Swiss Indoors, Basel

20.10.2013 | Tennis, Starseite 1

The tennis event in Roger's home-town Basel is about to start, with our champ taking the third seeding. Roger's first opponent is Frenchman Adrian Mannarino (ATP 60), who he clearly beat at this year’s US Open. In the following round he will either meet 47-ranked Denis Istomin or 48-ranked Horacio Zeballos. Roger's designated semi-final opponent is Tomas Berdych (ATP 6).

“I’m just going to focus on trying to play well,” Roger said. “I’m not too focused on the points system. So I just got to move along. I can still finish strong. I believe I can and there’s not much time left. I’m looking forward to Basel now. That’s the next step for me, and hopefully that’s going to go well for me.”

The best of luck in your first round match against Mannarino...and beyond.
You have been in this situation many times, the first round of a tournament. Do not forget who you are... You are the most talented tennis player of this era. Stay hungry. For awhile you were playing without a coach and winning Grand Slams. You'll be fine.

Always with you.

Best regards

Dear fancyfree
Thank you very much for your inpu

As you know, Rafael Nadal was the most successful player over the last 8 month and as Numebr 1 of the world of course very much promoted from the tournament side.
With his withdraw from the tournament, we did also change this on our webside.

I have just received this email in reply to my complaint re Rafa appearing on the Basel website homepage and not Roger.
