Swiss Indoors

The Swiss Indoors is a professional men's tennis tournament played on indoor hard courts. Originally it was an event of the Grand Prix tennis circuit between 1970 and 1989. Since 2009 it has been part of the World Tour 500 Series of the ATP Tour. Before 2009, it was part of the ATP International Series which in 2009 became the ATP World Tour 250 series. It has been held annually at the St. Jakobshalle in Basel, Switzerland, in October, since 1995.

Roger Federer holds the record for most singles titles, having won the tournament eight times, in 2006–2008, 2010–2011, 2014–2015 and 2017. Federer has reached the final a record thirteen times (2000–2001, 2006–2015, 2017), which is also an Open Era record for most finals reached at a single ATP event.

Three Swiss players have won the singles title: Michel Burgener, in 1972, Jakob Hlasek, in 1991, and Roger Federer, in 2006–2008, 2010–2011, 2014–2015 and 2017. The tournament was played on its unique red colored indoor courts until 2010; starting in 2011 the court color was changed to the uniform blue courts of most other tournaments in the European fall indoor season.

The tournament has been sponsored in the past by Ebel and Davidoff.[5]
