Played at the same time as the WTA Beijing Premier Mandatory and also on the same arena, the ATP Beijing event is, for now, an ATP 500 tournament. However, every year, top players attended the tournament, which is just one week away from the Shanghai Masters. Andy Murray, defending champion in 2016, will not be present at the start of the 2017 edition.

Rafael Nadal is the top seed in 2017 and also the big favourite. He almost lost in the first round to Lucas Pouille, but managed to save two match points and advanced into the second. Another player who will have to defend a lot of points here is Grigor Dimitrov, last year's finalist, who has a very difficult task against Del Potro in the second round. Nick Kyrgios seems to be back on form (and also better prepared physically), so the Aussie is also a contender for the title.
Novak Djokovic, who dominated the tournament in the last years by winning six titles, is absent and also is Murray, the defending champion.
