But 500 of Federer's will be wiped away next week meaning only a victory at the ATP 500-level Halle open will be good enough for No 1: the runner-up spot and 300 points would see him fall 50 behind Nadal.

Roger Federer celebrated his return to the top of the world rankings by winning the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart. "Today didn't go the way I wanted, but I'm looking forward to building on this result. Congratulations @rogerfederer and thank you Stuttgart".

Australian No.1 Nick Kyrgios has lost his showdown with Roger Federer as the Swiss great reclaimed the world No.1 ranking by booking his place in the final of the Stuttgart Open.

He broke at 1-1 in the opening set and held his nerve in the second, where Raonic double-faulted.

"It's a really positive step forward for me", he said.

"It's a wonderful feeling".

Federer's 78-minute win, sealing his first Stuttgart triumph, was the flawless tonic for the Swiss in the build-up to defending his Wimbledon crown, having extended his unbeaten 12-month sequence in grasscourt matches to 16.

Raonic, who has won eight career ATP titles, reached a career-high No. 3 in the world rankings in November 2016.

Raonic played his last final in May, 2017, losing in Istanbul to Marin Cilic.

But there isn't any guarantee when you get older, especially for the clay-court season.' And yes, the clay, where he played for the last time so far in May 2016. "Maybe I'm lacking the confidence for the right decision still". I thought it was a tough match (like) I expected against Nick.

Raonic has a quick turnaround for his next tournament - the Fever-Tree Championships in London, which begins Monday.

"The most important thing is going to be to focus on my game and if I can do my things well", Raonic told reporters after the match.
