Federer defeats Milos Raonic in final of Stuttgart Open tennis tournament

Federer overtook Rafael Nadal at the top of the world rankings by reaching the Stuttgart Open final - which he won against Milos Raonic this afternoon. In the last couple of days I've not dropped serve.

"It's great news that I will be No.1 and I'm really excited to be in the finals here against Milos Raonic", said Federer.

Victory in Germany cements Federer as the World Number One ahead of the defence of his Wimbledon title on the grass of SW19.

Raonic grabbed the opening break of the game with a running forehand down the line before a quick serve and volley tactic sealed the first set advantage.

The workout of the 25-year-old striker included exercises with fit ball and rubber bands, as well as other activities. I can nearly assure you 100 per cent he'll play.

I will have a quiet week before Wimbledon with not many things going on, which is great.

The 36-year-old will regain the world number one ranking on Monday and is playing next week as top seed in Halle as he continues his comeback after skipping the clay-court season.

Raonic, who sat out some clay-court tournaments, including the French Open, with an undisclosed injury last month, fell 6-4, 7-6 (3) to Federer in Sunday's title match on grass. "Of course I'm so happy to have won here, finally, in Stuttgart". I am very happy about the way I played this week.

The duo also had a tight battle to decide the Laver Cup previous year, with Federer just coming out on top after an incredible final set tie-break.

Any potential arrival of Neymar would likely push the Welshman further down the pecking order in the capital. He said: "Cristiano has the advantage that he is in a club for which he has done everything ".

A double fault from the Canadian followed by a return victor from the Swiss set up three match points, with Federer needing only his first as Raonic netted a return. Since the beginning of the 2017 season, Raonic has appeared in two finals: May 2017 at the Instanbul Open and the DelRay Beach Open, where he retired, but he had yet to make an appearance in a tournament final this year.

"It will all depend on how many matches I get next week and then I'll decide what to do in the week before Wimbledon", Raonic said.

"I hope I keep it up at Halle and Wimbledon". "Today didn't go the way I wanted, but I'm looking forward to building on this result".
