Alexander Zverev faced a challenging test against Pavel Kotov in the ATP Chengdu’s second round, emerging victorious after a first-round bye. His 17-3 opening-round record for the year is impressive, considering he missed the last six months of 2022 due to injury, starting 2023 with fitness and confidence concerns. Despite struggles against players like Juan Pablo Varillas, Michael Mmoh, and Marc-Andrea Huesler during this period, Zverev remarkably re-entered the top 10 rankings. He reached eight quarterfinals in 19 tournaments (excluding Chengdu), including Grand Slam appearances at the French Open and US Open, with a title victory in Hamburg. His track record in Asia includes winning the Tokyo Olympics gold medal in 2021 and finishing as the Shanghai Masters runner-up in 2019.

Miomir Kecmanovic hasn’t delivered any standout performances but has made it to the quarterfinals quite comfortably, largely due to a favorable draw. He had convincing wins in the early rounds, losing only five games against the 346th-ranked Benjamin Lock in the first round and six games against Corentin Moutet, who is still in the process of making a comeback. In 2023, the Serbian still holds a negative win-loss record and has faced more losses than wins in opening-round matches. However, one area where he has excelled is turning good starts into quarterfinal appearances or better. He holds a solid 4-2 win-loss record in quarterfinal matches this year and has reached the runner-up position twice, in Delray Beach and Estoril.
