In the early evening, Dominic Stricker (ATP 129), a burgeoning talent, made his debut on Center Court in Basel, where the stunning serves of Maxime Cressy (ATP 34) didn’t stop him winning the match in two sets.
After this 20-year-old from Emmental had left the court, it was time for Stan Wawrinka (protected ranking), 17 years his senior, to return to Swiss Indoors Basel. In the draw, this three-time Grand Slam winner had ended up with a visibly challenging match against Casper Ruud (ATP 3).
