Daniil Medvedev vs Denis Shapovalov, Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Holger Rune: Match times, TV and streaming info
Sunday’s two ATP 500 finals will see Daniil Medvedev take on Denis Shapovalov in the Vienna Open while over at the Swiss Indoors it will be Felix Auger-Aliassime up against Holger Rune.
Playing in his first tournament since retiring from his semi-final against Novak Djokovic at the Astana Open, top seed Medvedev has been in imperious form as he has reached the Austrian final without dropping a set.
On Saturday he dispatched Grigor Dimitrov 6-4, 6-2 in the last four and his win was set up by an impressive service display.
“I was working a lot with my coach to try and find this rhythm [again], and so far I’m serving good here. I’m really happy about it and that’s also why I’m playing so good,” the Russian said.
Medvedev is looking for his second title of the year with his only trophy success coming at the Los Cabos Open in August while he finished runner-up at the Australian Open, s’Hertogenbosch and Halle.

Shapovalov, meanwhile, hasn’t won a title since October 2019 – his only title to date – although he was a finalist at the Korea Open earlier this month.
The Canadian also had a solid semi-final win as he defeated Borna Coric 7-6 (7-4), 6-0.
Medvedev leads the head-to-head 3-2.
“I’ve struggled against him in the last couple of matches that we’ve played,” Shapovalov said. “He’s an extremely difficult opponent to play against. He bothers a lot of guys, so it’s going to be a difficult matchup, [but] I’m confident in myself, I think I’m playing some really good tennis. I’m going to take it to him and battle my heart out.”
In Basel, Auger-Aliassime is looking for his third title in as many weeks as he won the Firenze Open and European Open over the past fortnight.
The third seed made it 12 wins in a row as he upset world No 1 Carlos Alcaraz 6-3, 6-2 in the semi-final to improve his head-to-head record against the Spaniard to 3-0.
“There’s still one match to go, but it’s been a fantastic week, [I have] played some great tennis, and again today against the best player in the world. It’s an amazing win, so I’m really happy with my level and hopefully I can go all the way,” the Canadian said.

Rune, who defeated Roberto Bautista Agut 7-6 (7-1), 7-6 (8-6) to book his place in the final, is also in hot form as he won the Stockholm Open last week.
His run to the final will see him enter the top 20 in the ATP Rankings for the first time next week.
“I’m just trying to focus,” Rune said. “Felix has been playing some great tennis, not just behind serve, but in general. He played great tennis today as well. I’m super excited for another great final and hopefully it will be very good tennis.”
