Andy Murray was the defending champion, but did not qualify for the event this year due to injury. This was the first time since 2007 that Murray failed to qualify for the ATP finals.

Grigor Dimitrov won the title, defeating David Goffin in the final, 7–5, 4–6, 6–3. Dimitrov became the first debutant to win the season-ending championship since Àlex Corretja in 1998. For the first time since 2008, two first-time finalists played for the title in the year-end event.[1][2]

Of the nine participants in 2016, only Marin Čilić, Dominic Thiem and Goffin played again this year (Stan Wawrinka qualified but could not participate due to injury). Additionally, former World No. 1 and five-time ATP Finals champion Novak Djokovic failed to qualify for the first time since 2006, having prematurely ended his season due to an elbow injury.

The top two seeds were Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, neither of whom played in 2016. Nadal withdrew from the tournament after his first match due to a knee injury.[3] Federer participated in the ATP year-end championships for a record-extending 15th time but lost in the semi-final to Goffin.[4] Goffin became only the fifth player in history to defeat both Nadal and Federer in the same tournament, and the third to do so in the ATP Finals after Nikolay Davydenko in 2009 and Novak Djokovic in 2013 and 2015.

Alexander Zverev, Dimitrov, Jack Sock and Pablo Carreño Busta (as an alternative replacing Nadal) made their debuts in the event. Goffin made his debut as a direct qualifier, after playing one match as an alternative in 2016.[5]
