Resurgent Roger Federer wins record-tying fifth Indian Wells title and 90 tournament of his career

This Roger Federer comeback is just a glorious thing. At 35 years, 7 months he became the oldest champion ever at the Indian Wells tournament today. It was a record-tying fifth title in the desert and the 90th tournament of his career. The reigning Australian Open champion trails only Ivan Lendl (94) and Jimmy Connors (109) on the all-time list. He beat Stan Wawrinka 6-4, 7-5. ‘What can I say? This has been a fairytale week once again,’ Federer said after the match. ‘I came here for the first time 17 years ago. To be the champion again, I can’t tell you what it means to me.’ This was Federer’s 22nd title after turning 30. For context, Lendl has the next most with eight. And for what it’s worth, John McEnroe had five and Pete Sampras one.
