Federer's next opponent is seventh-seeded Daniil Medvedev, who beat fourth-seeded Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-4, 3-6, 6-3.

In the third, Copil kept pace, with Zverev faltering on serve in the 10th game and his opponent taking advantage with a cross-court volley victor to advance amid cheers for the underdog.

"It's been a magical week for me, a dream run for me", Federer said, prior to moving onto his traditional post-final pizza party with ballkids - of which he was one here two decades ago.

The Japanese's efforts were further undermined by 23 unforced errors and three double faults and though he improved enough to force a second set tiebreak, Anderson held his nerve and sealed the win with an ace.

Federer hinted after his latest victory that he may not play at the Swiss Indoors in the future.

The world No. 1 needed just over an hour as he defeated the No. 7 seed 6-1, 6-4.

The government, through these consultations, places its assessment on issues and suggests possible solutions. It added that the government has "never made public the subject matter of those consultations".

World No 11 Nishikori's luckless run means that a win in Memphis in 2016, his second career title, remains his most recent. "I was a bit unsure of my serve and his return is excellent", said Federer.

Copil will be competing in the biggest match of his career after overcoming second seed Zverev, with the Romanian having dropped just one set this week.

"This was nearly a turnaround week for me", the Swiss legend said. Federer quickly fell behind 3-0 to open the match but clawed back to 5-5 with a break after squandering four previous break points.

"It will be a challenge but I'm excited to see how I feel tomorrow, playing a young guy", said Federer. The inspired Romanian's booming serves and lobs created tension St Jakobshalle but the local favourite won five straight games to complete another memorable win.

There was an early warning when Simon broke in the second game and raced to a 5-2 lead. But a quick match point opportunity two games later allowed Federer to close as his opponent sent a return over the baseline.

Nishikori dominated on serve as he beat Kukushkin for the eighth time in eight meetings.
