Friday means quarter finals at the Erste Bank Open. And what a line-up we have in store for the fans: 6 out of the top 8 are still in. This hasn’t happened in Vienna since 2009!
One of the two unseeded players has the honor of kicking off the day at 2pm on the center court: Spanish super talent Carlos Alcaraz will take on Matteo Berrettini (ITA/3) for a spot in the semis. Not before 3.30pm Felix Auger-Aliassime (CAN/6) will try to move past Alexander Zverev (GER/2).
Not before 5.30pm new fan favorite Frances Tiafoe will have his next moment in the spotlight. After sensationally defeating the tournament’s number 1, Stefanos Tsitsipas, the US qualifier will take on Diego Schwartzman (ARG/8), the finalist from 2019; and the last match will see Casper Ruud (NOR/4) face off against Jannik Sinner (ITA/7) for the final spot in the semis.
