Del Potro beats Federer to win Swiss Indoors title
BASEL, Switzerland (AP) - Juan Martin del Potro took Roger Federer's Swiss Indoors title on Sunday, beating the hometown favourite 6-4, 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (7-3) in the final.
The Argentinian showed an impressive all-around game to help avenge a heartbreaking loss to the Swiss in the Olympic semi-finals in August.
Federer, who won his hometown event in five of the past six years, was seeking his 77th career title to tie American John McEnroe at fourth on the Open era list.
Del Potro ended a six-match losing streak against the world No. 1 this year, which also included a tough, five-set defeat at the French Open.
