Home delight for Federer
Roger Federer outclassed David Goffin in the Swiss Indoors final on Sunday, winning 6-2, 6-2 to claim a third title from his last four events and sixth in his home event.
Federer spent just 51 minutes in delighting his hometown crowd, setting up two match points with a fifth ace and effortlessly piloting over a winning drop shot on his first opportunity to claim the 82nd title of his career.
The Swiss world number two comfortably dominated his baby-faced Belgian opponent just as he had done in their first meeting at the French Open in 2012.
"I'm very pleased with how well I'm playing," said the 17-time Grand Slam champion, who will carry on next week to the Paris Masters, followed by the season finals in London and a Davis Cup final for Switzerland on indoor clay in France.
Federer, 33, also boosted his chances of regaining the world number one ranking from Novak Djokovic by the season's end.
