Jannik Sinner defeated Alex de Minaur in the final 4–2, 4–1, 4–2 to win the 2019 Next Generation ATP tennis final. Stefanos Tsitsipas was the defending champion, but decided to withdraw as he had also qualified for the 2019 ATP Finals. Sinner was also the first Italian wildcard in the history of the tournament to win a match, with both Gianluigi Quinzi and Liam Caruana going winless at the 2017 and 2018 events, respectively.

The 2019 edition was a men's exhibition tennis tournament played in Milan, Italy, from 5 to 9 November 2019.[1][2][3] It was the season-ending event for the best singles players that are age 21 and under on the 2019 ATP Tour. This is the first year that it was played at the PalaLido Allianz Cloud, after two years at Fiera Milano.[1]

Qualified players

In September, during the US Open, defending champion Stefanos Tsitsipas became the first player to qualify.[4] In October, he announced his withdrawal, having qualified for the 2019 ATP Finals.[5]

On 16 September, Jannik Sinner was announced as the Italian wild card.[6]

On 9 October, Félix Auger-Aliassime became the second player to qualify.[7]

On 16 October, Alex de Minaur qualified for the second consecutive year, having been the runner-up in 2018.[5]

Between 21 and 23 of October, Frances Tiafoe, Casper Ruud, Miomir Kecmanović and Ugo Humbert all qualified.[8] Mikael Ymer then qualified the following day after Felix Auger-Aliassime withdrew due to injury. Denis Shapovalov also withdrew on 1 November, which meant Alejandro Davidovich Fokina qualified.

Qualification

The top seven players in the ATP Race to Milan qualified. The eighth spot was reserved for an Italian wild card, as in the past two editions. Eligible players had to be 21 or under at the start of the year (born in 1998 or later for 2019 edition).[9]

  Players in gold have qualified.
  Players in dark gold qualified, but withdrew.
