Regulars and former participants like last year’s champion Andy Murray, five-time winner Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka, Milos Raonic and Kei Nishikori were all absent from the ATP Finals this year as they all ended their seasons early due to injury.

While the 2017 season finale produced some great matches, and gave us a first-time champion in Grigor Dimitrov, did the long list of absentees hurt the tournament?

Or was it exciting to see new faces break through?

In the video above, Spanish tennis journalist Marta Mateo and I discuss the impact these absences have had on the 2017 ATP Finals. We also look ahead to next season and try and figure out who will be the top candidates for next year’s finale.
