ATP Vienna: Stars Head into the Erste Bank Open 500

The ATP World Tour enters into Vienna with the Erste Bank Open 500 hosting some of the biggest names in the sport. German Alexander Zverev is one of the participants along with Dominic Thiem, who happens to be a home favourite. These big names will be looking to win one of the final titles in the 2017 ATP Tour. Zverev is coming into the event hoping to get his title in Vienna for the first time, while he has been able to lift five titles in 2017. He has already made it to the Nitto ATP Finals after having won the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles in Rome and Montreal. He comes into this event as the top seed.

Thiem has been placed as the second seed and he is the local boy coming into the event. It is not surprising that he has featured in seven editions of the tournament already. Thiem will also be taking part in the ATP finals and will have one eye on this event. The first game of the tournament will witness Thiem coming up against Andrey Rublev from Russia. Rublev is no easy opponent, as he was able to recently qualifying for the Next Gen ATP finals. This event will be held from November 7-11 in Milan.

Meanwhile, one of the favourites for the tournament, Jo Wilfried Tsonga, will be going up against Karen Khachanov as the eighth seed. He is aiming for his fourth title in 2017. The Erste Bank Open 500 promises to provide a great excitement.

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.

Rafael Nadal v Kevin Anderson – the unexpected final of the US Open (Odds & Live Streaming)

This final will be, for sure, a big moment in the careers of both players. If Rafa wins, he will strengthen his position at the top of the ATP Rankings and also add one more Slam to his already incredibile record of 15 Grand Slam titles. No one could predict at the start of the US Open that Nadal, who had big problems getting past the first rounds, will reach the final, especially after some disappointing performances following Roland Garros. But his tennis improved a lot in just two weeks and he proved once again that, on a good form, he can defeat anyone, anytime.
The semifinal against Del Potro was exactly like this. He started slow and lost the first set but then he crushed the Argentinian with 6-0, 6-2, 6-3, playing a stellar tennis.
On the other side of the net, Kevin Anderson must be overwhelmed. The South African is at the peak of his career at the US Open and he will try to defend his (rather small) chances in this final. The serve, his main feature, worked perfectly in the previous matches, but with Nadal this might not be enough. In the semifinal, the Spaniard returned most of Del Potro’s “missiles” and he also had no trouble fighting the Argentinian’s forehand, so Kevin Anderson will face a very tough match. At first glance, the final looks like a quick one, with Nadal winning in three sets. We’ll see what happens.

Now, for the live streaming, I will send you to tennisfans.tv, which seems to update their streams regularly. However, you can catch the action live on most tv stations all over the world.

Odds
As expected, the odds are against Kevin Anderson (7.00 – that’s 700% return), while Nadal has 1.12 (12% return, still pretty good considering this is the outcome everyone is expecting). Prepare for the odds to go down a lot for Nadal after the start of the match.
