Croatia’s No.1 tennis player and World No.4 Marin Cilic has qualified for the Nitto ATP Finals, to be held from 12-19 November at The O2 in London.

The Nitto ATP Finals in London features the ATP’s best eight singles players and doubles teams of the season and sees them compete over eight days at the biggest indoor tennis tournament in the world.

Cilic has had a fantastic 2017 which saw him claim the ATP World Tour 250 crown at the TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Open in April. He then went on to reach two finals, one at the Aegon Championships at the Queen’s Club, and the other at Wimbledon.

The 29-year-old also won in Istanbul and became the third Croatian to record at least 400 match wins along with Goran Ivanisevic and Ivan Ljubicic. He is currently ranked No.4 the world which is a career-high. The season finale also offers one of the biggest paydays in tennis, with more than $2m awaiting an undefeated singles champion

More than 250,000 will attend The O2 arena this year, as well as a global TV viewership of more than 100 million.
Meanwhile, Borna Coric has qualified for the inaugural Next Gen ATP Finals to be held 7-11 November in Milan which features the top eight 21 years-old-and-under players in the world.
