MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Tour – Saturday, Sept. 23, 2023 final results

The top three seeds are in action in Chengdu – including No. 3 Grigor Dimitrov, who got carried over from Friday. No. 1 seed in Alexander Zverev; No. 2 is Lorenzo Musetti. All moved on.

In Zhuhai, Andy Murray looked for a quarterfinal berth but had a tough potential tussle with Russia’s Aslan Karatsev, and bowed out.

No. 2 Cameron Norrie and No. 4 seed Sebastian Korda played their first matches, after byes in the first round. And did get through.

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