In a statement, the Tournament Director Michael Luevano said: “Every year at the Rolex Shanghai Masters we look to make enhancements and to give Shanghai’s great tennis fans and all those followers of this sport, different opportunities to see their favorite players in action.

This year we are excited to introduce day and night sessions to the Rolex Shanghai Masters schedule. This has been under consideration for some time. It is something that works very successfully around the world at many of the biggest tournaments like the US Open, the Australian Open, the ATP Finals and more.

We have one of the best tennis facilities in the world and we want to showcase it to more fans and take things to another level with the excitement of night matches. We look forward to all our guests enjoying the new scheduling format”.Speaking to Tennis World USA, the Toronto Rogers Cup Tournament Director Karl Hale made a comparison between Stefanos Tsitsipas and Roger Federer. The Greek upset the Swiss earlier this year in the Australian Open. "I have watched him since he was 16 years old, I know his father.

He is so talented, he is a genius. He is very similar to Roger, he has a goos balance on and off the court. He needs to get a bit stronger but he will definitely win some Grand Slams before his career is over and he will at least crack the top 3 rankings because you never know is someone can really become No.

1," said Hale. On Nick Kyrgios, Hale added: "Nick has one of top five serves in the world, that's what makes him stay on top 100 rankings. He has an incredibile talent, but we hope he gets more disciplined in order to achieve his potential and i hope he does that before it's not too late.
