Following his eighth Basel title today, Roger Federer moved into sole possession of second place on the ATP’s Open Era title leaderboard with 95.
Federer is now *just* 14 behind Jimmy Connors for the Open Era record. Federer has 7 titles this year after Basel, so he’ll need to keep that pace for the next two years or win 5 each of the next three years (or 4 each of the next 4 years!).
Federer also moves 20 titles ahead of rival Rafael Nadal.
