Dominic Thiem has qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals for the second successive year.
The world No 7 from Austria joins Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Alexander Zverev at the season-ending tournament to be held 12-19 November at London's O2 Arena.
Thiem, 24, qualified as a result of Friday's quarter-finals at the Shanghai Masters, leaving four places up for grabs with just four weeks to go until the prestigious event.
"I am very proud to have qualified again this year," Thiem told the official ATP Tour website. "It is not easy to qualify once but even more so to repeat the following year. I look forward to competing with the best players in the world at The O2."
Thiem is one of the most-travelled players on the ATP World Tour having competing in 24 tournaments and lifted the Rio Open title earlier this year.
Gigor Dimitrov, Marin Cilic, David Goffin and Pablo Carreno Busta currently occupy the last four remaining spots with Sam Querrey and Kevin Anderson close behind the Spaniard.
We will have all the action from the conclusion of 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.
