Federer comes from behind to beat Istomin in Basel

Roger Federer came from behind to beat Denis Istomin 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in the second round of the Swiss Indoors on Wednesday.

Federer will qualify for the finals, which take place at London's O2 Arena in November, if he picks up his sixth title in Basel.

The Swiss had to recover from a slow start against Istomin, but won the last five games of the deciding set to book his place in the quarter-final.

"I stared poorly, making too many errors, especially on the forehand," said Federer. "I was risking too much and it was not paying off.

"I had to cut that risk and was a bit lucky to win. I started fighting back and got better as the match went on.

"I'm happy that I was able to turn it around, I needed a match like this."

Reigning champion Juan Martin del Potro made a solid start to his defence with a 6-4 6-4 win over Finnish-born Swiss youngster Henri Laaksonen.

In other matches, Paul-Henri Mathieu of France beat Denis Kudla of the United States 6-4, 7-5, and Canadian Vasek Pospisil won 6-4, 6-4 against Robin Haase of the Netherland, who was a finalist in Vienna on Sunday.
