Nope it's ranking points being doubled right across the board as was the case with so many other tournaments, means that its status has remained unchanged. If Basel was a lesser tournament before 2009, it would have awarded 175/200/225 points to its winner like the smaller events did, but it didn't.
It really shouldn't be that difficult for posters here to ignore which players they like/dislike (and which tournaments are strongly associated with their favourite and least favourite players) and actually post objectively through the use of their brain cells
