MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Tour – Monday, Oct. 16, 2023 final results

legends

No messing around at the Tokyo 500 – No. 3 seed Alexander Zverev, No. 5 Tommy Paul and No. 8 Félix Auger-Aliassime are all up on the first day.

The Canadian Auger-Aliassime managed a gritty win over Aussie Aussie Aleksandar Vukic.

It’s a good draw, but quality of draw hasn’t necessarily been a determining factor for FAA during these tough times. So good that he got through.

Also with the main draw getting under way : Antwerp and Stockholm.

(Tokyo is 13 hours ahead of EDT; Stockholm and Antwerp are six hours ahead).
