Roger Federer with the Dubai trophy his 100th title

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.

With the win, Federer becomes only the second player after American Jimmy Connors, whose total singles wins stands at 109, to reach the milestone. "I have loved every minute". He finished career with one win in 11 tires versus Federer. "Seriously, I'm trying to get there", he said. "A lot of people always emphasize all the Slams and all these things".

Federer has won at least one ATP trophy in almost every season since his first title, missing out only in 2016 when he suffered a knee injury. This is where I've won so many of them, been around for so long. But I'm not. I think this number proves that.

Federer lost to the 20-year-old Tsitsipas, a rising star from Greece, in the last 16 of the Australian Open in January. Novak created just two break points, converting both but dropping serve four times from nine opportunities he offered to Roger, falling 7-2 in the tie break to send the youngster over the top and towards the sixth ATP title.

"I'm actually pretty happy for him, as well".

In January, she was named president of the Treasury Board and also Minister of Digital Government. Those concerns have been augmented by the views expressed by my constituents and other Canadians.

"Then in Basel, in my home tournament, I wanted to win so bad". It was a more severe Tsitsipas in the second set, going for the lines, forcing his idol to come up with the shots. "That's a good combination to win".

Tsitipas, who won a second ATP Tour title in Provence last week, will face in-form Gael Monfils, recent victor in Rotterdam. "I'm very proud that I'm Greek". I'd be happy with 100 (match) wins.

"He just seemed like having control over everything he was doing, taking the ball super early, on the rise, giving me no time to prepare. He was just very, very aggressive".

It's another quick turnaround for Tsitsipas, who makes his way to California for the Masters 1000 event at Indian Wells, where he will once again proudly represent his country.

"Getting to 100 is completely insane, I don't know how he got there".
