Federer leads seeds with tough Basel win

ATP Basel Del Potro remains in the London chase. Wins for Sock and Coric

Federer will have the chance to claim his eighth title in Basel, and a seventh tournament win of a hugely successful year, after trouncing Goffin 6-1 6-2 in the last four.

He will hope his clash with Del Potro tomorrow is over as swiftly as this match today on the Swiss Indoors centre court.

The Argentinian beat reigning champion Marin Cilic 6-4 6-4 in his semi-final. "I wanted to take it to my opponent and I was able to do that", said Federer. "Everything changed completely, I had a much better mindset".

Del Potro, now 17-3 since the start of the US Open, won the first set on Friday but found himself facing a challenge in the second as Spain's Bautista Agut, seeded sixth, broke twice to square the match.

"But I'm not putting my body at risk if I play tomorrow or next week (Paris Bercy)".

"I'm having a good end of year, it's giving me motivation looking forward to next year".

Federer has won seven and lost five of the previous finals, with two of those defeats against Del Potro in 2012 and 2013 although overall the Swiss has beaten the Argentine 17 times out of 23. "Roger is the favourite to win - but I will see what I can do". "The only way to beat Roger is play hard and play aggressively all the time. you have to play down the lines every time and sometimes even that is not enough". I think I will be in good shape for (Sunday). "It's always a pleasure to play him, and to do it in his hometown is wonderful".

But Del Potro gathered his resources to break straight back, finishing off victory with his seventh ace of the afternoon.
