Neal Skupski and Wesley Koolhof qualify for Nitto ATP Finals
• 2 MINUTE READ
Neal Skupski and Wesley Koolhof have become the first team to qualify for the Nitto ATP Finals in Turin from 13-20 November, following their first round victory at the US Open.
The British, Dutch team have led the doubles race all season having won six titles in 2022 so far – including two ATP Masters trophies in Madrid and Montreal – in only their first year together as a pair.
Their performances have also seen Skupski reach a new career high at world No.3 and came in to the US Open as the second seed in the men’s doubles and top seed in the mixed.
"It will be my first experience of playing it and it's been a goal of mine for many years," Skupski said in an interview with the ATP.
"It's a nice goal to tick off and hopefully we can do well. Hopefully Wes can show me the way to winning the title."
Salisbury and Rajeev Ram are in third at the moment as they aim for a third ATP Finals, meanwhile Glasspool and Harri Heliovaara will both be looking to make their debuts.
In the singles race, Cam Norrie is sat just outside the top eight at the moment at No.11, but a strong outing at the US Open could move him one step closer.
Meanwhile, Jack Draper’s incredible rise from world No.265 at the start of the season to world No.53 at the moment (set to go up again post US Open) has put him in fifth place for the Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan.
