ATP executive chairman Chris Kermode confirmed Wednesday that the annual event will move from the 02 Arena in London, England to Pala Alpitour stadium in Turin, Italy from 2021 to 2025.

“Our congratulations to Turin on putting together such a comprehensive and impressive bid. Italy provides us with one of the strongest and most established tennis markets in Europe and has a proven track record for hosting world class tennis events with the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome, as well as the Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan.” said Kermode.

“We’re delighted to expand on our successful partnership with the FIT and Sport e Salute SpA and we look forward to bringing the ATP’s flagship season-ending event to tennis’s growing fanbase in Italy for the first time.”

Turin reportedly beat out other major cities on the shortlist including Manchester, England, Singapore and Tokyo, Japan.

London had been the host of the season-ending tournament since 2009.

The trade rumours can be put to rest, because Bradley Beal will be staying in the nation’s capital for a little while longer.

The Washington Wizards announced Thursday that they have signed star guard Bradley Beal to a two-year, $72 million max contract extension that includes a player option for the 2022/2023 season. The deal also has a 15% trade kicker, and a no-trade clause during the regular season.

The 26-year old still has two years remaining on his current contract, so the total value of his two deals combined is close to $130 million over a span of four years.

Beal, who was selected third overall in the 2012 NBA Draft, has averaged 19.8 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 3.1 assists in seven seasons and 488 regular season games.

He averaged a career-high 25.6 points last season on a 47.5 field goal percentage.
