Dodig-Pavic are too good. Jeevan must have learnt a thing or two playing such a good team. This was indeed a good week for him and his partner.

Excellent week for Jeevan/Austin, who are becoming an effective ATP pair.
But the final was the easiest match Dodig/Pavic played all week. They were taken to STBs by Paes/Reyes-Varela, Mochanov/Zelenay, and Gonzalez/Qureishi in the previous three rounds.

Divij-Artem took advantage of a good draw to advance to the last-16 of the Shanghai Masters:

[R1] Divij Sharan/Artem Sitak (IND/NZL) d. WC-Mao-Xin Gong/Ze Zhang (CHN/CHN) 63 64

They play 3rd seeded Kubot/Melo next -- and the winner of that would meet Rohan/Roger (if the latter win their next 2 matches).

I think, this is Divij's first Masters tournament ... Good to see they took advantage of weaker opponents.

Wonderful to see Yuki back in action. And a pretty good draw; his opponent was the last man accepted into the draw, although Yuki is now ranked lower. If Yuki is back in real playing shape, he should win this on a hard court, but of course we have found that he takes 2-3 matches to get back in full form after a break.
