And Simona Halep's chance to return to No. 1 in the world fell apart against Karolina Pliskova.
A marathon 14-minute game followed but Federer used all his experience to grab the break - his fifth of the match - and serve out to love for the victory.
"I thought it was an interesting match", Federer said. I don't know. I couldn't put a second serve anymore.

The focus will also be on stumper-batsman, Rishabh Pant , who looks set for a Team India berth at the World Cup. Yuvraj Singh said, "I can't really say about (World Cup) selection but Rishabh was outstanding today".
Anderson refused to buckle and when he finally managed to get on the board by breaking the former world number one's serve, he was sarcastically applauded by some sections of what was a predictably pro-Federer crowd. Federer's 3-0 against Tiafoe, with one of those wins a five-set victory at the US Open almost two years ago, and has never faced Shapovalov.
"I can go in there and play with freedom and try to play my best tennis", she said. She will play the victor of Thursday's late match between No. 2 Simona Halep and No. 5 Karolina Pliskova.

"You have to go out there and embrace it". Play was to begin at 1 p.m.in a women's semifinal match between 12th-seeded Ashleigh Barty and 21st-seeded Anett Kontaveit - they were delayed an hour at the start because of rain, then for another 2 1/2 hours after getting only two games in before the next wave of rain arrived. The Swiss tennis star easily won the first set in 26 minutes. Kontaveit fended off one match point with a forehand drop shot, but was ousted by an ace on the following point.
Auger-Aliassime won two qualifying matches before taking another five in a row to advance to the final four.
"It was a very long day".
Federer is 37 years old.
Federer struck the decisive blow at 4-4, however, winning a marathon game of 22 points and clinching the break with a fortuitous backhand return down the line.
