The Shanghai Masters returns to the ATP Tour for the first time since 2019. Asia's only Masters 1000 tournament will be held from October 4-15, 2023.
Reigning Wimbledon champion Carlos Alcaraz headlines the draw as the top seed in World No. 1 Novak Djokovic's absence. The 20-year old will be making his debut at the venue. He won the Masters 1000 events in Madrid and Indian Wells earlier in the season and reached the final in Cincinnati.
Djokovic is the only player from the top 20 to not compete here, though he'll return to action at the Paris Masters. He's also the most successful player in the tournament's history, having gone all the way in Shanghai four times so far.
Daniil Medvedev is the defending champion from when the tournament was held back in 2019. The Russian is seeded second and will be eyeing a third Masters title this year following his triumphs in Miami and Rome.
The tournament is also crucial for players vying to seal their spots in the ATP Finals. With 1000 points up for grabs, contenders like Taylor Fritz, Holger Rune, Casper Ruud and Stefanos Tsitsipas need a good week here to make the cut for the year-end championships.
With the sport's leading stars in the mix this week, here's how one can keep up with all the action taking place at the Shanghai Masters:
