It”s finals time and we have some very familiar faces in action. Roger Federer is seeking his 7th title of the season while Del Potro and Tsonga continue their late charge for a spot in the ATP Tour Finals.
ATP Basel Final
Roger Federer v Juan Martin Del Potro
They meet for the 4th time this season and are officially the hottest players on tour since the US Open. Federer has reeled off 9 straight wins since losing to Del Potro at the US Open – and looking to claim back to back titles after his win in Shanghai. Del Potro has been no slouch either. The Argentine has won 12 of his last 13 matches with Federer the only man to beat him in that stretch. Del Potro got the better of Federer at the US Open but the Swiss maestro bounced back to edge out his rival in Shanghai. Outside of dropping the first set to Mannarino Federer has been in stunning form this week. He made Goffin look like a Challenger Tour player last night. Del Potro served lights out against Cilic making 70% of 1st serves and will need a similar performance if he is to deny Federer a 8th Basel title. With only 1 of their last 10 encounters ending in straight sets The Wolf is predicting another epic! Federer in 3 sets.

The Wolf has continuously mentioned Tsonga’s ability to play on fast indoor surfaces and this year has been no exception. He claimed back to back titles in Rotterdam and Marseille earlier in the year and is seeking a repeat tonight after charging his way to the title in Antwerp a week ago. 11 of his 16 career titles have come indoors and you simply do not want to be backing against him tonight. He is 2-0 lifetime against Pouille and beat his countryman in straight sets in the Marseille final. The Wolf is expecting a repeat.
