Tennis news…

Rafael Nadal has indicated that he is targeting the 2013 Australian Open next January as the most likely place he will return to competitive tournament play.  Let’s hope he does indeed get back at least by early next year!

Roger Federer will attempt to defend his title at the Swiss indoor tournament at Basel (his hometown) next week.  We all know Roger is the best indoor hard court player in the world (still at his best, the best player in the world).  At any rate, he has a lot of points to defend this fall if he wants to finish the year at number 1, with Djokovic making a huge push to overtake him.  After Basel, the tour moves to the city of lights, Paris, and then onto London for the Year End Final Event.  Would not be shocked to see Fed skip Paris should he defend in Basel and give himself a rest before heading to London.  Will have to wait and see. First things first, looking forward to seeing Roger play in Basel!
