Only seven days until Rolex Shanghai Masters
returns to Shanghai. It's a big deal - being the eighth tournament of nine in the ATP world Tour Masters 1000 and the only tournament of its kind outside of North America and Europe. Who's on the court this year? The usual suspects: 20-time Grand Slam champ Roger Federer, 4 time Shanghai winner and current world number one Novak Djokovic and world number two Rafael Nadal, as well as freshly-minted world number 4 Daniil Medvedev. Andy Murray took a wildcard. Nick Kyrgios withdrew this year, and the umpire breathes a sigh of relief. It’s happening at the Qizhong Forest Sports City Tennis Center
, in Minhang District, about 35km away from the city center. Tickets are officially sold out (except for some tickets on our Buy&Sell section
), but if you got them how're you supposed to get there?
Option 1: Take Metro Line 1 to its final stop Xinzhuang Station, then take Line 5 to Zhuanqiao Station. From Zhuangqiao Station it’s only a 10min Didi ride to the stadium.
Option 2: Take the shuttle bus from the South Square of Xinzhuang Station. It gets you to the stadium in about 45 minutes. The shuttle service runs from 11am to 7pm and costs 2rmb, except for Saturday October 5 and Sunday October 13, when the shuttle bus only runs until 4pm.
There are official shuttles buses back to Xujiahui from 9pm until after the last match for 10rmb.
Schedule provided by the event organizers and may change.
Happy Grand Slamming!
