ATP Beijing Results & Quick Hits

  • Kyle Edmund picked up one of the best wins of his career, coming through a sticky three setter with the vastly more experienced Roberto Bautista Agut. He reaches his third ATP quarter-final of the year and his second in a row against Andy Murray (lost to him at Queen’s).
  • Murray eased into the quarter-finals in a break-ridden second round match against Andrey Kuznetsov – with this win he became ATP World Tour match wins leader this season
  • Grigor Dimitrov continued a more settled late season with a tough fight over Steve Johnson while it was not a good day for the USA as Jack Sock lost to Alexander Zverev and Sam Querrey bowed out to eighth seed Richard Gasquet.

WTA Beijing Results & Quick Hits

  • World No. 1 Angelique Kerber put on a real show against Barbora Strycova – the Czech now trails Kerber 6-1 but forced Kerber to be at her defensive best as she edged her in straight sets.
  • No home-crowd joy for Peng Shuai – troubled with injury last week, she was edged out by Caroline Garcia in three sets with a deciding tie-break.
  • The Road to Singapore saw a massive tussle between Madison Keys currently in the final spot and 10th placed Svetlana Kuznetsova. Keys – top of the WTA Elite Trophy leader-board stretched away from Carla Suárez Navarro & Kuznetsova (9th & 10th).
  • Johanna Konta (11th in the Race) has a very outside chance of making the Singapore line-up. However she has No. 5 seed Karolina Pliskova next – and has yet to beat her.
  • Defending champion Garbiñe Muguruza came unstuck against the in-form Petra Kvitova who has hit high gear. She should still be safe for the WTA Finals but another win for Kvitova could catapult last year’s finalist into the running.

ATP Tokyo Results & Quick Hits

  • Bad news for home favourite and top seed Kei Nishikori – he retired with a gluts injury in his second round match against Portugal’s Joao Sousa. The two-time champion was the only Japanese player left in the draw after his compatriots (all wildcards) exited in the first round.
  • Also gone is third seed Tomas Berdych. The Czech missed the US Open with appendicitis after winning his first ATP title of the season in Shenzhen at the weekend.
  • Fourth seed Marin Cilic escaped top-seed-it is as he could now potentially push Berdych further down the Race to London, especially if he goes on to win the tournament.
