STARNBERG, September 20, 2023

After four years away, the ATP Tour returns to China this week with an ATP 250 doubleheader, while Team World and Team Europe do battle in Vancouver at the sixth edition of the Laver Cup.

Zverev top seed in Chengdu

Alexander Zverev looks to continue his 2023 resurgence as the top seed at the Chengdu Open. The 26-year-old German reached the quarterfinals at the US Open and is now eighth in the Pepperstone ATP Live Race To Turin.

Lorenzo Musetti of Italy, Grigor Dimitrov from Bulgaria and Britain Daniel Evans round out the top four seeds in Chengdu.

Khachanov leads the field in Zhuhai

Andy Murray’s bid for his first tour-level title since 2019 takes him to the Huafa Properties Zhuhai Championships, where the Scot is seeded seventh.

Karen Khachanov of Russia is the top seed ahead of Cameron Norrie from Great Britain and German Jan-Lennard Struff, while #NextGenATP star Shang Juncheng leads a squad of four home favourites in the main draw.

Team World chases back-to-back Laver Cup triumphs

Can Team World back up its 2022 heroics in Vancouver? After notching a first Laver Cup triumph in London a year ago, Taylor Fritz from the United States and Canada’s own Felix Auger-Aliassime are among those hoping help seal back-to-back victories.

Bjorn Borg has plenty of Top 10 mettle within Team Europe, however, including Greek superstar Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev of Russia.
