While the battle for the last three berths at the ATP Finals in Turin wages on in Basel, Vienna and Paris over the next 10 days, the field for the Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan has been set.

On Thursday, Switzerland’s Dominic Stricker qualified as the eighth player for the season-ending event for players aged 21-and-under on the ATP Tour.

Stricker joins Lorenzo Musetti, Holger Rune, Jack Draper, Brandon Nakashima, Jiri Lehecka, Chun-Hsin Tseng and Francesco Passaro in the tournament which runs from November 8 to 12.

This also marks the first time that two Italian men – Musetti and Passaro – have qualified for the tournament. Stricker is also the first player from Switzerland to qualify for the event.

For Musetti, Rune and Nakashima, this will be the second time that they have qualified for the tournament after 2021 while it will be a debut appearance for the other five players in the field.

Former champions at the tournament include Chung Hyeon (2017), Stefanos Tsistipas (2018), Jannik Sinner (2019) and Carlos Alcaraz (2021). The tournament was not held in 2020 due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
