Welcome message from Andrea Gaudenzi and Hideo Takasaki

Dear Members of the Media,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2020 Nitto ATP Finals, as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the ATP’s season-ending tournament.

First held in Tokyo in 1970, the event has been hosted by major global cities, crowned iconic champions, and has become the mark of sustained excellence throughout the season for the exclusive list of players that qualify. This year’s edition will also cap off a remarkable twelve year stay in London, before the Nitto ATP Finals relocates to Turin in 2021.

This year, the world and our sport have faced more challenges than any other period in recent memory, requiring us all to rethink and adapt the way we work. Whether you are with us at The O2, or joining us remotely this year, we thank you for your support of the Nitto ATP Finals.

It has required tremendous hard work and collaboration to get us to this point, following suspension of the ATP Tour in March. Being able to stage this event is testament to that unified effort and an enormous cause for optimism for our entire sport.

We of course owe our gratitude to Nitto, and our other event partners, for being a major driving force behind this. Without their support and unwavering commitment, this event simply would not be possible.

I wish everyone involved the very best for what promises to be a thrilling season finale.
Andrea Gaudenzi
ATP Chairman
Dear Members of the Media,

On behalf of Nitto, I would like to welcome you to the 2020 Nitto ATP Finals.

This year, we are honoured to be celebrating the 50th anniversary edition of ATP’s crown-jewel event, being held for the final time at The O2 in London. We have been proud title sponsors of this event since 2017, and the many challenges and uncertainties this year have only strengthened our resolve, to play our part in seeing it go ahead.

Of course, without our friends in the media, this prestigious event and Nitto’s commitment to it would not get the recognition that it does. We thank you for your invaluable coverage and continued support, whether you are onsite at The O2, or covering the event remotely this year.

We also look forward to strengthening our relationship with you as the Nitto ATP Finals moves to Turin in 2021, where Nitto will remain title sponsor for an additional five years.

Thank you once again, and I wish you all a safe and exciting week of tennis.

Best regards,
Hideo Takasaki
President, CEO & COO
