4th straight year of a first-time finalist winning the ATP Finals.

Thiem would appear more deserving. He won 3 500s, IW and the Austrian Open this year, as well as losing the French Open final.

Still a little hot-and-cold week-to-week (e.g. only 1 slam match win this year outside the FO), but when he goes deep into a tournament he is worthy of his ranking.

Tsitsipas entered 2018 as World no.91 without a slam match win to his name, so winning the ATP Finals the following year would underline an exhilarating rise for him as well.

If I was a match fixer then Bernie would be my #1 player to try and turn. No more TA support, sponsors dropped off, lives the high life and with his results dropping off he doesn't have the money coming in. People don't even blink when he retires or loses to someone he shouldn't. Perfect storm.
Bernie wouldn't go for it I reckon, too scared of what Dad will do if he finds out

The last 3 winners are all slamless (without even a slam final).

In recent decades, Davydenko is the only other winner who'd never previously made a slam final (he deserved the 2005 FO final though).
