With Rafael Nadal's withdrawal from the ATP Swiss Indoors event in Basel due to fatigue, it is a good news for Roger Federer as his obstacles (based on rankings) are now down to Juan Martin del Potro and Tomas Berdych.
Seeded third, the five-time Basel champ needs to have a strong run this week as well as the upcoming Paris Masters in order to secure one of the four spots left in the World Tour Finals (WTF) at the O2, London in November.

A couple of days earlier, Federer admitted that he had made disastrous errors in this year's campaign. However he said retirement is not on his agenda.
The seventeen-time Grand Slam winner proved made a winning start at the Swiss Indoors with a 6-4, 6-2 win over Adrian Mannarino yesterday. He will face either Uzbekistan's Denis Istomin in the second round tomorrow.

Federer has qualified for the season-ending tournament WTF every year since 2002, winning it six times. I believe he is not going to miss it this year too.
