite suffering defeat to Sinner in his second match.

The super Serb made a winning start to his title defence, overcoming Danish youngster Holger Rune 7-6 6-7 6-3, before enduring a three-set loss to Sinner, who triumphed 7-5 6-7 7-6 in a thrilling three-hour contest.

However, the world number one is still likely to make the semi-final as victory over Hurkacz, a player he has defeated in six straight meetings, would see him advance.

With Sinner set to overcome Rune to maintain his perfect start, Djokovic would face the Red Group winner and that looks like being Medvedev.

However, Medvedev is an opponent that suits Djokovic and he would be a worthy favourite to overcome the Russian, who has lost 10 of his 15 meetings with the Serbian great.

There is every chance that Djokovic could renew his rivalry with Sinner in the final but that was a contest that was settled by fine margins and that could have gone either way.

Despite suffering defeat there was little wrong with the performance of Djokovic, who served 20 aces and dropped serve only twice in what was a super spectacle.

The crowd was certainly advantageous for Sinner but Djokovic will know what to expect if they meet again and can turn the tables.

The 36-year-old has lost only one of his last 19 matches and he had won his four previous meetings with Sinner, who will be feeling the pressure to deliver in the final.

So at 7/4, there is still value to be had in backing Djokovic to claim his seventh ATP Finals crown.

Sinner is an obvious danger but at 9/4 he can be swerved as a semi-final showdown with Wimbledon champion Alcaraz would test his credentials.

Medvedev, with the Red Group at his mercy, is 3/1 and the Russian is a hard-court specialist that should not be taken lightly.

Alcaraz is 11/2 and still in the mix but the Spaniard’s levels have dropped significantly in recent months and a break may be required before he is back scooping big titles.
