Federer tops Wawrinka in all-Swiss final

He would stay on the scene for some more time, and as long as he can win titles, why should he call it quits?

Some more singing might have also been on the cards for Federer on Saturday, after Australian Nick Kyrgios was forced to pull out of their quarterfinal at the ATP tournament in Indian Wells, California with illness.

Nobody else would have dreamed this up either, although Federer did have a premonition late previous year, in the midst of his extended layoff because of knee problems. Previous year I didn't win any titles. "The change is dramatic, and it feels great", he added.

The speedy progress means 10th-ranked Federer will have to reassess his 2017 goals.

The "Backhand Boys" made their debut last January during the Australian Open, with their raw rendition getting its fair share of laughs and critics. "I forgot how tough the draw actually was", Federer said of the quarter that included him along with world number two Novak Djokovic and number six Rafael Nadal, along with former US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro, risky young Australian Nick Kyrgios and talented German Alexander Zverev.

Coming into the final, Federer had faced only one break point on his serve and Wawrinka managed just four points while returning in the first set. It's one of my favorite tournaments.

In stifling heat, Federer saw off Wawrinka in an hour and 20 minutes to claim a 90th career title - 19 short of Connors' record collection.

Finally Wawrinka found himself serving to save the match.

"Overall I played a good match", Federer said, per the BNP Paribas Open. "So congratulations on your comeback and congratulations on today".

With Federer winning the Australian Open and Wawrinka claiming last September's U.S. Open, Sunday's final will bring together the two most recent grand slam champions. 'It's a tough loss. "Sure I'd love to be number one again". "It is maybe not as surprising as Australia but still unbelievably surprising for me that I was able to back it up here in America". "I was really, really struggling with my knee".

"But I still lost the final", he said.
