The best player of all time in the person of Roger Federer and three other members of the ATP top 20: the draw of the Gonet Geneva Open is full of promises.
The whole world will be watching Roger Federer’s first steps on the clay courts of the Parc des Eaux-Vives. The Basel native is expected to play his first match on Tuesday at 6:00 pm against the winner of the match between Australian Jordan Thompson (ATP 62) and Spaniard Pablo Andujar (ATP 76).
The Gonet Geneva Open will offer to new generation of players to excel: Daniel Srticker (ATP 421) from Bern and Arthur Cazaux (ATP 518) from France. Both players have received a wild card to take part in this first event which will confront them against Marin Cilic (ATP 43) for Stricker and Adrian Mannarino (ATP 36) for Cazaux.
The last wild card was awarded to Grigor Dimitrov. World No. 17 and quarter-finalist at this year’s Australian Open in Melbourne. He came to Geneva, where he played in the qualifiers two years ago, to find his way back to victory and the confidence without which nothing is possible.
