2020 ATP Finals TV schedule, dates

The 2020 ATP Finals tournament takes place daily from November 15 to November 22. Full schedule, channel info below.

The 2020 ATP Finals live stream sees the men's tennis season come to an end. The year-end tournament features the the highest-ranked singles players and doubles teams on the 2020 ATP Tour. 

The event is taking place on indoor hard courts at London's O2 Arena for the final time. The top eight singles players are led by world No. 1 Novak Djokovic and No. 2 Rafael Nadal, who recently met in the finals of the 2020 French Open (with Nadal prevailing).

In both the singles and doubles teams events, the players are divided into two groups of four. In the first round, they compete in a round-robin format, playing against every competitor in the group. 

Then, the two players (or doubles teams) with the best results in each group advance to the semifinals. The winners of a group face the runners-up of the other group in traditional knockout matches.
