ATP World Tour (October 28, 2018) Roger Federer won his 99th tour-level title on Sunday, defeating qualifier Marius Copil 7-6(5), 6-4 to triumph in front of his home crowd at the Swiss Indoors Basel for the ninth time.
This is the second tournament at which Federer has lifted nine titles (also Halle). The victory brings Federer within one trophy of the century mark, which only Jimmy Connors, with 109 tour-level singles titles, has reached. The top seed also leaves Basel with his fourth title of the season, a feat he has now accomplished 14 times.
“To come through and win again here in my hometown, never knowing if this might be your last time that you had the opportunity to play a final, maybe win for the last time here in my city, it obviously means a lot to me and it becomes very emotional,” Federer said.
“It’s been a magical week. It was dream run for me.”
Copil, now ranked at 93, will see his ranking rise into the 70s as of Monday
