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.”

First set in the bag. Two super forehands down the line!


It's sometimes nicer to have foreign language commentary. Some English commentators tend to be overly pessimistic or panicky and that kinda makes me anxious too!
