Roger Federer won the TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Open after defeating Pablo Cuevas 6-3, 7-6(11).
With the win, Turkey became the 19th different country in which Federer has won an ATP World Tour title.
The top seed capitalised on one one of his three break point opportunities to easily take the first set in 33 minutes. The Swiss broke again in the seventh game of the second set and looked to be in cruise control until the 29-year-old Uruguayan broke back to level the set at 4-all. Federer then earned triple break point on Cuevas' serve before the World No. 23 was able to hold at 5-4.
