Everything is set up for the opening show as part of the Erste Bank Open - and the Red Bull BassLine line-up really has it all! With Cameron Norrie, the man of the hour is also there - the Briton who is currently in 16th position in the world ranking list won his second title of the season in Los Cabos (MEX) at the ATP Masters 1000 tournament in Indian Wells last weekend and was at the ATP this year -Tour already in six finals in total.

While the Chilean Cristian Garin, who won his home tournament in Santiago this season, relies on his fighting skills, the cannon attacks are the strongest weapons of US boy Reilly Opelka. In short: The Red Bull Bass Line field offers a perfect mix of completely different playing systems.

First big show in Vienna

What can visitors expect at Red Bull BassLine? An event that not only takes place in rapid succession, but also presents tennis in a completely new way. The tournament is interactive, there is no referee - should it be necessary, the players decide for themselves. Between the points, a moderator will conduct interviews with the players on the court or collect expert opinions from the other participants in the athletes' area. A DJ heats the fans in the hall during the rallies. And the task of the line judge is covered by "Electronic Line Calling".

Red Bull BassLine can be streamed live on Red Bull TV from 6:20 p.m. on Friday, October 22, 2021. Tickets are also available for sale at the cash registers on site.
