The Swiss Open is played in Roger Federer’s hometown of Basel, and has always had special significance for him.
As a 12-year-old in 1993, Federer received a medal from Basel champion Michael Stich when he served as a ball boy.
The event has continued to have special meaning for Federer during his historic career, and on Sunday he added another layer of meaning to the tournament.
Top-seeded Federer, 38, won the Swiss Open for a 10th time, beating 20-year-old Alex de Minaur of Australia, 6-2, 6-2, for his fourth title of 2019 and the 103rd title of his career. Jimmy Connors is the all-time men’s leader with 109 tournament wins.
