The 2023 Shanghai Masters will be an absolute blockbuster which will run between October 4th to 15th, and feature an expanded draw size of 96 singles players.

With the ATP entering the final month of the regular tennis calendar, this prestigious event will be the penultimate Masters 1000 stop before the men's stars head to Europe. It will be the 12th edition of the event and the first since 2019.

Daniil Medvedev is the tournament's defending champion and the ATP's hard-court master in 2023, winning the most matches on the surface by any player. The Russian has plenty of challengers including World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and two-time Grand Slam champion Carlos Alcaraz.

Jannik Sinner, who recently broke his duck at Masters 1000 level, will be a perennial danger too, as are Stefanos Tsitsipas, Holger Rune, and Andrey Rublev. Each of the world's Top 10 players has won at least one title in 2023, so we should expect a lot of high-octane tennis during the two weeks.

Earlier this year the tournament extended its partnership with Swiss watch manufacturer Rolex for another 10 years, the main sponsors, and this is reflected in the prize money for this year's event which stands at a whopping $8,800,000, an increment of 5.7% from 2019.

This will be fairly distributed among all the players who compete during the 12-day event. The champion will get marginally lower prize money this year than four years ago, with the lesser-ranked and less successful players during the tournament getting a slight increase in compensation.

Players who lose in the first round get at least 10 points, and a generous $18,660 in their bank accounts. Progressing further, will net players $30,885 and 25 points. Those who win two matches but stumble in the third will still part away with $55,770 and 45 potentially valuable points.

With an expanded draw size, it means we'll have fourth-round matches in Shanghai for the first time. Those players who make it to this end and lose will make a fortune of $96,955 and 90 points. All four losing quarterfinalists will make six figures worth $184,465 and 180 points each.

Semifinalists will go home with a cool $352,635 and 360 points, while the finalist will earn $662,360 and 600 points. The champion will get the biggest slice in prize money among all players - a hefty $1,262,220, and 1,000 ranking points.
