MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Tour – Friday, Sept. 22, 2023 final results

More players who’ve just flown in from parts beyond jump in to action in China on Friday.

That included Jan-Lennard Struff in Zhuhai, who played the UTS event at home in Frankfurt last weekend. He, and all the seeds in action, advanced.

In Chengdu, No. 4 seed Daniel Evans was in from Davis Cup, and No. 3 seed Grigor Dimitrov from the UTS event as well. Evans lost; Dimitrov didn’t get on court as the sked was curtailed because of weather.

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