Federer to appear on Super Monday
As was the case in the past three years, five-time tournament winner Roger Federer will open the Swiss Indoors Basel on Super Monday, when he takes on Frenchman Adrian Mannarino (ATP 60). When the draw was made, a group of gorgeous young women immediately took an interest in this match up. Head-to-head, Federer has a 3:0 lead over the Frenchman, to whom he has yet to even lose a set. After the world premiere with Udo Jürgens, the Major record holder will take Center Court with the Pepe Lienhard Band. Federer has been in Basel since Thursday and following several training sessions on the GreenSet surface he appeared to be in good shape for the start of the European indoor season.
