Roger Federer will be looking for his 7th career title in home town. Join us to find out his chances, the other main contenders and the players to keep an eye on this event.
The Swiss Indoors takes place in Basel and will be played on Indoor Hard Court
After a disappointing early loss in Shanghai against Albert Ramos-Vinolas, Roger Federer will be looking for a better performance in his hometown. The Suisse loves this ATP Basel tournament and will try to collect his 7th career title on this event.
Federer has a great draw to make it into the final without much problems this week. There are some good shot makers on his side of the draw such as Philipp Kohlschreiber or last year runner up, David Goffin. He might also face a big server in semifinals like John Isner or Kevin Anderson however neither of this players seem able to defeat Federer on this Basel courts.
Stan Wawrinka hasn’t been able to win a match on this event since 2011, when he reached semifinals. The 2nd seed had a terrible draw, not only he’s in the same side as other very good players but his first round match will be a nightmare, against Ivo Karlovic.
Karlovic will be just the first of many tough matches for Stan this week, after the match with the Croatian big server, he might face the following players: Alexandr Dolgopolov, Richard Gasquet and Rafael Nadal.
Wawrinka has always struggled on this event, his lack of consistency is well known and with such a tough draw ahead is hard to find any value on him at 7.00 on bet365.
Player to keep an eye on
John Isner returns to Basel after a four years absence. The American had an early loss in Vienna against Ernest Gulbis and his first match on this event will be once again against Ernest.
It won’t be easy for John this week but he should be favorite in all his three matches before semifinals against: Gulbis, Jack Sock and Kevin Anderson. If Isner reaches semifinals shouldn’t have much chances against Federer however Isner price at 26.00 on bet365 has very good. We advise to take his tennis odds before the event for a trade in later stages of the competition.
