Roger Federer claims Title #100!!!
Roger Federer has made history. Last week, the 37-year-old became just the second player in the Open Era to secure his 100th tour-level title, joining former World No. 1 Jimmy Connors, who lifted 109 trophies.
Federer accomplished the feat at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, defeating reigning Next Gen ATP Finals champion Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-4, 6-4 in the final.
With his eighth title in Dubai, Federer owns eight or more trophies at four tournaments.
