The magnificent Swiss Indoors final countdown meant a reference to the culture in tennis, which includes respect and fairness. The Argentinian Juan-Martin Del Potro, who has been in continuous good form since the US Open, praised his vanquisher: «If I will still be playing such masterful tennis at the age of 36, then I will be perfectly happy». The South American, who wishes to return in 2018, still has real chances to qualify for the Masters in London. The match, announced as a blockbuster final by the ATP World Tour, generated great interest worldwide. On Saturday night, the ice hockey star Roman Josi, the captain of the Predators in the NHL, was in Nashville, looking for and finding final tickets for friends in Bern. The one responsible for this run on tickets was of course local matador Roger Federer, who after winning the last point looked visibly relieved. All things considered, his triumph was deserved based on his performance. Federer congratulated «Delpo» on his great run since the US Open. The world number 2 also thanked his team, led by coach Severin Lüthi. The player’s championship haul in this season (7 titles in 11 tournaments) is breath-taking and the product of masterly timing both in training and off-court. In its Monday edition, the Zurich broadsheet «Tages-Anzeiger» describes the super-technician as a «workman», who not only relies on his artistic play on court, but can also roll up his sleeves when the situation requires it to win the point. In any case, work was waiting for Federer. Before he received the cup from cyclist Fabian Cancellara, he gave the ball girls and boys their medals. Later, the star offered the delighted youngsters in the stadium catacombs as per tradition a slice of pizza each.
