For Jurij Rodionov, the qualification for the Erste Bank Open in Vienna against Kevin Anderson was already over at the beginning.

There are certainly more pleasant openers for a preliminary round than Kevin Anderson. Jurij Rodionov had the dubious honor of meeting the South African in the first round of qualification for the Erste Bank Open in Vienna. And at the end of the day, what was to be feared happened: The Lower Austrian had to admit defeat to the former world number five after just 1:04 hours of play with 1: 6, 4: 6.

The man from Johannesburg ended up with 13 aces on the credit side. Rodionov only had to show a non-returnable premium over the entire game. The rate of points won after the first service speaks a clear language for the Vienna champion of 2018 with 84:63 percent.Anderson meets in the second and final qualifying round on the Spaniard Roberto Carballes Baena, who is the Swiss talent Dominic Stricker 6 : 4, 3: 6, 6: 1 defeated.

From an Austrian point of view, only Lucas Miedler is involved in the qualifying final on Sunday. He's up against number one in the preliminary round, Frances Tiafoe. The match starts at 1 p.m. at the Center Court in the Wiener Stadthalle.
