MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Tour – Wednesday, Sept, 20, 2023 final results

ATP tennis is back in China for the first time in four years, with the first week featuring a pair of 250 events in Zhuhai and Chengdu.

Some of the top players are planning to make their way there – including players like Andy Murray, fresh off their Davis Cup triumphs last weekend.

In the meantime, the Australians did pretty well overall in qualifying both in Zhuhai and Chengdu.

(Chengdu and Zhuhai are both 12 hours ahead of EDT)
