The Erste Bank Open 2019 start on Saturday with the first day of qualification. Three Austrians will join the action after they were awarded qualification wild cards by tournament director Herwig Straka.
The qualification kicks off at 11 am on the centercourt with Alexander Erler (ATP 529) against no. 2 seed Cameron Norrie (ATP 61) from Great Britain, directly followed by Sebastian Ofner (ATP 165) against veteran German Philipp Kohlschreiber (ATP 76), the qualification’s number 5. The third match will be between the final Austrian, Lukas Miedler (ATP 280) and Italy’s Stefano Travaglia (ATP 83), the number 8 of the qualification.
Doors open at 10.45 am, entry is – like on qualification Sunday – free.
