The pre-sale of the 2019 Vienna Open tickets has begun according to an announcement made the organisers last week.

And in what should be good news for both, the fans and the organisers, both Kei Nishikori and Dominic Thiem have agreed to return to the tournament they had featured in last year too.

Thiem, who is a local and was ousted in the quarter-finals last year at the Vienna Open but had a breakthrough year in which he reached the French Open final, will be joined by the 2018 runner-up Nishikori in an early confirmation released.

In fact, the Japanese player had announced at the end of the final he would be glad to return to the tournament next year.

The Erste Bank Open – as it is called for sponsorship reasons – tournament director Herwig Straka said:

“Kei Nishikori was extremely enthusiastic about both the tournament and the city of Vienna with its numerous attractions.”

“The visit of the Vienna State Opera together with some other top players made a lasting impression on him, and he was also impressed by the great atmosphere during the matches inside the Stadthalle.”

He also acknowledged it was quite rare for a player to announce his participation in the next season’s tournament that quickly but obviously welcomed the decision to do that.

The tickets for the upcoming Vienna Open went up on sale on December 6, 2019 and there are two ways to purchase these tickets – through StadHalle.com or oeticket.com. Tickets for this tournament for these two tournaments are available from about €32 per person.
