Federer Wins 100th Title

 

Roger Federer has made history by becoming on the second man to win 100 titles after he defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-4, 6-4 on Saturday at the Dubai Championships.

It was also the 20-time Grand Slam winner’s record eighth trophy at the Aviation Club.

The Swiss played scintillating tennis Tsitsipas had no answer for.

“It’s so special to win my eighth here combined with 100,” Federer said.

“I had tough opponents all the way through — right up to Stefanos today.

“He’s already having a great career, the game is in good hands.”

Federer joins Jimmy Connors (109) as the only other player to have won 100 titles.
