Zverev beats Thiem in 2023 final

The third edition of Red Bull Bassline was won by German Alexander Zverev in front of a sold-out crowd. The 2021 Erste Bank Open winner prevailed in his group with two straight wins over American Frances Tiafoe and Hungarian Fabian Marzson. In the final, Zverev faced local hero Dominic Thiem, who prevailed in his group against compatriot Jurij Rodionov and Andrey Rublev. The final was a rematch of the 2020 US Open final, and unlike then, Zverev this time kept the upper hand, winning 5-1, 5-0, 3-5, 5-4. He thus succeeds Carlos Alcaraz and Karen Khachanov as winner of the kick-off for the Erste Bank Open.


Red Bull Bassline 2023 Entertainment

At Red Bull BassLine, fans are closer than ever to the players, who can warm up on ergometers right next to the court between their stints and interact with the spectators. From the first serve to the decision in the final, the event lasts around three hours as the sets are directly decided in tie-break format. Red Bull BassLine also brings other innovations to the court. For example, a DJ heats up the fans even during the rallies.


Red Bull Bassline 2023 Interaktiv

The tournament is interactive, the referee is omitted - should it be necessary, the players decide for themselves. A moderator conducts interviews with the players on the court between points and captures expert voices of the other participants in the athletes' zone. The task of the line judges is covered by "electronic line calling". Is the pulse at 180 or is the player relaxed and not letting anything get to him? Fans can find out all this through the interactive data shown exclusively to viewers.
