Basel Final: Del Potro beats Federer!

Home favourite Roger Federer surprisingly lost the Swiss Indoors Final.

The thrilling game went all the way to a final set tie-break but it was the Argentine who came out on top beating the Wimbledon champion 6-4 6-7 7-6. This victory, that’s gave him 500 ATP points, has assured Juan Martin del Potro’s place at the Tour Finals.

This defeat means Roger will have to wait a bit longer for his 77th career title. Unfortunately he won’t be able to have a chance at being victorious at the Paris Masters ATP 1000 this week becuase he has pulled out of that due to a few niggling injuries he wants resolving ahead of the all important ATP World Tour Finals.
