BASEL, Switzerland---Roger Federer mastered
Rafael Nadal in their first meeting in almost two
years to win the Swiss Indoors final 6-3, 5-7, 6-
The top-seeded Federer ended a five-match
losing streak against Nadal, including the last time
they played for a title in May 2013.
With the match finely poised in the deciding
set, Federer hit a series of ground strokes for winners
and broke Nadal s serve for a 5-3 lead.
Federer created his second match point with a
backhand volley winner and clinched it when
Nadal s service return flew long.
Nadal still has a 23-11 career hold over Federer,
including 14-7 in tournament finals.
Federer s sixth title this season is also the seventh
of his career at his hometown event in Basel.
The Swiss Indoors, where Federer was once a
ball boy, is now the fifth tour event he was won
at least seven times. He has eight titles at the Wim-
bledon warm-up tournament in Halle, Germany.
Federer dominated the first half of the match,
finding the lines with his ground strokes and com-
manding at the net, but he was broken at 5-5 in
the second set and Nadal forced a third.
The old rivals had not faced each other on court
since Nadal won an Australian Open semifinal in
three straight sets in January 2014. Their previous
title match was another Nadal victory at the Rome
Masters 2 ½ years ago.
Federer broke Nadal for a 3-2 lead, creating the
chance with a backhand passing shot and taking
it with a fierce forehand winner. (AP)

FIA boss Todt compares Ferrari veto to 'having a gun'
MEXICO CITY---The president of Formula
One s governing body called Ferrari s veto
power over regulations changes "like hav-
ing a gun" and said he was disappointed
the Italian team recently blocked a cost
cap for customer engines.
"It is necessary we look after the interests
of the small teams," FIA President Jean
Todt said Saturday at the Mexican Grand
To help small teams cut costs and com-
pete, Todt wants to introduce in 2017 a
cheaper engine than those supplied by
Mercedes, Ferrari, Renault and Honda.
Formula One switched in 2014 from V8
engines to very complicated and expensive
V6 turbo power units. Mercedes has dom-
inated ever since, with two championships
by Lewis Hamilton.
Todt tried to fend off future Ferrari vetoes,
even if the move is in the carmaker s historic
right under F1 rules.
"A veto is like having a gun in your
pocket, and you have to be careful when
you use a gun," Todt said. "It has to be
determined that there is something that
goes against their interests. Trying to sug-
gest a customer engine is not against their
Ferrari was the only team to block the
cost cap proposal and this week defended
the move. The team has dramatically
improved its performance in 2015 with
three victories and Sebastian Vettel sitting
in second place in the driver s standings.
Ferrari team principal Maurizio Arriv-
abene on Friday said the veto was a business
decision to protect commercial property.
"Why do we have to justify it more?"
Arrivabene said. "You have research and
development costs that somehow you
have to recover. I don t find any com-
mercial entity all around the world that
is giving their product out to the market
or free." (AP)
