The 2023 ATP World Tour Finals are here. Can you believe the tennis season just went by like that? The tournament is underway already. So these are the live updated odds listed below on who has the chance to win the tournament and walk out with the year-end championship.
It is not a given that the best player in the world walks out with the championship. After a difficult three-match round-robin, the semifinals and finals are played on back-to-back days. Again, it is all about who you match up with in the semifinals. But whoever is playing the best will lift the year-end championship.
The semifinals are set after a gruelling Group Stage that saw the four best players in the world come through. Carlos Alcaraz defeated Daniil Medvedev in straight sets to secure his spot in the Final Four in his debut in the tournament. Meanwhile, World Number One Novak Djokovic needed help from Jannik Sinner after getting by Hubert Hurkacz in three sets.
Well, Sinner delivered and defeated Holger Rune in three sets to win the Green Group, as Alcaraz won the Red Group. Alexander Zverev had an outside shot to make semifinals but he needed help. As you can see, he did not get the help. You have to feel bad for a guy like Hurkacz, who played well against Djokovic, just imagine if Stefanos Tsitsipas pulled out sooner; maybe his odds might have gone up.
Entering the semifinals, Djokovic is still the favorite at +180. However, it is anyone’s tournament to win. Again, you never know what can happen in a best-of-three tournament. You need to be at your best every single match.
Let’s dive into the ATP World Tour Final semifinal action which continues on Saturday with the Final on Sunday.

2023 ATP World Tour Final Semifinal Odds
Novak Djokovic (-160) vs Carlos Alcaraz (+125)
Many people are hoping to see Carlos Alcaraz in the final as well against Novak Djokovic. Well, this rivalry will be renewed in the semifinals. These guys have played epic matches this year from the French Open to the Wimbledon Final to the Cincinnati Final; Alcaraz and Djokovic bring the best out in each other. This is as close to an even match as possible. Alcaraz is getting better and better with each match. At the same time, Djokovic has struggled in his last two matches. However, that does not mean a thing when it comes to this stage.
Djokovic will be a slight favorite in this match. However, the young Spaniard has been playing well, winning his last two matches in straight sets. This will be a tougher match for him. Expect this match to go the distance. No way this is a straight-sets match. Expect this to be a long match. Djokovic’s last two matches have been three sets not to mention he has been on court for nearly six hours over his last two matches.
Again this will be an excellent match and get headlines on the Marquee, but the second semifinal will be just as good.
Jannik Sinner (-160) vs Daniil Medvedev (+125)
While Alcaraz and Djokovic will get the headlines, the rivalry between Jannik Sinner and Daniil Medvedev has been just as good. Early in the season, Medvedev continued his domination over Sinner to 6-0 with wins in Rotterdam and Miami. However, Sinner finally broke the streak of losing by winning in Beijing and Vienna. It is crazy to think all those matchups came in finals. This is the first semifinal matchup of the year.
Medvedev had a strong performance in group play prior to his match against Alcaraz. Again, he lost 64 64, but a rally here or there and Medvedev could have won. This was similar to Medvedev’s straight sets win over Zverev. Sinner, on the other hand, like Djokovic, has played in back-to-back three-set matches. His win allowed Djokovic to get into the semifinals. Let’s see how much he has left in the tank against a very good player in Medvedev.
Expect both matches to go the distance. Both matches will be really good. Regardless of who makes the final, it will be a great culmination of the 2023 tennis season.
