The ATP Zhuhai Open 2021 is an upcoming men’s professional tennis tournament that will be a part of the ATP World Tour 250 Series. It will be replacing the ATP Shenzhen Open and is typically played in the same week as the Chengdu Open on hard courts. In this article, we will give you the latest information on how to watch the ATP Zhuhai Open live streaming online.
The event will take place at the Hengqin International Tennis Center in Zhuhai – the same venue that has been hosting three major tournaments over the years – the WTA Elite Trophy, the Zhuhai Challenger and the Zhuhai ITF Women’s Circuit.
It goes without saying that the tennis scene in Zhuhai is wonderful with fans flocking to the stadium for every major tennis tournament.
The ATP Zhuhai Open usually marks the start of the Asian leg of the ATP World Tour that will ultimately culminate with the Shanghai Masters.
Over the years, its predecessor – the Shenzhen Open, has featured many stars like Andy Murray, David Goffin, and Tomas Berdych. With Zhuhai being a premier tourist destination in China, we can expect the organizers to rope in top players for the 2021 edition as well.

What Happened at the 2020 Zhuhai Championships?
The 2020 Zhuhai Championships was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Alex de Minaur overcame the odds and some solid players in the draw to win the first ever edition of the Zhuhai Open in 2019. He defeated Adrian Mannarino 7-6, 6-4 to lift the trophy. Earlier, de Minaur had gotten past the second seeded Roberto Bautista Agut in the semifinal as well.
Mannarino’s journey to the final saw him overcome the top seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas in round two after the Greek withdrew from the tournament in the third set of that match. Both, third seeded Gael Monfils and fourth seeded Borna Coric made it to the quarterfinals.
In the 2018 ATP Shenzhen, the tournament that was replaced by the Zhuhai Championships, Andy Murray started the event as a wildcard along with the likes of David Goffin, Fernando Verdasco, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Borna Coric, and Denis Shapovalov. Needless to mention, the pool was full of young players, all of whom were eager to make an impression on the ATP Tour.
Despite the presence of these big guns, the event was ultimately won by the young Japanese qualifier Yoshihito Nishioka, who defeated the likes of Fernando Verdasco, Shapovalov, Denis Kudla, and Pierre-Hughes Herbert to win the title.
As for Murray, he made it as far as the quarterfinal before losing to Verdasco. Similarly, Coric was defeated in his opening match by Cameron Norrie.
