Nadal Storms To 75th Career Title In Beijing

If Rafael Nadal is to finish as the year-end No. 1 for a fourth time, his recent performances on hard courts will be of critical importance.

Nadal extended his win streak to 12 straight with the China Open title on Sunday, defeating Nick Kyrgios6-2, 6-1. The Spaniard, who remains undefeated since returning to World No. 1 on 21 August, tightened his grip on the top spot in the Emirates ATP Race To London. Now up to 2,360 points over Roger Federer, he has put himself in prime position to cap his 2017 campaign in No. 1 fashion.

Victory in Beijing gives Nadal his 75th career crown, moving to within two titles of John McEnroe for fourth on the Open Era list. It was his second triumph in the Chinese capital, having previously defeated Guillermo Coria for the 2005 trophy.

Championships Draws & Times

This year, we are using a dedicated page on our web site to publish our draws, and any revisions to draws, results and playing times as the championships progress.

Play is scheduled to start 11:30a Saturday October 14 and continue through the following weekend October 21/22.

We had insufficient entries for the A Women’s Singles (combined into the Open Women’s Singles) and the Super Seniors Men’s Doubles (postponed until the Combined Events in February 2019).

Please note match times are subject to change depending on results and, of course, the weather!

Match play format is shown on each draw sheet.  For Open events, matches consist of two (2) tiebreaker sets with a super 10-point tiebreaker third set up to, and including, quarter finals. Thereafter, three tiebreaker sets with new balls provided for the third set.

It goes without saying that we expect everyone to uphold our traditions of being courteous to  fellow club members and to exhibit best behaviour during the championships.  Suffice to say, bad behaviour will NOT be rewarded by the referee under the Tennis Australia playing code of conduct — first infraction: warning, second infraction: loss of point, third: loss of game……..loss of match.

All draws, playing and court times have been posted. Any revisions will be posted on the web site so be sure to check back frequently.
