Roger Federer was not fully satisfied for his straight-sets win over Jan-Lennard Struff at the Swiss Indoors in Basel. The world no. 3 was down a break in the first set and then was able to recover. Analyzing the match, the 37-year-old said: 'I'm happy that I improved after a rocky, slow start today, to play well after that.
I think the crowd was really into it. They were excited that I came back from being a break down. I'm excited for the next round, so I'm actually quite happy how I'm playing right now.' Federer is not satisfied with his performances on serve: 'I don‘t know why I can‘t play a match without being broken anymore, it happened to me in Shanghai already, I have to go through statistics of this match, maybe I‘ll manage to go through next match without being broken.' At the same time, Federer feels there are some positives: 'There was a time this year when my returns were really bad, think it was in Cincinnati.
Nowadays I see the ball clear, I have a good feeling, this also encourages me for the upcoming match. The crowd was again awesome tonight, I appreciate it a lot.' Federer defeated Daniil Medvedev in the semi-final in another straight-sets match.
