Finally Bellucci will play in Switzerland.

The last time that Bellucci played in Switzerland was in Gstaad last year.

I really can't see who can beat Roger there (Novak is a bit injured)
Really good entry list and it's a pity without players like Dimitrov and Tomic

Baghdatis entered the list while being ranked 60 - He was directly accepted but other players with higher ranking were put in the alternative list - WHY ???? Is it because he is commitment player ????

yeah, he finished top-30 last year, so he's a commitment player and can enter directly into ATP 500 (same as Nalbandian, Querrey and few others in Valencia the same week)

if i'm not mistaken, Marcos is a "commitment player" because he was ranked inside the Top 30 at the end of last season. therefore the "Commitment Player Entry Exception" applies, according to which he's automatically in the main draw at any 500 event he enters.

As expected Marco Chiudinelli gets the first WC for Basel.

It is said that Donald Young will get another WC (if no one is out from the guys in MD and he should get in directly)

Probably Bohli will get a WC too. Qualified for Shanghai and is now in QF of Seoul. Only decent Swiss player left, and 4th best after Chiudinelli.
3rd then probably to Young or a surprise (sub)top guy.

According to the tournament director, Nisihikori would get a WC as well, if he doesn't enter directly.
