Wawrinka, who has three majors to his name, will also feature at St. Jakobshalle in Basel.

“If everything goes according to plan, however, the 50th-anniversary ceremony will take place as part of Super Monday on 26 October 2020,” organisers said in a short statement.

“Ten-time Swiss Indoors champion Roger Federer will play his opening match on Tuesday, 27 October 2020.

“And he’s not the only homegrown talent taking part: three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka will also be competing at St. Jakobshalle in Basel. His starting game, as well as all further program sequences, will be announced at a later date.”
