– In their first meeting in 21 months, Roger Federer ended a three-and-a-half year drought with victory over Rafael Nadal on Sunday.
– Competing in a record 12th final on home soil in Basel, the top seed added a seventh trophy, a feat he has also achieved at four other tournaments in his career (Wimbledon, Halle, Dubai, Cincinnati).
– Federer earned his third title this year at an ATP World Tour 500 event, adding to crowns in Dubai and Halle, and sixth overall in 2015. It was the 88th title of his career.
– Nadal, who owns a 23-11 FedEx ATP Head2Head edge, was vying for just his second indoor hard court trophy (Madrid 2005). He falls to 67-31 in tour-level finals and 3-3 this year.
– Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares gave their Barclays ATP World Tour Finals bid a big boost as they captured their second title of the season. In ninth place in the Emirates ATP Doubles Race To London, they closed the gap on eighth-placed Rohan Bopanna and Florin Mergea to just 125 points.

Federer: “It was one of my best weeks in Basel, considering everything I’ve done throughout my career here. I thought the match was close. I had my chances in the second, but he fought back well, like he’s done throughout the week really. Overall I was really happy how I played and it was a very special day.

“I know I’ve had better backhand days and he’s had better forehand days than today, but the match was high quality and it was entertaining and exciting for both of us as well. The confidence is good, no doubt about that. It’s good to get back into the mood of winning after Shanghai… I think the body’s gotten used to match play again after all these weeks of not playing.”

Nadal: “My goal is to get back to my level and be competitive against the top players again and today I was very competitive against one of the best players in the world. The match wasn’t far away from me. He played well and I played well too. The match was very close to win, but I think he served very well in the third. I want to congratulate him for the victory and I had a lot of quality things in my game and mental side to take away from the week.”

Soares: “Paris will be another very tough event. All we can do is bring our confidence to Paris. Right now we’re playing some great tennis, probably our best of the whole year. So let’s try to bring this momentum to Paris and fight for the last spot.”

Peya: “It feels amazing. We had a rollercoaster in the first round and got through it. But most of the time that’s how you end up winning tournaments! Then we started playing really well and picked up our confidence. I think we played pretty great matches after.”
