STARNBERG, October 9, 2022

Florence and Gijon host indoor hard-court action this week as two strong fields compete in an ATP 250 double-header from 10-16 October.

Canadian youngster Felix Auger-Aliassime is the top seed at the UniCredit Firenze Open as the ATP Tour returns to Florence for the first time since 1994. The 22-year-old will start his title bid against the winner of the encounter between Marton Fucsovics of Hungary and Germany’s Oscar Otte.

Second seed Matteo Berrettini and third favourite Lorenzo Musetti will seek strong performances in front of their home fans at the Palazzo Wanny.

At the Gijon Open, top seed Andrey Rublev of Russia is seeking to boost his Nitto ATP Finals qualification chances with a strong run in north-west Spain. After a first-round by, the World No. 9 will either face Belarusian Ilya Ivashka or Spanish wild card Feliciano Lopez.

Home hopes Pablo Carreno Busta and Roberto Bautista Agut are seeded second and third, respectively, while former World No. 1 Andy Murray of Great Britain and 17-time tour-level titlist Dominic Thiem from Austria will also compete at the Palacio de Deportes de la Guia.
