Basel tournament canceled

The tournament of Basel, one of the classics of the season on indoor court and that the Swiss Roger Federer has won ten times, has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The event was scheduled from October 24 to November 1 and was scheduled to celebrate its 50th edition.

“The ATP officially approved our cancellation request after we had already declared in June that it would be irresponsible and impossible to hold the tournament in view of the health, social and economic uncertainties, “organizers said on social media.

The next edition of the tournament will take place from October 23 to 31, 2021. It will be the 51st edition of the contest, and the organizers hope that Federer, who will not compete again until next season, may be among those registered.
