MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Tour – Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2022 final results

Last week’s winners and finalists get back at it today – although the long trip from Tel Aviv to Astana was probably made easier for Novak Djokovic and Marin Cilic by their private jet arrangements.

Djokovic breezed through; Cilic had to pull off a comeback.

For Denis Shapovalov and Yoshihito Nishioka, it was a much shorter hop from Seoul to Tokyo. And both played Wednesday (with Nishioka also playing doubles).

There was rain in Tokyo – the first two doubles matches on the second court were been moved indoors. Then two others, while Kokkinakis and Kyrgios were squeezed in on the main stadium, which No worries for the main has a roof.
