SWISS INDOORS BASEL – ATP WORLD TOUR 500 FROM 18-26 October 2014
Super Monday with Paul Anka and two Grand-Slam winners!
Before music and tennis unite in harmonious mixed doubles, the first highlight of the tournament has already been scheduled for Super Monday on 20 October 2014. Under the auspices of sponsors Manor, Blick and L’illustré, Canada’s iconic singer Paul Anka and his orchestra will open the Swiss Indoors (5.30 p.m.), followed by the opening match between French Open winner Rafael Nadal and Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka. Watching the world number 2 and number 4 on the same night as an overture is not something that tennis fans experience every day.
Paul Anka in concert
Music will sound in the night when the climax of Swiss tennis starts. The Super Monday appearances in previous years by Udo Jürgens, Paul Potts and Montserrat Caballé triggered a wave of enthusiasm. Now it is the turn of living legend Paul Anka (73) to step up to the net. He is regarded as the Elvis Presley of the ballad. His songs ‘Diana’ and ‘You Are My Destiny’ with global sales of ten million each are among the ten top singles of all time, as is the song ‘My Way’ with its melody which was composed for Frank Sinatra. The son of Lebanese parents, Anka was born in Ottawa (Ontario) and has lived for many years in Los Angeles and New York. Before coming to Basel, he will be touring Europe, with concerts in Vienna, Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Prague and Tel Aviv.
Tennis overture with Rafael Nadal and Stan Wawrinka
In sporting terms, the Swiss Indoors will begin with a bang. The formidable left-hander of tennis today, Rafael Nadal (ATP 2), nine-time champion of Roland Garros and winner of 14 Grand Slams, will play his opening match at 6.45 p.m., after Paul Anka’s concert. Nadal is returning to the Rhine riverside after having to withdraw at the last minute last year. Stan Wawrinka (ATP) will also be playing his opening match on Super Monday. The winner of the Australian Open will be making every effort to present himself to his home audience in truly superb form.
Federer, Raonic and Dimitrov shine at Wimbledon
The elite field at Basel will see appearances by three of the four Wimbledon semi-finalists as well as Nadal and Wawrinka. Record-holder Roger Federer (ATP 3) contested the Wimbledon final for the tenth time and was only defeated by Novak Djokovic after a top-class match. And the young stars Milos Raonic (ATP 6) and Grigor Dimitrov (ATP 9), on their way to the top, could only be stopped in the semi-finals by the titans Federer and Djokovic.
Juan Martin Del Potro still in question
The title-holder Juan Martin Del Potro (ATP 8) has restarted training after a wrist operation. The Argentinian is confident that he will be able to defend his title in Basel.
fans4roger would like to congratulate Mirka & Roger on the birth of their healthy twin baby boys, Leo and Lenny.
We wish the new arrivals good health & prosperity and that your two little bundles of joy will bring you much happiness & laughter in the future.
