Roger Federer swept aside Andy Roddick to reach the final of the Swiss Indoors in Basle.
Roddick had five break opportunities himself, but could only convert one against the 16-time Grand Slam winner.
Instead the Swiss dominated on serve, winning 94% of points on his first serve compared to his opponent’s 71%.
Federer will go head to head with defending champion Novak Djokovic for the title – in a re-run of the 2009 final – after the second-seeded Serbian saw off fellow countryman Viktor Troicki 7-6 (7/4) 6-4 in one hour 37 minutes.
Both players broke once each in the opening set before a single break helped Djokovic close out the second.
