By John

Jannik Sinner beat Yoshihito Nishioka 6-2 6-0 and enters the quarterfinals of the ATP 500 tournament in Beijing. The Italian, number 7 in the world ranking, easily overtook the Japanese (38) and will now face the winner between the Dane Holger Rune (4) and the Bulgarian Grigory Dimitrov (19).

Musetti eliminated by Alcaraz

The Spaniard, number 2 in the ATP ranking, after beating the Italian (n.18) will face the Norwegian Casper Ruud (n.9) in the quarterfinals who overcame the Argentine Tomas Martin Etcheverry (31).

Paolini did well

Jasmine Paolini came from behind to beat Brazilian Beatriz Haddad Maia to reach the round of 32 of the women’s China Open. Italy defeated the number 15 seed in a comeback 3-6 6-4 6-4.
