STARNBERG, October 24, 2022

Basel and Vienna are the hosts this week on the ATP Tour as strong fields line up at the final two ATP 500 events of 2022.

World No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz of Spain headlines the draw at the Swiss Indoors Basel, where fellow Top 10 stars Casper Ruud of Norway and in-form Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime, champion of last week’s European Open in Antwerp, are among his rivals. Former Grand Slam champions Andy Murray of Great Britain and home favourite Stan Wawrinka will also be in action in Switzerland.

At the Erste Bank Open in Vienna, Daniil Medvedev from Russia and Stefanos Tsitsipas from Greece are the first and second seeds, respectively, with home favourite Dominic Thiem a potential second-round opponent for Medvedev. Russian Andrey Rublev and US-American Taylor Fritz will seek to bolster their Nitto ATP Finals qualification chances with a strong run in the Austrian capital.
