Swiss Indoors: Roger Federer remains on course for seventh title

0

Basel: Top seed Roger Federer stayed on course for a seventh title at his home tournament in Basel but was given a slight scare by David Goffin as he prevailed 6-3 3-6 6-1 on Friday (October 30) to reach the Swiss Indoors semi-finals.
The first set against Goffin flew by with Federer at his clinical best, taking the one break point on offer while saving two on his serve with some sumptuous shots mixed with the careless errors that have crept into his game in recent years.

The Belgian thoroughly deserved to level in the second and Federer had to shift gears to race through the final set, with the extra backing of his home crowd a definite factor.

Federer`s semi-final opponent on Saturday will be Jack Sock after the American overcame compatriot Donald Young 5-7 6-4 6-2.
