Men's tennis tournaments 2011

In the men's game, 2011 has been Novak Djokovic's year. Tennis tournaments have come and gone and the powerful Serbian has walked away with three Grand Slam titles - Australian Open, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open - five Masters Series events, and a clean sweep of matches against world number two, Rafael Nadal.

A back injury has forced Djokovic's withdrawal from the China Open starting on October 2; Andy Roddick, Gael Monfils and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga are in the hat for Beijing. On the same day, the Rakuten Open Tennis Championships kicks off in Japan, with Andy Murry, Rafael Nadal and Mardy Fish competing at the Ariake Colosseum.

It remains to be seen if Djokovic will recover in time for the hotly anticipated Shanghai Rolex Masters on October 9 - the largest remaining purse of the season at $3,240,000, $620,000 of which goes to the winner. If he recovers in time, he'll join Nadal, David Ferrer and last year's winner and current world number four Andy Murray in China.

The tour then moves to Sweden for the Stockholm Open on October 17, which is also the date for the start of the Kremlin Cup in Moscow.
