STOCKHOLM, October 15, 2018

Only indoor tennis remains on the calendar, beginning with ATP World Tour 250 events this week in Stockholm, Antwerp and Moscow. A new champion will be crowned at the 50th edition of the Intrum Stockholm Open. Top 2 seeds John Isner and Fabio Fognini are joined by #NextGenATP stars Stefanos Tsitsipas, Denis Shapovalov, Alex de Minaur and Taylor Fritz.

Isner is playing his first ATP event as a father following the birth of his daughter Hunter on 15 September. It’s been a banner year for Isner, who won his first ATP Masters 1000 title at Miami, reached his first Grand Slam semi-final at Wimbledon and achieved a career-high No. 8 on 16 July. Isner trails Dominic Thiem by 605 points on the cut-off for Nitto ATP Finals qualification.
