Roger Federer explains tearful reaction to winning Swiss Indoors

Roger Federer won his 10th Swiss Indoors Basel title on Sunday. The Swiss entered double digits at a tournament for only the second time by racing past Alex de Minaur 6-2, 6-2. “You saw it hit me again hard winning here in Basel. I don’t take these tournament victories as a normal thing. I take them as something quite unique and special, even though it’s been a lot by now,” Federer said. “Everyone has a different flavour and I try to enjoy them as much as I can at the moment. I think it might be partially reminiscing back at everything that went on this week. Definitely the family, the thought of the team aspect, the family aspect, everything that goes into me still being able to do it today. “People think I just go out there and just do it and have these types of weeks or these types of matches at will. But there’s so much more that goes into it, let alone managing four children, [which] is a challenge, but a good one. Obviously, when I stand there and look back at everything that I had to go through, it really touches me. Along with just the music and the thought of all the ball kids running in already gets me going.”
