ATP Vienna and the Race to London
The conclusion of the 2017 Emirates ATP Race To London is coming to an end. Only two weeks are left in the race for this event and a couple of the qualification spots at the ATP finals are also up for grabs. The event is already set to witness Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Dominic Thiem, and Alexander Zverev, but the remaining places are yet to be confirmed for this prestigious event. It will be held at the O2 Arena in London from November 12 to 19.
Since four players will still be able to qualify for the event, the competition is intense between Kevin Anderson, Grigor Dimitrov, Sam Querrey, and Pablo Carreno Busta. The upcoming Erste Bank Open 500 that takes place in Vienna provides a great opportunity to qualify for the event. Meanwhile, the Swiss Indoors Basel will be providing the same opportunity for the likes of Juan Martin del Porto, Marin Cilic, and David Goffin. Dimitrov will be able to reach the London finals even now, as he takes on Juan Martin del Porto in the final of the Intrum Stockholm Open. Dimitrov will be able to reach London with a victory at Stockholm for a second title.
