BASEL, Switzerland — Roger Federer won his hometown tournament for the third straight year on Sunday, beating second-seeded David Nalbandian of Argentina 6-3, 6-4 in the Swiss Indoors final.

The top-seeded Federer hit eight aces and conceded just seven points on his serve all match.

“I’m very happy, everything worked as planned,” Federer said. “It was a match played at a high level.”

It was Federer’s fourth title of the season after victories at the U.S. Open, in Estoril, Portugal; and Halle, Germany. He is 4-4 in finals this season and 57-21 overall.

Another very positive step but he won’t get back his number 1 ATP ranking this year. The fact is that neither of his main ATP foes, Nadal, Djokovic or Murray, were in this Basel tournament. But a title win is not just swiss cheese!
