Zverev has had a superb season, winning two titles, including Masters tournaments in Rome and Montreal, and climbing to number four in the rankings.
The atmosphere is amazing. I'll be ready for it
He joins Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in booking his place at the event, which begins on November 12, leaving five spots still up for grabs.

"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."
