2018 Shanghai Masters

7 Oct 2018 - 14 Oct 2018

The Shanghai Masters is one of nine Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Masters 1000-point tournaments. It is the only 1000-point tournament outside North America and Europe.


The annual hard court tournament has been played since 2009 and was named the ATP Masters 1000 Tournament of the Year for five consecutive editions from 2009 to 2013. The tournament committee designed three trophies among which they finalized one trophy through online voting. The 2018 Shanghai Masters will be the 10th edition of the event.


About

The 2018 Shanghai Masters will be held from October 7 to October 14 at the Qi Zhong Tennis Centre of Minhang District, Shanghai. The organisers also designed a new logo to celebrate the occasion. Fifty-six singles players and 24 doubles teams will be contesting in the tournament. The total prize money of the tournament is $7,655,640.


Defending Champions

At 2017 Shanghai Masters, Roger Federer gave Rafael Nadal absolutely no chance in the final to capture his second Shanghai Masters titles. The Swiss took only 72 minutes to get past Nadal in 6-4,6-3 for his fifth successive victory over the Spaniard.


In the Men’s doubles, Henri Kontinen and John Peers spent only 69 minutes on the court before sealing the final against Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo. The top seed defeated the second seed 6-4, 6-2 to lift the title.


Favourites

Although the players are yet to confirm their participation in Shanghai, most of the top players are likely to play in the 1000-point tournament.


Despite failing to replicate last year’s sublime performance, Federer will be one of the favourites to win the title. Rafael Nadal will also like to break the jinx of two finals winning the title for the first time in Shanghai


With Novak Djokovic coming back to his best winning the 2018 Wimbledon and US Open in a grand way, the Serbian will also be one of the contenders for the title.


In the Men’s doubles, the top-ranked teams are likely to contest in the tournament. After Bob Bryan underwent a hip surgery which ended his season, the current World No. 1 Mike Bryan is likely to play in the tournament with Jack Sock. However, it brings down the American's chance of winning the title considering his poor form with other partners.


Although Mate Pavić/Oliver Marach and Henri Kontinen/John Peers have not been in their best of form, they will chase the title along with Indian Wells champion John Isner vs Jack Sock.
