Wimbledon champion wins on home soil

 

Wimbledon champion Roger Federer claimed his second title in a week as he lifted
the Swiss Open with a 6-2 6-3 5-7 6-3 victory over Igor Andreev today.

The world number one, who retained his Wimbledon title last Sunday with victory over American Andy Roddick, was made to work hard for the win in Gstaad by the dogged Russian.

It was Federer's first title success in front of his home fans in Switzerland.

World number one Federer was beaten in last year's final by the Czech Republic's Jiri Novak and had been defeated in the final of the Swiss Indoors in his home town Basel in 2000 and 2001.
