Tiafoe, Norrie Matches Suspended Overnight Due To Shanghai Rain

Action continued under the roof inside Qizhong Forest Sports City Arena

Saturday’s play at the Rolex Shanghai Masters was disrupted after persistent rain forced matches on outside courts to be suspended at the ATP Masters 1000 event.

After a couple of short stoppages earlier in the day, play was halted just after 4 p.m. local time in China. The action continued under the retractable roof of the Qizhong Tennis Center’s Stadium Court, where Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Jannik Sinner and top seed Carlos Alcaraz claimed second-round victories. Taylor Fritz’s clash with Yosuke Watanuki is set to round out the day’s play.
