http://tennis.com/ticker/index.aspxWawrinka decision to miss Basel seen as snub
September 23, 2010

Stanislas Wawrinka will play Valencia this fall instead of the ATP event in Basel held the same week.

Headlines in Switzerland described Wawrinka as 'sulking' and 'turning his back' on the Swiss tournament, which is headlined by hometown favorite Roger Federer.

Wawrinka, who played and won his local challenger in Lugano just before Wimbledon, also missed the Swiss tournament in Gstaad held shortly after Wimbledon. He has been a consistent presence for Switzerland in Davis Cup, which has had only selective appearances by Federer in recent years.

Fantastic entry list :yeah:

Can't wait for the tournament to start and to see a lot of my favourite players live :)

There were already discussions last year when he wanted (too much) money. In the end, he played anyway.
In Basel, the director said he only pays Top10 players; for the rest, possible points and money should be incentive enough. Maybe Stan will get money in Valencia, still I'd always prefer playing in Switzerland at home than somewhere abroad.

Chiudinelli should get a WC...

Blake might get a WC here as well :o I found that out on some Austrian sites because of their discussion about Blake´s WC at Vienna.

Would be such a joke if this mug even gets WCs for 500's even in Europe. I don´t care if he gets wildcards at San Jose, Memphis and Delray Beach next February, that´s in the states, where it´s "normal" for an American guy to get wildcards.

Good field :) I like a lot of the players, but I think it will probably be Nole and Roger at the end.
