The 2015 Swiss Indoors Basel Draw was released Saturday, featuring eight of the ATP World Tour’s top twenty ranked players. 6-time champion Roger Federer is the top seed at his hometown tournament, an event where he has reached the final every year since 2006. The Swiss maestro will face Mikhail Kukushkin in the first round. His draw becomes much trickier from the second round itself, as he could face German Philip Kohlschreiber. Last year’s final lurks as a quarterfinal rematch, where Federer is likely to meet eighth seed David Goffin.
Big servers Kevin Anderson or John Isner are projected to be semifinal opponents for the 34-year-old Swiss. Leading the bottom half of the draw are second seed Stan Wawrinka, third seed Rafael Nadal, and fifth seed Richard Gasquet.
