“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!”
Roger Federer at @rogerfederer a few minutes ago.
The Open Gstaad will be played between the 20th and the 28th July 2013 and it is an ATP 250 event. The second Roger Federer will play this year after the recent win in Halle.
Surely the premature elimination during Wimbledon’s first week played a role in this decision. Roger Federer was facing more than one month out of courts if he’d stick with is 2013 Schedule.
In Gstaad he will be facing the competition of Stanislas Wawrinka, Janko Tipsarevic, Juan Monaco, Benoit Paire, Jérémy Chardy and Mikhail Youzhny.
