MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Tour – Thursday, Sept. 28, 2023 final results

It’s early days for Beijing and Astana – even though it’s Thursday.

So not many seeds so far, although No. 6 Adrian Mannarino and No. 8 Stan Wawrinka were on the sked in Astana on Thursday.

Andy Murray vs. Alex de Minaur is a first-round match in Beijing Thursday. And that’s a tough draw for both. And what a tough match for both.

(Beijing is 12 hours ahead of EDT; Astana is 10 hours ahead)
