Felix, Isner Kick Off Asian Swing In Chengdu; When Is The Draw & More
American John Isner and #NextGenATP star Felix Auger-Aliassime headline the field at the fourth edition of the Chengdu Open as the three-week Asian swing gets underway with a pair of ATP 250 tennis tournaments in China.
Isner, 34, will be making his debut in Chengdu while the 19-year-old Auger-Aliassime returns for his second straight appearance. Last year, the teenager reached his first tour-level quarter-final here as a lucky loser, falling to eventual champion Bernard Tomic. Auger-Aliassime will be joined in Chengdu by fellow Canadian Denis Shapovalov. Auger-Aliassime and Shapovalov are respectively second and fourth in the ATP Race To Milan.
