ATP Tour 500 – EUR 2.276 million – 22 to 30 October 2022
Super Monday is doing full justice to its reputation
The wave of the Next Generation is becoming a surf at this year's Swiss Indoors. With Norwegian Caspar Ruud (ATP 7) and Italy's young star Lorenzo Musetti (ATP 30), two more pros from the tour's "hottest players" will be competing at the Swiss tennis highlight. Quarter-finalist Ruud even took part in the match fight for the new men's world No. 1 at the US Open in New York in the second week!
The talents fill the center court
Basel will once again live up to its reputation of being "The Name of the Game". Already known are the new Spanish hero and four-time season winner Carlos Alacaraz (ATP 4) and Canada's smart shotmaker Felix Auger-Aliassime (ATP 8). Both will start on "Super Monday" (October 24), framed by the festive Opening Ceremony with star guest Alvaro Soler.
Tennis world class instead of smoked salmon
Only 24 years young, Norway's Ruud is polishing his reputation, this year a finalist at the French Open in Paris and a four-time ATP event title holder in Gstaad and Geneva (two triumphs each). Norway has been known for cross-country skiers and smoked salmon, but now Ruud's ice-cold match control reminds one of Sweden's Björn Borg. The 20-year-old Musetti packed it in this season: first the right-hander passed the Matura, and afterwards he won the coveted title at Hamburg's Rothenbaum after a final victory over Carlos Alcaraz.
The return of Roger Federer
In stark contrast to the presence of the Next Gen is the comeback of ten-time Basel title holder Roger Federer (protected ranking ATP 9). Federer has already announced his return to the big center court for the Laver Cup from September 23-25. Federer will be joined on the Swiss Connection by upstart Dominic Stricker (ATP 127) from Berne, who has been awarded the first of three wildcards.
