09.11.2017 Draw announced for 2017 ATP Finals

The draw ceremony for the Nitto ATP Finals, to be held at The O2 in London from 12-19 November, has been made on Wednesday morning.


The eight-team doubles field is set in two groups. The group names honour players who enjoyed remarkable success at the season finale during the 1990s.


- Group A is named in honour of Woodbridge/Woodforde, the 1992 and 1996 winners

- Group B is named in honour of Eltingh/Haarhuis, the 1993 and 1998 winners


Group Woodbridge/Woodforde

[1] Lukasz Kubot (POL) / Marcelo Melo (BRA)

[4] Jamie Murray (GBR) / Bruno Soares (BRA)

[5] Bob Bryan (USA) / Mike Bryan (USA)

[7] Ivan Dodig (CRO) / Marcel Granollers (ESP)


Group Eltingh/Haarhuis

[2] Henri Kontinen (FIN) / John Peers (AUS)

[3] Jean-Julien Rojer (NED) / Horia Tecau (ROU)

[6] Pierre-Hugues Herbert (FRA) / Nicolas Mahut (FRA)

[8] Ryan Harrison (USA) / Michael Venus (NZL)


The quest to be crowned year-end no.1 in the ATP Doubles Team Rankings will reach fever pitch as Lukasz and Marcelo Melo and Henri Kontinen /John Peers compete at The O2.


Lukas and Marcelo have won an ATP World Tour-best six doubles titles this season, including Wimbledon and three Masters 1000 crowns, while Kontinen and Peers won four trophies - including the Australian Open. With 1,500 points up for grabs, the Polish/Brazilian duo require two round-robin match wins to become the year-end no.1 team.


Lukasz and his partner will open campaign on Monday, November 13, against Ivan Dodig and Marcel Granollers.
