Swiss sensation, Roger Federer has claimed a historic landmark in his career after he won his 100th title with a 6-4, 6-4 victory against Stefanos Tsitsipas at the Dubai Tennis Championships on Saturday.
It is a landmark achievement,
for the 37-year old Swiss and 20-time Grand Slam champion as he becomes the
second man to reach 100 career tour titles after America’s Jimmy Connors who
won 109 titles
Federer also avenged his shock defeat by 20-year-old Tsitsipas in the fourth round of the Australian Open in January.
“I’m delighted. It’s great to win my eighth here in Dubai and in combination with my 100th singles title,” Federer said.
“Tough conditions and tough opponents. To win in Marseille and then come here was difficult for Stefanos.”
