    The Tournament:

    The Austrian Open Kitzbühel (formally known as the Generali Open Kitzbühel) is an annual tennis tournament held in Kitzbühel, Austria. The event was part of the ATP World Series from the creation of ATP World Tour till 1998, International Series Gold from 1999–2008 and ATP World Tour 250 series in 2009. It was a part of the ATP Challenger Tour in 2010 before regaining top tour status. It is once again part of the 250 series. The tournament has been held, since 1894, on clay courts. Src: Wiki

    The Players:

    Dominic Thiem is the top ranked seed and he is having an outstanding 2016 season. Thiem knows the venue well having finished runner-up in 2014. Philipp Kohlschreiber lives nearby and is looking to match the winning formula he found last year when winning the event.
    Marcel Granollers and Lukas Rosol are also ones to watch from the field.

    I wondered what happened to Melzer. Nice to see him back after a shoulder injury.

    What a nice guy, Kohli. I'd like to see Thiem - Kohli final.

    When I hear Kitzbuhel, I always think winter and downhill.:D

    Mini Dip in form for Thiem?

    Nice to see Jurgen Melzer mixing it again and a good scalp for the German on his comeback trail..

    For 3 out of the 4 semifnalists this is their first. Only Lorenzi was in one before, being runner up in the Brasil open in 2014.
    Major opportunity for all of them.
