As the 2023 ATP Masters 1000 series heads towards its conclusion as the penultimate event on the tour, the Rolex Shanghai Masters prepares to take place again live from Qizhong Forest Sports City Arena. The second-to-last event on the nine-competition circuit has been one of the most prestigious titles outside grand slams for years.

After three years on the sidelines due to the COVID-19 pandemic, fans will be eager to see some of the sport’s biggest stars take to the hard court in pursuit of glory, with every edition throwing up its share of thrilling encounters and nail-biting clashes.

But, there will be one major absentee from the draw. Four-time winner and world number one Novak Djokovic confirmed he will sit out this latest edition, leaving the door open for Carlos Alcaraz to potentially reclaim the top spot in the rankings ahead of the climactic Rolex Paris Masters and ATP Finals.
