ATP Basel Players 2018

Three of the world's top 10, including undisputed star attraction Roger Federer, lead the field at the 2018 Swiss Indoors Basel in the last week of 500 play in the ATP World Tour season.

A former ballboy in Basel who maintains a popular tradition of holding a pizza party for the ballkids after every event, Federer has won the title at the Swiss Indoors no fewer than eight times between 2006 and 2017. The world no. 3 looks like an immensely strong candidate to win a ninth title as he leads the field at ATP Basel in 2018, hoping to pick up his second 500-level title of the year after winning Rotterdam in the spring - an achievement which saw him reclaim the world no. 1 ranking, becoming the oldest man in history to hold the top spot. 

Federer is looking for his fourth title of 2018 in Basel - and his first since winning Stuttgart in June, with a few struggles coming his way since then, including defeats to John Millman at the US Open, Kevin Anderson at Wimbledon and two losses to Borna Coric in Halle and Shanghai. Can Federer find his title-winning ways in Basel ahead of the Paris Masters and the ATP Finals?

Only three men not named Roger Federer have managed to lift the title in Basel in the past decade, and while Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro won't be playing at the Swiss Indoors this year, 2016 champion Marin Cilic will as the Croatian looks to boost his chances of qualifying for the ATP Finals as well as picking up another 500-level title to add to the one he won at Queen's Club in the summer.

Federer and Cilic are joined by Alexander Zverev, returning to Basel for the first time since making his debut in 2014. The world no. 5, winner of three titles already in 2018, is joined by rising Greek star Stefanos Tsitsipas, runner-up at the Canada Masters; Spanish veteran Ronerto Bautista Agut; surprise French Open semifinalist Marco Cecchinato and brilliant young Canadian Denis Shapovalov, to name but a few. 

And Federer's compatriot Stan Wawrinka - the other favourite son of Switzerland - will also be in the field as the three-time Grand Slam champion looks for a strong end to a season that has seen him make a valiant, if stuttering, comeback from multiple knee surgeries. We've definitely seen flashes of the old Wawrinka in 'Stan the man' mode in 2018 - can he display those qualities once more at the Swiss Indoors Basel when the 2018 edition begins on Monday 22 October?

About the Swiss Indoors

Launched in 1970 as part of the Grand Prix Tennis Circuit, the Swiss Indoors has become one of the most popular stops on the ATP calendar. 

The tournament has been held at the 9000-seater St. Jakobshalle since 1995, and became part of the ATP World Tour 500 Series in 2009. 

Held in the same week as the ATP 500 in Vienna, the Swiss Indoors marks one of the final events on the annual calendar, as only the Paris Masters and the ATP Finals are staged after Basel before the curtains fall on the season. As such, the tournament has become an important stop for the world's best players, who often stop by in the Swiss city in the late scramble for points to get into the season-ending World Tour Finals.

Over the years the Swiss Indoors Basel has boasted several top ranked champions including Bjorn Borg, Ivan Lendl, John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Stefan Edberg and Pete Sampras. However the legendary Roger Federer is the undisputed king of his hometown tournament. Federer holds the record for most singles titles won (eight), most consecutive singles titles won (three between 2006-08), most singles finals contested (12) and most consecutive singles finals contested (10).

Since Federer first won the title in 2006, defeating Fernando Gonzalez in the final, only three other man have managed to claim the crown at the Swiss Indoors: Novak Djokovic in 2009, who defeated Federer in the final; Juan Martin del Potro, who defeated Federer in back-to-back finals in 2012-13; and Marin Cilic, who took advantage of Federer's absence in 2016 to win the Basel title when he defeated Kei Nishikori in the final. 

Federer took back his supremacy at the Swiss Indoors in 2017, however, beating the resurgent del Potro in a three-set final to claim his eighth title.
