Nole aims to defend title in Basel

The end of the 2010 tennis season is getting closer. Nole will play in Basel, Paris, London and Belgrade.

Four great events, four challenges and four opportunities to continue with great results after China.

Novak has captured two titles in 2010, Dubai and Beijing; he’s won 52 out of 66 matches.

12 months ago Nole made his debut at the ATP World Tour 500 tournament in Basel and lifted the winner’s trophy. The world no. 3 is going back there, eager to defend his title and win his 3rd tournament of 2010. He defeated three-time defending champion Roger Federer in his hometown 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 in the finals last year.

Djokovic also beat Andreas Beck, Jan Hernych, Stanislas Wawrinka and Radek Stepanek en-route to his 15th career title.

Novak will be second-seeded again, just like last year.

The Swiss Indoors Basel tournament will take place from 1 to 7 November for the prize money of € 1,225,000.

The event is celebrating its 40th jubilee with an impressive line-up, including four men from the world’s top ten: Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Tomas Berdych and Andy Roddick. Jurgen Melzer, Marin Cilic Ivan Ljubicic, Marcos Baghdatis, Janko Tipsarevic, Viktor Troicki and many other players will also participate.

The draw will be held on Saturday, October 30, at 16:00 CET.

Until then, enjoy the highlights from the last year’s final:
