BASEL, Switzerland -- Roger Federer is playing better tennis these days -- just not quite good enough to win titles again. Fake Jerseys From China . Juan Martin del Potro denied Federer his hometown Swiss Indoors title for the second straight year, winning the final 7-6 (3), 2-6, 6-4 on Sunday. Federer trailed throughout his first final in more than four months, though showed no sign of the back problems which have hampered him during the most difficult season of his career. "I am a winner, I dont take much confidence from losing matches," Federer said. "I am happy about the level of my play, its getting better, but its not in losing where I get much confidence." Federer had hoped that the raucous crowd support in Basel -- where he is a five-time champion -- could help revive his form, but he has still won just one title in the past 14 months. Del Potro beat the player he described as "a big inspiration" for the third straight time, including the 2012 Basel final. "I think Roger is playing well," the top-seeded Argentine said. "For me, he has the perfect game. He played much better when he has the chance to play the top guys." Still, with this loss against fifth-ranked del Potro, Federer has only one victory against a top-10 opponent in 2013. That was back in January, against then-No. 8 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the Australian Open quarterfinals, before a series of shocking defeats against opponents outside the top 50. Federer can take one positive from his Swiss Indoors run, as it all but secured a place in the eight-man lineup at the ATP World Tour Finals in London starting a week from Monday. The sixth-ranked Swiss would confirm his London place at the Paris Masters in midweek if he wins a second-round match against Kevin Anderson of South Africa or Mikhail Youzhny of Russia. Even with a loss, he can only be kept out by an unlikely sequence of victories for several rivals in the points race. "Looking forward to Paris and London, he is going to be a really difficult opponent," del Potro said. "Then he has the time for recovery to be ready for next season." Del Potro earned his 17th career title and fourth this season. He also won at Rotterdam in February, Washington D.C. in August and Tokyo this month, all on his favoured hard-court surface. The 32-year-old Federer still holds a 13-5 career record against del Potro, but last beat him in the London Olympics semifinals at Wimbledon. On Sunday, Federer lost the first set despite playing some of his best tennis this week. After del Potro forced a 5-3 lead with the first break, Federer responded with four straight points on his opponents serve and shouted in triumph. Facing two set points in the next game, Federer hit an ace and won a long, slugging rally that brought a yell of delight from the sold-out crowd of 9,200. Still, del Potro dominated the tiebreaker helped by two net cords in his favour, and clinched the set when Federer sent a forehand wide. Federer levelled the match with much less drama in the second set, after breaking to take a 2-0 lead with a forehand crosscourt winner. He broke again to clinch the set, set up by a pinpoint forehand winner, and got a standing ovation as he headed back to his seat. "Roger started to play much better. In the finals, you cant relax in any moment," del Potro said. Federer quickly wasted the advantage of serving first in the decider, despite saving a break point with a leaping backhand overhead winner after del Potros deft lob. He double-faulted to give del Potro a second opportunity and then hit a forehand long. "I did hand the break over to him a little bit too easily in the third set but I did well today," Federer said. Serving for the match, del Potro hit an ace to set up three match points, and converted the second with strong ground strokes to move Federer around the court. Del Potro improved to 48-13 this season and earned 348,000 euros ($480,000) for the victory. Federer, now 40-14 in 2013, was playing his first final since winning the low-key grass-court event in June at Halle, Germany. He remains tied with John McEnroe on 77 career singles titles, third most during the 45-year Open era. Jimmy Connors has 109 titles and Ivan Lendl has 94. "He is also a better person than he is a tennis player," del Potro said of Federer. "I am very proud to have a good relationship with him." Cheap Jerseys From China .C. -- With a chance to start over and maybe drive in any series he wanted, Juan Pablo Montoya thought long and hard about what mattered most at this stage of his career. Wholesale China Jerseys https://www.fakejerseysfromchina.com/ . -- Creighton apparently has Villanovas number.NEW YORK, N.Y. - Josh Satin and the New York Mets were determined not to lose another long game at Citi Field, especially one that had pushed past 5 hours. No worries. The suddenly smooth-swinging Satin and rookie Andrew Brown took care of it. Brown hit a two-run single with two outs in the 