"I'm starting to really get to understand the conditions and it was consistent, my most consistent match by far".

"I can play only a certain number of tournaments but of course: titles are one of the reasons why I still play, besides fans, and because I like playing tennis".

"He finished late last night and maybe his legs were a bit heavy".

"I'd love to see now what kind of results I can have - but it went his way today, this is how it ended".

Federer fought back from 5-2 down in the first set to force a tie-break, where he began to take control of the match as he converted seven of eight points to snatch the lead on the hour mark.

Kei Nishikori lost his ninth consecutive ATP final after Kevin Anderson won 6-3 7-6 to claim the Erste Bank 500 title in Vienna.

"I was just hoping to win a few matches. But now being in the final, it's an unbelievable achievement for me". "I can not wait to play tomorrow".

Just as Federer looked to be settling into form after almost 30 unforced errors in the opening set, more disruption ensued.

But with Simon serving at 4-5, the Swiss great broke the Frenchman's serve for the fifth time in the match to secure the victory in two hours and 34 minutes. In the quarters, Federer found himself in 2-5 trouble after another sluggish start, with Simon quickly finding his range against the number three.

The 28-year-old outsider fired 26 aces, with his impenetrable service game laying the basis for a surprise win.

Simon responded, however, breaking Federer three times in the second set to force a third.

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. "I'm not sure. But anyway, I'm excited", Federer said.

"I think I had very good tactics against him - but I still can't believe this".
