Roger Federer Basel champion

Roger Federer Basel champion

Roger Federer scored a 6-2, 6-2 win over David Goffin to win his sixth Swiss Indoors Basel title.

Federer finds himself less than 500 points behind Novak Djokovic in the battle for the number 1 spot in the rankings.

"It would be very special to reclaim No. 1," said Federer. "World No. 1 is what it's all about in our game. With the year I have had and the amount of finals I have played, the level of tennis I have played, I am pleased to see that I have a shot. But having a shot and being there is two separate things. I am sure that Novak is going to come in very motivated, just after having a baby. I am very happy for him. There are clearly interesting weeks ahead."

Roger broke in the first game and cruised from there, securing an early break for 3-2 in the second set and closing out the victory after just 51 minutes. He fired five aces and 19 winners, winning an impressive 93 per cent of second serve points.

Coric upsets Nadal in Basel

Coric upsets Nadal in Basel

Borna Coric upset Rafael Nadal 62 76 to reach the semifinals of the Swiss Indoors in Basel.

Coric next plays David Goffin, who beat beat Milos Raonic 6-7 (3), 6-3, 6-4.

Nadal, who announced after the match he will have season-ending appendicitis surgery and was playing just his third tournament since Wimbledon due to a wrist injury, looked nowhere near his best while Coric was in sparkling form.

"It was difficult in the whole match, in the whole tournament," Nadal said. "Every day I felt more tired, I tried to practice, to get fit but it was not possible. The past four, five months have been very tough for me. It's been difficult to play and compete."

"It's an unbelievable feeling," Coric said. "I'm so proud of myself and I hope I can play the same game tomorrow.

"There was pressure but I didn't have anything to lose, because if I lose I lost to the No. 1 in the world. I never played against him so I didn't know what would happen, whether he would kill me or not."

Federer wins Basel opener

Federer wins Basel opener

Roger Federer beat Gilles Muller 6-2, 6-1 in just 47 minutes in his opening match at the Swiss Indoors Basel.

Federer hit 12 winners, including five aces in the 24-minute opener and did not lose any of his service points in the second set.

"I am very happy with how the first round went here," said Federer. "It was totally different to Shanghai, when I saved five match points [versus Leonardo Mayer]. This time around, I was really in control from the get-go. I hope I can keep this level up."

Atr this win, the Swiss stands 945 points behind No. 1-ranked Novak Djokovic.

Federer will next meet Denis Istomin in the second round.

"He really imposes his game, with a big forehand, backhand and serve," said Federer of Istomin. "He can be dangerous on return too. I have to be sharp on my own service games, which was a problem here against him last year."

Federer vs Del Potro in Basel final

Federer vs Del Potro in Basel final

Roger Federer will play against Juan Martin del Potro in the Swiss Indoors final after the Swiss beat Paul-Henri Mathieu 7-5, 6-4 and the Argentine crushed Richard Gasquet 6-2, 6-2.

Federer and Del Potro played 6 times in 2012 with the world number 1 taking all the wins.

"I'm excited to see how he is going to come out and play," Federer said. "We have had a couple of tough ones, at the French Open and particularly at the Olympics. I had a really hard time breaking his serve. The margins are extremely small."

"Now he is finally back to his real self again," Federer said. "He looked really impressive today."

"I was close in the Olympics and French Open but I never beat him this year," said Del Potro. "He has all the shots. He's a very, very complete player."

Federer wins opener in Basel

Roger Federer scored a 7-5, 6-3 win over Benjamin Becker in the first round of the Swiss Indoors Basel.

Federer was down a break in the second set but broke Becker three times in total to win in 88 minutes.

"He did well," Federer said of Becker. "He did serve well when it was important, so credit to him. When I did have my small chances, I hope I could’ve done a little bit better, but overall I’m still very happy with tonight’s performance.

"Ever since my first win here, the pressure has actually gone instead of increased, in my opinion," he shared. "I feel I can come here and just perform, enjoy and try my best. It’s pretty simple, actually, the approach.
