MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

It’s finals day in Astana, while it’s semifinals day in Beijing as the Shanghai 96-draw has the final round of qualifying.

So it’s been a busy and kind of frantic period on the ATP Tour, with mid-week starts in tournaments and the expension of Beijing, which returns for the first time since 2019 (crazy to think about that, isn’t it?)

The semis lineup in Beijing had potential to be pretty great. But in the end, Daniil Medvedev and Jannik Sinner were straight-sets winner.

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