LONDON (AP) Roger Federer made light work of Richard Gasquet to clinch his first win at the ATP World Tour Finals, defeating the Frenchman 6-4, 6-3 to boost his chances of making the semifinals on Thursday.
Federer quickly took control and broke Gasquet four times in the match. The Frenchman hit only 11 winners and looked inhibited throughout.
Federer was not having a great day either - he had 30 unforced errors - but prevailed on important points as Gasquet converted only one of his six break points. Federer needed five match points to earn his 43rd Finals win.
