Rafael Nadal will return to the Swiss Indoors Basel this October, marking the first time in a decade that both he and Roger Federer will be playing at the ATP World Tour 500 tournament. 

The Swiss Indoors Basel confirmed Nadal’s participation on Monday, a few weeks after five-time champion Federer announced that he would be contesting his hometown event for the 14th time this October.

Nadal made his Basel debut in 2003 - he bowed out in the first round (l. to F. Lopez) and Federer in the second (l. to Ljubicic) - and lost again in the first round of a Federer-less draw in 2004 (l. to Schuettler).

The 2013 field will also feature defending champion Juan Martin del Potro, who defeated Federer in last year’s final, as well as Milos Raonic, Kei Nishikori and Swiss No. 2 Stanislas Wawrinka.

Tickets for the Swiss Indoors Basel, to be held from 21-27 October, are now on sale.
