Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Alexander Zverev have already qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals, but which five players will join them at the season-ending event in London?

The ATP World Tour Finals in London sees the eight highest ranked players to compete in a round-robin format at the O2 arena for a showpiece season-closing event, the Express reported.

Tennis legends Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have already earned enough world ranking points in 2017 to book their spots in the tournament, while Zverev secured his berth after moving up to fourth in the latest ATP rankings.

The 20-year-old German will be the youngest player to compete in the competitions since Juan Martin del Potro in 2008, a year before it moved to its current home at London's O2 Arena.

Zverev has had a superb season, winning two titles, including Masters tournaments in Rome and Montreal.

"It's obviously a great event, playing in the O2 Arena is something amazing for any player, " Zverev said on atpworldtour.com.

"The atmosphere is amazing. I'll be ready for it. This shows me how well I played all over the season, how consistent I was and I think that's something every player is very proud of."

Stan Wawrinka and Novak Djokovic currently occupy slots in the top 10, but both players have ruled themselves out until next season due to injury.

Meanwhile, reigning champion Andy Murray is unlikely to defend his crown as the Brit struggles to overcome injury in time for the tournament beginning on November 12.
