Roger Federer downs Nick Kyrgios to reclaim No.1 spot

Kyrgios forced a minibreak in the deciding tiebreak, but Federer remained steady and sent a short backhand past his opponent on his first match point to clinch the win 6-7 (2-7) 6-2 7-6 (7-5).

Federer, who has won 15 successive matches on grass since being beaten in his opening match in Stuttgart last June, knew he needed victory on Saturday to topple Rafael Nadal from the top of the rankings.

Similarly, however, when Kyrgios lost his serve in game three of the second set, Federer pressed on and struck to break the Australian again, levelling the match comfortably to set up a decider.

Kyrgios grabbed a fast 2-0 lead after unleashing a flying forehand pass on the stretch but Federer rallied back to move 5-4 ahead before a flicked effort at the net confirmed his place in the final 6-7 (2-7) 6-2 7-6 (7-5).

"It is very exciting and I have got another final so it is great news", Federer said.

"We've played so many breakers and it could have gone either way".

Raonic rescued a break point to serve out the first set after edging in front early on, before winning a tie-break easily in the second.

"I tried to make it hard and I don't want any day to be easy for anybody", said Raonic.

That gap proved to be the winning margin as another ruthless serve and volley concluded the contest in one hour and 33 minutes.

"It's nice that it happened but I've other problems", said Federer, playing his first tournament since March.
