ATP Tour – Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2021 final results

The top four seeds in Moscow, who have first-round byes, still have been fairly scarce.

In Antwerp, a popcorn match between the two rising young Italians – Jannik Sinner and Lorenzo Musetti in which Sinner, only slightly older, showed he’s a much more polished player at this early stage of both their careers.

As well, a return to the court from Xavier Malisse, now 41, for the first time since … 2013. And he and partner/pupil Lloyd Harris pulled out an impressive victory.
