Thiem Seeks First Vienna Title; When Is The Draw & More
Dominic Thiem enjoyed a breakthrough this past summer, when he won his first title on home soil at the Generali Open in Kitzbuhel. He will look to continue his success in Austria at the Erste Bank Open, an ATP 500 tournament. Thiem, a winner of four tour-level titles this season, will be making his ninth appearance in Vienna, where he is a two-time quarter-finalist.
Matteo Berrettini, a recent semi-finalist in Shanghai, will attempt to strengthen his position in the top eight of the ATP Race to London with a strong showing in Vienna. Gael Monfils, Diego Schwartzman and Karen Khachanov, who trail Berrettini by less than 1,000 points in the standings, will look to gain valuable Race points in order to boost their Nitto ATP Finals hopes.
The field also includes Next Gen ATP Finals qualifiers Felix Auger-Aliassime and Denis Shapovalov, former World No. 3 Grigor Dimitrov and 2011 champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Did You Know... Austrian Thomas Muster, a former World No. 1, never won the Vienna title, though he reached the final three times. Horst Skoff became the first Austrian to triumph here, with victory over Muster in the 1988 final. Jurgen Melzer joined Skoff on the honour roll with back-to-back singles titles in 2009-10.
