It's nearly time for the Novak Djokovic vs Andrey Rublev live stream, where the world's No. 1 men's tennis players looks to keep it that way. Yes, this year's Grand Slam dreams may be dashed, but Djoker won't let another competition with the best of the best (Rublev is No. 5) get past him that easily.

Right now, the Nitto ATP finals (taking place at the Pala Alpitour stadium in Turin, Italy) are still in the round robin Group Stage. Djokovic won his first match against Casper Ruud, 7-6(4) 6-2, and looks to take this match to make sure he's at the top of the Green Group. 

Djokovic was the runner-up to Alexander Zverev in 2018's ATP Finals, and won it in four consecutive years from 2012 to 2015. Daniil Medvedev, the defending champion of singles play at the ATP finals, won both of his previous matches in three-sets per game: 6-3 6-7(3) 7-6(6) over Zverev on Nov. 16 and 6-7(5) 6-3 6-4 over Hubert Hurkacz on Nov. 14.

Despite being fixtures in major tournaments, Djokovic and Rublev have never met each other in play until now. Djokovic is favored to win it, though Rublev beat the dangerous Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets 6-4 6-4 on Monday. As Caesars Sportsbook has it, Djokovic is -500 to win against +350 for Rublev. The over/under is 21.5. 

And so we tune in today — quite early if you're on the West Coast — to see a first time match-up, something still kinda rare when you're dealing with high-ranking established players.

Here's how to watch Novak Djokovic vs Andrey Rublev online.

In the U.S., the Novak Djokovic vs Andrey Rublev live stream will air today (Wednesday, November 17).

It's on the Tennis Channel, airing at 8 a.m. ET / 5 a.m. PT.

If you've cut the cord, you can get the Tennis Channel from Sling TV when you get the Sports Extra package, or in Fubo TV's entry-level package with the Sports Lite add-on. Both are on our best streaming services list, but tennis fans who also love basketball won't want to go with Fubo, as it doesn't have TNT.

Fubo.TV

Fubo.TV: One of the best streaming services for sports fans, and the top pick for watching all of the 2021 NFL live streams, Fubo has all of the right network channels and the two cable channels you don't want to go without. Who needs cable? Not a Fubo subscriber? It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay upfront.
