Federer back to No. 1 spot

Kyrgios grabbed a fast 2-0 lead after unleashing a flying forehand pass on the stretch but Federer rallied back to move 5-4 ahead before a flicked effort at the net confirmed his place in the final 6-7 (2-7) 6-2 7-6 (7-5). "The margins were very small, and there were very few chances and I'm glad in the tiebreakers I stepped up".

A chunk of fans expected a Kyrgios victory seeing that Federer looked rusty in his first two victories since his return to the sport in almost three months.

"I've played well throughout those as well". He's in great shape again.it's nice for him.

Federer and Raonic are no strangers to each other, particularly on grass.

Federer made history earlier this year in the Rotterdam Open in February when he became the oldest No.1 in tennis history en route to winning the tournament.
