Re: Early Commitments

No and Murray shouldn't play here either. Djokovic: Beijing, Shanghai, Paris, London; Murray: Tokyo, Shanghai, Basel, Paris, London. Andy playing 5 events in 6 weeks is a bit crazy, he should drop something like Tokyo or Paris.

he asked a wild-card here last year to withdraw in last minute because he had slept badly and had a problem with his neck (to play very well in Bercy next week), which was understandably very badly considered.

his presence has been announced for months

I don't think he can afford withdrawing once again for his reputation to tournaments (esp. as he's had other -even though less dramatic- problems in Dubai, Rotterdam ...)

But I think he will drop Paris to be ready for the WTF (so will Federer as well imo)

I wonder more about Del Potro, esp. if Argentina qualifies for DC final, and as he's also entered Vienna (finalist last year) previous week.

useless old guy

Davydenko decided to play Basel instead of Valencia ? Obviously he wants to play Daddy Fed and become his duck eventually next year.

Fish out (first page), Fognini will have to decide between Basel and Valencia as he's in in both

I hope Goffin plays.

Why did Istomin pull out, he just played a full healthy match today?

Re: Basel Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated October 17, 2012)

Why are seemingly healthy players like Istomin, Baghdatis, and Nishikori out?

Kei is due to right ankle injury. From his Facebook.

I don't know why Denis and Marcos but probably Marcos wants to take a rest
He played Tokyo, Shanghai and Stockholm and also he won some matches. A little bit overplayed.
