Event Information:

The Shanghai Rolex Masters (formally the Shanghai ATP Masters 1000 presented by Rolex) is a professional tennis tournament played on outdoor hard courts. It is currently part of the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) World Tour. It will be held annually in October at the Qizhong Forest Sports City Arena in Shanghai, People's Republic of China.

 

All matches are played in outdoor conditions for the first time at the Qizhong Arena, after the venue held the Tennis Masters Cup indoors four times from 2005 to 2008. The surface is a hard court one, specifically DecoTurf.

The venue was originally built in 2004 and 2005 to host the Tennis Masters Cup, after the ATP awarded the tournament to Shanghai for a three-years contract (2005-2007), later extended to a fourth year. The site was conceived to become the biggest tennis venue in Asia, with a 15,000-seats main stadium, featuring a magnolia-shaped retractable roof, and twenty additional indoor and outdoor courts (the facility was eventually surpassed by the Olympic Green Tennis Center, created for the 2008 Summer Olympics, as the largest Asian tennis complex).

In preparation of the first edition of the Shanghai ATP Masters 1000, it was decided that the venue would be expanded, with several new stadiums and courts to be constructed by August 2009, including a Grand Stand Court 2, with a seating capacity of 5,000 spectactors, and a Grand Stand Court 3, with a seating capacity of 3,000 spectators

Playing in 2010: Rafael Nadal Novak Djokovic Roger Federer Andy Murray Robin Soderling Nikolay Davydenko Tomas Berdych Fernando Verdasco.
