Roger Federer has beaten Milos Raonic in the Stuttgart Open final, claiming his 98th singles career title in the process.

The 36-year-old won 6-4 7-6 against his Canadian opponent, having previously seen off Nick Kyrgios in the semis.

It is the first time Federer has won in Stuttgart, and he will return to being world No. 1 as a result.

Federer could have the opportunity to win his 100th title at Wimbledon, if he wins in Halle next week.

The event in Stuttgart was Federer's first in two and a half months, since the Miami Open in March.

"I played very well throughout the tournament, it is a great comeback for me. I am so happy to have won," said Federer.

"I was hoping to play a couple matches here but I have played four and won them all. The last few have been very good.

"I hope I keep it up at Halle and Wimbledon. It will give me a boost as well being back at world number one."

Johanna Konta overcame a rain delay to secure her place in the final of the Nature Valley Open in Nottingham for the second successive year with a 6-2 6-3 victory against Donna Vekic.

In the second match on court, the British number one breezed through the opening set in half-an-hour before, with Vekic having called for the trainer and looking ready to go for further treatment, the players were forced off by rain.

After around an hour delay, Konta, who had been defeated by Vekic in the 2017 final, regained her composure to move 3-1 ahead.

However, the 21-year-old Croatian recovered to break back and level at 3-3.

World number 22 Konta, though, immediately regained the momentum against Vekic's serve before a hold put her within sight of the final, and she then broke again on a first match-chance.

Top-seed Ashleigh Barty awaits in Sunday's final after the Australian beat Naomi Osaka of Japan 6-3 6-4.
