MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ATP Tour – Friday, Oct. 20, 2023 final results

Canadian Félix Auger-Aliassime was looking for his first semifinal since Doha, in February, where he had a first-round bye and lost to Daniil Medvedev.

He got through his opener, and looked much better than that in the second round against Sebastian Ofner of Austria to get to the final eight in Tokyo. But that’s where it ended, against American qualifier Marcos Giron

Ben Shelton wins the battle of the Americans against Tommy Paul, and No. 4 seed Tommy Paul is out, too. So there will be an unseeded winner in Tokyo this year.

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