Andy Murray finds out first-round opponent for Zhuhai Championships
Andy Murray and Tennys Sandgren will meet in an ATP Tour match for the second time in just over a month as they will face each other in the first round of the Zhuhai Championships.
The pair also met in the opening round of the Winston-Salem Open in August and it was American Sandgren who came out on top as he won 7-6(8), 7-5.
After that defeat Murray took a step down to the ATP Challenger Tour as he competed in the Rafa Nadal Open, but he is all set for full-on assault on the ATP Tour again as he will play in Beijing, Shanghai and Antwerp after the China event.
The former world No 1 is in the bottom half of the draw and he could face seventh seed Alex de Minaur, who is up against fellow Australian John Millman first up, in the second round.
Fourth seed Borna Coric could be a quarter-final opponent while second seed Roberto Bautista Agut or Nick Kyrgios could await in the semi-finals.
In the top half, top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas has a bye in the first round and he could meet Frenchman Adrian Mannarino or Chinese wildcard Ze Zhang in the second round.
Third seed Gael Monfils and fifth seed Lucas Pouille are the other danger men in the half.
