Federer wins in style
Federer is now seventh in the Champions Race
Federer is now seventh in the Champions Race

Switzerland's Roger Federer won his third title of the year when he clinched the CA Trophy in Vienna.

The sixth seed outclassed Czech fifth seed Jiri Novak 6-4 6-1 3-6 6-4.

The win saw the 21-year-old move up from 10th to seventh in the Champions race.

It certainly boosted his chances of securing one of the eight tickets to the season-ending Masters Cup in Shanghai.

It also signalled a resounding return to form for Federer after a slump over the summer following his last tournament victory in Hamburg in May.

Federer had never survived past the last four in his previous three attempts on the hard courts here in Vienna, but this time he has looked in a class of his own.

He thrashed fourth seed Carlos Moya in the semi-final and never looked in real danger of losing the upper hand in Sunday's final against the in-form Czech.
