It would have been completely unthinkable for me that he would have missed Basel.

I guess he won't play Davis Cup in September though this year even though Switzerland has home advantage.

The Swiss team should really be able to beat Ecuador without him.

I took this quote from the article Doris translated in the press thread (thanks alot btw )
and I'm curious to see how Roger's fall schedule will look now b/c he has 0 pts. to defend in Paris but might skip it b/c of Basel again. If he doesn't play DC then he will probably go to Shaghai.

I have often missed tournaments due to the Swiss Indoors, so it’s nothing new. I love to to to Asia or Paris but you have to set priorities and Basel has always been one of my priorities.

I think Roger needs to play one or two events more.

If I were him, I will play Washington ATP 500, Tokio ATP 500 and Stockholm.

I guess because Roger has not been out this early at Wimbledon for so long he got the itch to play some more. From Roger's twitter:

I’ve decided to play #opengstaad. Very excited to play in Switzerland this summer.This was the event that gave me my first wild card in ‘98!
Obviously not playing this for the surface, but some extra matches going into US HC season is nice I guess. Also some points will be nice

Strange
grass-> clay--> hardcourt

Wonder why he doesn't play Washington 500 on hc?

Yes!

Finally some movements on his schedule. And hopefully another tournament throphy.

I wonder why he isn´t playing Washington. I think he does not want to travel to the USa before the Canada Masters. Washington ends a day before Montreal starts. And then you have to travel.

On the other hand, Gstaad is in Switzerland, and finish a week before Montreal.

Anyway, I would choose Washington because of the points.

Gstaad entry list:

1 Wawrinka, Stanislas SUI 10
2 Tipsarevic, Janko SRB 14
3 Monaco, Juan ARG 20
4 Paire, Benoit FRA 25
5 Chardy, Jeremy FRA 27

11 Bellucci, Thomaz BRA 47
12 Hanescu, Victor ROU 49
13 Gimeno-Traver, Daniel ESP 50
14 Andujar, Pablo ESP 52
15 Brands, Daniel GER 57
16 Haase, Robin NED 58
17 Bautista Agut, Roberto ESP 62
18 Kuznetsov, Andrey RUS 77
19 Garcia-Lopez, Guillermo ESP 79

Washington entry list

1 Tsonga, Jo-Wilfried FRA 7
2 Nishikori, Kei JPN 11
3 Haas, Tommy GER 13
4 Raonic, Milos CAN 15
5 Simon, Gilles FRA 17

I can see why he doesn't want to play Washington-(no break)-Canada-Cinci. Also I think, though it's only 2013, we might begin to see the start of an extended farewell tour (actually I think we began to see it with the SA exhibition at the end of last year)

Gstaad is fast clay, Washington is a fast HC. The US Open is more like a medium HC than a fast HC these days.

I was really surprised when I read that Roger is going to play this tournament.

There was much discussion in the last days whether it would be good for him to play a tournament before the HC season but I guess nobody saw it coming that it would be on clay.

Roger is experienced enough anyway to deal with surface changes so I don't think it will matter that much.

Swiss fans will surely be happy to see him playing in his home country again

When did he last play it? Seems like a few years ago, if my memory isn't faulty.

I just looked at his schedule the other day and thought it was really weird that he wasn't playing for another month. I suppose Switzerland is less disruptive for the family, too.
