Roger Federer beats Stefanos Tsitsipas to win Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships

Federer has most options but Djokovic can accomplish everything- Agassi

Tennis great Roger Federer has become the second player to win 100 ATP singles titles tournaments with a straight sets victory over Greek wonderkid Stefanos Tsipitas 6-4,6-4 in the final of the Dubai Open on Saturday.

Federer, now eight times a Dubai champion, settled a score with Tsitsipas, who had defeated the Swiss maestro in the Australian Open. I don't know if Stefanos was born when I won my first title.

"It's been a hard week for me, tough opponents throughout but credit to Stefanos as well, he played a great tournament".

Jimmy Connors is the other male player to reach the 100 title milestone, and he ended his career on 109 titles.

The Bucks are now 48-14 and two-and-a-half games ahead of the Toronto Raptors for top spot in the Eastern Conference. ESPN reported the buyout will guarantee the 7-foot playmaker $6.7 million of his $16 million salary next season.

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.

Tsitsipas, who defeated Federer in the fourth round of the Australian Open and won the Open 13 in Marseille last week, was unable to stop Federer from making history.

While Roger Federer was enjoying one of his best days on a tennis court, it led to James Blake experiencing a different type of moment in his post-playing career.

Federer quickly put the 20-year-old under pressure and a ruthless forehand created two break-point opportunities in the opening game, the first of which was taken as Tsitsipas allowed a relatively straightforward shot to drift wide. Tsitsipas made it to the final round with a 4-6, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4) win over Gael Monfils. Federer held serve to love to join Connors in the century club. I'd be happy with 100 (match) wins... "It all started as a junior world champion". "It's been great. I wouldn't do it any differently".
