Sinner Sitting Pretty In Live Race Entering Asian Swing, Can Rublev & Co. Boost Turin Hopes?
With the ATP Tour entering the Asian Swing, the Pepperstone ATP Live Race To Turin continues to heat up.
Carlos Alcaraz, Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev have already punched their tickets for the Nitto ATP Finals, with a number of stars hoping to perform well over the coming weeks in a bid to join them in Turin. Jannik Sinner is currently fourth in the Live Race To Turin on 4,365 points and looks in a good position to qualify for the prestigious year-end event for the first time.
The Italian, who won his first ATP Masters 1000 title in Toronto last month, competed on home soil in Turin as an alternate two years ago. Sinner’s next scheduled to compete in Beijing later this month.

Behind Sinner there are just 630 points separating fifth-placed Andrey Rublev (3,640 points) and ninth-placed Taylor Fritz (3,010 points). Rublev is aiming to qualify for the Nitto ATP Finals, to be held from 12-19 November, for the fourth consecutive year, while Fritz was a semi-finalist at the event in 2022.
Alexander Zverev (3,030 points) is currently just inside the cut in eighth. The two-time champion will look to build on his US Open quarter-final run in the coming weeks. Stefanos Tsitsipas, sixth (3,570 points), and Holger Rune, seventh (3,055 points), make up the Top 8. Rune last won consecutive tour-level matches at Wimbledon.
Last year’s finalist Casper Ruud, Alex de Minaur, Tommy Paul and Frances Tiafoe are 10th to 13th, respectively. All four will need deep runs during the Asian swing to increase their qualification hopes.