13th inning and the Mets put together a pair of late rallies to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-4 on Monday night, handing the NL West leaders their fourth straight loss. "Walking a team off at the end — theres no greater feeling," Satin said after his second three-hit game in a row. Satin tied it with an RBI single in the ninth off Arizona closer J.J. Putz, his first save opportunity since the ex-Met went on the disabled list May 8. Cody Ross led off the 13th with a homer against David Aardsma (1-0), but the Mets fought back again against the Diamondbacks bullpen. Satin doubled with one out off Josh Collmenter (4-1) and John Buck was intentionally walked, putting the potential winning run on base. Mets pitcher Matt Harvey pinch hit for Aardsma and sacrificed the runners over. After Omar Quintanilla was also intentionally walked, Brown lined an 0-2 pitch into left-centre and was mobbed by teammates near first base well after midnight. Collmenter slammed his glove to the ground and then yelled in frustration as he walked off the field. "Give those guys credit for coming back," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "Its a tough loss." Arizona right fielder Gerardo Parra was injured in the eighth when he hit his face hard on the warning track trying to make a diving catch on Quintanillas triple. The Diamondbacks said a Mets team doctor ruled out a concussion for Parra, a 2011 Gold Glove winner. Wearing black armbands on their jerseys to honour the 19 firefighters who died Sunday in a wildfire about 80 miles northwest of Phoenix, the Diamondbacks fell to 2-5 on a 10-game road trip against the NL East. The Mets won for the fourth time in 12 home games, needing 5 hours, 13 minutes to secure it. "If youre going to be out there that long you might as well win the game," manager Terry Collins said. "We were out of pitching, I can tell you that." The Diamondbacks appeared poised to snap a three-game skid and end a long drought of winless starts by their starters at 23 games (0-10), opening an early 3-0 lead behind Paul Goldschmidts two-run homer, his 20th, and Aaron Hills RBI single in the second off Shaun Marcum. "I thought that was going to be the one that sort of got us going as far as getting our starters a win," Ross said. The bullpen spoiled it. New York tied it in the ninth against Putz. Marlonn Byrd hit a double off the very top of the wall — a call upheld by replay review — and Satin drove him in with a single. Cheap Jerseys. New York had an opportunity to win it there but Buck was thrown out trying to advance to second base on a wild pitch that moved Satin to third, ending the inning. Putz said he felt fine, it was just poor execution against Byrd. "I just didnt finish the pitch," Putz said of the split-fingered fastball that he wanted to bounce in the dirt. Satin was called up when buddy Ike Davis was sent to Triple-A Las Vegas in a deep funk, and the 28-year-old first baseman with just 64 major league at-bats has been the teams hottest hitter the past week. Hes batting .444 (12 for 27) in the last seven games, and earning more playing time. "Josh deserves some at-bats. Hes getting some big hits. It doesnt matter if theyre left-handed or right-handed. Hes getting big hits for us," Collins said. "Ill tell you what: Every team has somebody that surprises you and saves you. And right now, hes our saviour cause this guy has come up and filled a big hole for us." The Mets started their comeback after Wade Miley was lifted following 5 2-3 innings of shutout ball. He was the last Diamondbacks starter to win — on June 5. David Wright had an RBI single off Brad Ziegler in the seventh and Eric Young Jr. a run-scoring double off David Hernandez after a 10-minute delay when Parra got hurt. Parra was able to walk off the field without assistance after being examined by a Diamondbacks trainer and two EMTs right in front of the Arizona bullpen. Quintanilla scored on Youngs two-out double to make it 3-2. Goldschmidt, who was 1 for 9 during a three-game weekend sweep in Atlanta, gave Miley a quick cushion. He hit a 2-1 pitch from Marcum after Hill was hit by a pitch with one out in the first. Hill added an RBI single in the second before Marcum settled in for six innings. Then five Mets relievers shut down Arizona, giving up just four hits until Ross homer. NOTES: The Mets and Diamondbacks each hung a jersey in their dugouts bearing the name "Yarnell" — the locale of the fire — and the No. 19. Those jerseys were shown on the scoreboard at Citi Field during a moment of silence before the national anthem. ... Mets SS Ruben Tejada (strained quadriceps) played his third game for the Gulf Coast League Mets and went 2 for 4 with an RBI while playing all nine innings. Tejada will continue his rehab at Triple-A Las Vegas but will have to earn his way back to the big leagues, Collins said. ... Diamondbacks LHP Patrick Corbin (9-0) faces Mets RHP Jeremy Hefner (2-6) on Tuesday. ' ' '
