By Britwatch Team
Latest Tennis Results – Full main draw singles results from ATP and WTA tournaments this week, plus our quick hits of the day’s action.
ATP Shanghai Results & Quick Hits
- Second seed Andy Murray eased into the third round to get past Steve Johnson but there was no joy for Kyle Edmund – he came up against an efficient Stan Wawrinka, despite Edmund putting up a little resistance in the second set breaking back after dropping to a set and a break deficit.
- However it was not a good day for some of the seeds – Viktor Troicki beat Rafael Nadal for the first time in five previous attempts, with Tomas Berdych also bowing out at the hands of Marcel Granollers
- Perhaps most perplexing of all was the manner of Nick Kyrgios’ loss to Mischa Zverev. He appeared to not try, declaring himself not bothered (in slightly more colourful stylings) about closing out his season on a high at the World Tour Finals.
