ATP Bangkok Tournament Moves to Shenzhen, China


(November 21, 2013) The ATP Board of Directors has approved the relocation of the World Tour 250 event from Bangkok to Shenzhen, China. The tournament will take place September 22-28 at the Shenzhen Longgang Sports Center with more than 20 outdoor match courts.

Alison Lee, ATP executive vice president,on the move: “China has long been a growing market for men’s professional tennis and we’re delighted to strengthen our presence in the region through the addition of this ATP World Tour 250 tournament in Shenzhen. The opportunities for growth in China continue to abound, and we look forward to working with the tournament organizers in delivering a first-class event in 2014. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have supported the Thailand Open in Bangkok over the past 11 years.”
China thus becomes the first country outside the United States to host ATP World Tour 250, 500 and Masters 1000 tournaments.

A sharp decrease in attendance lead to the relocation of the event since the 2007 retirement of Thailand’s Paradorn Srichaphan

Gael Monfils Knocks Roger Federer Out of Shanghai Masters

Federer 2

(October 10, 2013) Fifth seed Roger Federer was handed another early round loss, this one coming from Gael Monfils in the third round of the Shanghai Masters on Thursday a 6-4, 6-7(5), 6-3. For the Frenchman, it’s his second win over the 17-time major champion. He is now 2-6 versus Federer.

It was Federer’s first tournament since losing in the fourth round of the US Open to Tommy Haas. Federer stands at No. 7 in the race to London for the ATP World Tour Finals.

The 32-year-old Federer rebounded from 3-5 in the second set and then went on to take the tiebreak to send the match into a third set.

Monfils went up an early break in the third set and was a point away from a 5-1 lead, but the Swiss held to make it 2-4. Monfils was dominant on his serve the rest of the way and closed out the match.

“It’s a good win for me,” Monfils said post-match “I feel a bit sorry for him because I know he’s running for London. But it’s tennis. He’s going to have more opportunity (in) those weeks coming up.”

Monfils will face world No. 2 Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals. Djokovic dismissed Fabio Fognini 6-3, 6-3.

Sixth seed Juan Martin Del Potro advanced to the quarterfinals after Tommy Haas withdrew with an injured back.  Jo-Wilfried Tsonga also advanced beating Kei Nishikori 7-6(5) 6-0.

Notes From Behind the Wall at the 2013 China Open


By Abigail Hinto


(October 2, 2013) BEIJING – Some random observations from around the grounds on the third day of the China Open.


-  The rain yesterday seemed to have cleared the atmosphere of smog and haze.  We finally had clear blue skies and the air quality index has vastly improved to a “Good” 60 today from an “Unhealthy” 190 reading last Monday.


Fabio Fognini

Fabio Fognini

-  First up on center court was the steady Lleyton Hewitt versus the mercurial Fabio Fognini.  But we all know steady Hewitt is way past his prime and it was error after error from him in this 2nd round match.  Hewitt didn’t give the bad side of Fognini enough time to show up as he lost 6-0, 6-1 in less than an hour.

Robredo Dimitrov

Robredo and Dimitrov

-  It would no doubt be a great achievement for Fernando Verdasco if he qualifies again for the ATP World Tour Finals, although in doubles this time.  He and his partner David Marrero, currently in 8th place in the race to London took a step in the right direction winning their first round match against the team of Tommy Robredo and Grigor Dimitrov 7-5, 6-7 (5), 10-7.  It was a match heavily dominated by the serve with the only break happening in the 11th game in the first set.  That’s when Verdasco was able to use his forehand to get the upper hand in what little rallies the match the produced.  Next up for them, the winner of the Nestor/Paes match.


-  We’ve long talked about Rafael Nadal shorts from when he first came out wearing what has become his signature piratas, to this year when he started sporting shorter shorts.  But let’s acknowledge Tommy Robredo who has been wearing short shorts way before Nadal did.  And today, the they looked to be especially shorter.




-  Kunlun, the water sponsor of China Open fills their water bottles to the brim that you often end up spilling water on yourself every time you open them.  I keep forgetting about this tiny little fact that I have spilled on myself several times already.  I’ve seen the same thing happen to Nadal’s physiotherapist.  Today, it was Grigor Dimitrov’s turn to suffer at the hands of these water bottles.


- There have been several players this year who are having a successful comeback from serious injury.  Of course, Rafael Nadal has had the highest profile of them all, but both Tommy Robredo and Flavia Pennetta also had a great tournament at the US Open among others and have seen their rankings go back up.  Another player on the upward trail in her comeback bid is Andrea Petkovic who has already logged in two quality three-set wins here first against Victoria Azarenka and Tuesday against Svetlana Kuznetsova.  But the process of returning from injury is never easy and Petkovic shared a bit of her own experience about it after being off the tour for a year and a half and undergoing two surgeries.  She says the most frustrating part is thinking the worst part was the injury but turns out it’s not and it was losing her feeling for the ball on the court and not moving as well anymore.  But through persistence and hard work she’s once again starting to play well and finally getting the good results to go with it.

Notes From Behind the Wall at the 2013 China Open


by Abigail Hinto

(September 30, 2013) BEIJING – Notes from Behind the Wall is back for the 2013 edition of the China Open.  The wall is proving to be a tough barrier to our dispatches with the Wi-Fi not working at the media center and the VPN not connecting on my laptop.  But we’re persistent, and we will manage.


- First up, the ever persistent haze and smog.  Were we just lucky last year when the whole tournament made it through with mostly clear skies?  Flying in on Monday, I thought I was arriving in Beijing at dawn and not at high Noon.  Lights were already turned on for the courts by 3:30pm.  Pictures looked like stills for some horror movies.  The app for Beijing’s air quality shows that today’s is “Unhealthy.”  I can only feel sorry for the players as they play through this condition.



- Rafael Nadal had a scheduled appearance at the booth of Kunlun, the water sponsor.  When we found out he hadn’t arrived yet at the scheduled hour, we decided we had time to check it out.  As we made it to the sponsors area, we didn’t even have to search for the booth of Kunlun, as slowly approaching us were a mob of people and in the middle of it all was Nadal himself.  It felt like a stampede of wildebeests was coming straight at you and you only had a second to get out of the way.


Serena Williams China Open doubles

-  Top singles players nowadays usually play doubles outside the grand slams to maybe get in a match before their singles matches or have “practice matches” to help them with their games.  They try to have more fun and are less intense on the court.  But on Monday, at the Williams/Williams- Huber/Chan match, Serena Williams and to a lesser extent, Venus Williams showed that they’re not taking this match lightly.  Serena was definitely the more intense player, constantly fist-pumping and urging on Venus.  And the fans were responding to them with shouts of “C’mon, Serena!” and “C’mon, Venus!”


But the star of the match turned out to be Hao-Ching Chan.  She showed from the start she was never intimidated and was never afraid.  And as she started to match the Williams’ intensity with her own, grunting along in her high-pitched voice, going toe-to-toe in the baseline exchanges and poaching at the net for volley winners, she turned the fans to her side.  As much as she was fighting hard out there, she was showing that she was enjoying the battle too, flashing smiles every time she comes out on top.  And the crowd loved it and was treated to a competitive and exciting match.  Huber/Chan eventually saved match points, and another volley winner from Chan in turn set up match point for her team which they eventually converted as Serena served a double fault.  An unfortunate end (for Serena’s racquet as well – chucked and thrown away after the double fault) to an otherwise high quality, high intensity doubles match – 6-7 (3), 6-4, 11-9.  The fans left having discovered a player to root for in Hao-Ching Chan.
