Daniil Medvedev defeated Dominic Thiem in the final, 4-6, 7-6(7-2), 6-4 to win the singles title at the 2020 ATP Finals.[1] It was his first title at the ATP Finals, and he became the first player to defeat the top 3 ranked players in the world en route to a title since David Nalbandian at the 2007 Madrid Masters, as well as the fourth player to do so overall after Nalbandian, Novak Djokovic and Boris Becker.[2][3][4]

Stefanos Tsitsipas was the defending champion, but he was eliminated from the competition in the round robin.[5] This was the first time since 2008 that the defending champion was eliminated in the round robin.

Novak Djokovic was attempting to equal Roger Federer's record of most ATP Finals titles (6), but he lost to Thiem in the semifinals. His loss guaranteed a maiden ATP Finals winner for the fifth consecutive year. Rafael Nadal was attempting to become only the second male player (after Andre Agassi) to complete the career Super Slam, but he lost to Medvedev in the semifinals.[6] Despite qualifying with the world No. 5 ranking, Federer was absent due to a knee injury.[7][8]

Andrey Rublev and Diego Schwartzman made their debuts at the event.
