Alexander Zverev admits he hasn't made a decision on whether or not he will play at the Next Gen ATP Finals with London his priority.
Zverev qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals at London's O2 for the first time but has also earned a place at the inaugural Next Gen Finals in Milan the previous week and must now decide whether to play in both.
Players are allowed to skip the Next Gen event, featuring the leading seven players of the year aged 21 and under plus one wild card, if they are in the field for the ATP Finals.
Zverev, who has enjoyed a superb season - winning two titles including Masters tournaments in Rome and Montreal - and climbing to No 4 in the rankings, said: "No, I haven't made a decision. This decision is something I'm going to talk with my whole team about.
"London is obviously the bigger event out of those two and if I have to choose one then it would be London."
The 20-year-old will be the youngest player to compete at the season-ending tournament since Juan Martin del Potro in 2008, a year before it moved to its current home at London's O2 Arena.
He has joined Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in booking his place at the event, which begins on November 12, leaving five spots still up for grabs.
Sky Sports Tennis will have all the action from the Shanghai Masters before we head to the Erste Bank Open and Swiss Indoors Basel and then the Paris Masters.
The Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan and season-ending extravaganza World Tour Finals at London's O2 in November end another memorable year which will be covered via our website www.skysports.com/tennis with live blogs and updates as the season reaches its climax.
