Whether or not he’s the oddsmaker’s choice, Jannik Sinner will certainly be the crowd favorite at the ATP Finals. The 22 year-old Italian enters the tournament sporting a career-high No. 4 ranking and enjoying a highly productive fall season. The indoor environments this time of year clearly suit his power baseline attack, as Sinner won titles in Beijing and Vienna, registering victories over Carlos Alcaraz and Daniil Medvedev (twice) along the way.

The rest of the calendar yielded big moments as well. Most notably, Sinner captured his first Masters 1000 title in Toronto. His four total titles have been a solid bounce-back from his lone win last year, and matched his previous season-high (2021). He’s also 8-5 against Top 10 opponents, a big improvement over the 9-21 record he carried into the season.

Where the Slams were concerned, Sinner continued to be something of a heartbreak kid. On the positive side, he did reach his first semifinal at Wimbledon, where he lost in straight sets to Novak Djokovic. However, Sinner’s other three defeats all came in five sets. In fact, five of his last six losses at majors have come in a decisive set. Gaining confidence that he can cross the finish line of extended seesaw matches will keep him a more regular fixture in the second week of Slams.

Sinner competed as an alternate at the 2021 ATP Finals, making this trip the first time he has qualified with a direct entry. Now firmly inside the Top 10, it could be a sign of bigger things to come.

Head Speed MP 2022 ($149) (Purchase now at

The all-around versatility and playability of the Speed MP has made it the best-selling model in Head’s entire lineup. The frame features an attractive balance of power and control with plenty of spin potential to boot. It’s a racquet with the necessary forgiveness for novices and intermediates to grow with, yet still refined enough for more accomplished players. This current version features Auxetic construction in the yoke, which gives the frame an overall sturdier and comfortable feel, particularly on off-center hits. The softer flex of the latest Speed only adds to the pleasing response at contact. In addition to the standard model, a special-edition Speed MP Black ($259) is also available.
