Since 1743 Moët & Chandon is synonym of glamour and success and has been for a long time supporting major world sport events. Last week it was the partner of the Swiss Indoors for the second year. There some of the best tennis players competed to win the 500 ATP tournament at the Jakobshalle in Basel.

On Sunday it is the ambassador of the champagne brand, who won the trophy! Roger Federer defeated in two sets 6/2-6/2 the Belgian player David Goffin. It was its 6th time winning in Basel and the shortest final of the Swiss Indoors. Federer is only a short step away from becoming number 1 again. Some say he may achieve it before the end of the year. He is now competing at Paris/Bercy and then heading to London for the Masters before playing the final of the Coupe Davis.
