Open Court

MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Tour – Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2023 final results

Novak Djokovic is back and ready to set foot on a court on American soil for the first time in … quite awhile. He only had to play one set, as his opponent retired.

Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsistipas and Toronto champion Jannik Sinner also saw their first action, with Sinner falling in his opener – not a shocking outcome, for players coming off a massive win just a couple of days before.

And Félix Auger-Aliassime, who took on Adrian Mannarino Tuesday night in singles, teamed up with him in doubles. But they’re out. And FAA looks to New York for a better outcome.
