Roger Federer Creates History By Winning 100th Career Title

Nick Kyrgios needs to improve fitness to win Grand Slams Former player Jim Courier

As well as his record haul of Grand Slam titles, which includes a record eight wins at Wimbledon, Federer has won a record six ATP Finals and topped the rankings for a record 310 weeks-including 237 straight.

Roger Federer won his 100th career singles title on Saturday, defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Dubai final.

Federer partially avenged his loss to the 20-year-old Tsitsipas, a rising star from Greece, in the last 16 of the Australian Open in January.

The question on everybody's lips now is whether or not he will overtake the great Jimmy Connor's haul of 109 titles, a feat that Federer has called "extraordinary". "Most of what I said on him was positive", Nadal said at the Indian Wells before flat-batting Kyrgios' social media sprays from the past week.

"I don't rest between Slams all the time, like people think I might be".

Federer said post-match: "A lot of people always ask me about, 'Are you going to go for 109?'". My family, they all support me for so, so long and I can't thank them enough. This number proves why this was a very exciting week for me.

Speaking in the aftermath of his landmark victory, the Swiss superstar called the achievement a "dream come true" and said he was feeling a "deep satisfaction" with the result. I'm proud about the things I have done and tonight was a very special evening, playing Stefanos and seeing the future coming up in the tennis game, it's part of this whole journey.

During his pre-tournament press conference, Federer was quizzed on if this will be his last visit to the California event as a player. "I'm just happy I'm still healthy".

Tsitsipas admitted he had few chances in the rout. It was not easy, the conditions were hard and I had tough opponents all the way, right up to Stefanos today.

"It felt like he was controlling everything on his own terms".

Federer, who had been stuck on 99 titles since triumphing at his hometown Basel tournament in October, broke Tsitsipas in the first game of the match and saved two break points at 5-4 to claim the first set in 36 minutes.

ACAPULCO, Mexico (AP) - Nick Kyrgios won the Mexico Open on Saturday night for his fifth ATP Tour title, beating second-seeded Alexander Zverev 6-3, 6-4 in the hardcourt event at The Princess Mundo Imperial. The second set was more even before his young Greek opponent lost his...
