ROGER FEDERER BRUSHES DE MINAUR ASIDE TO CLAIM RECORD 10TH BASEL TITLE
Roger Federer clinched a record-extending 10th Swiss Indoors championship title in his hometown of Basel with a crushing 6-2 6-2 victory over Australia’s Alex de Minaur on Sunday.
The 38-year-old Swiss has now won 103 singles titles in his career and the record win in Basel – where he once acted as a ball boy – was the second time he had won a tournament 10 times after achieving the feat in Halle in June.
Federer converted four of 10 break points and did not drop serve to wrap up the match in 68 minutes for his fourth title of the year after wins in Dubai, Miami and Halle.
