MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Tour – Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2023 final results

Americans Taylor Fritz, Frances Tiafoe and Ben Shelton joined their Laver Cup teammate Tommy Paul in the Tokyo action, after Paul was successfully through on Monday.

The three haven’t had a great swing, so the quick courts of Tokyo are the perfect place to lay down some results before coming home.

In Stockholm, there was Stan Wawrinka.

In Antwerp, the Tsitsipas brothers in doubles, along with Dominic Thiem, Richard Gasquet and a number of seeded South Americans.

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