Roger Federer reclaims number one ranking in men’s tennis with dramatic win in Stuttgart Open
When you add it all up, Roger Federer has spent 309 weeks – nearly six years – of his career ranked number one in the world.
On Monday, he begins week 310 after reaching the final of the men’s tournament in Stuttgart earlier today. The 20-time Grand Slam winner recovered from losing the opening set to beat Australia’s Nick Kyrgios 6-7 (2-7) 6-2 7-6 (7-5).
This is happening less than two months before Federer’s 37th birthday.
It’s call just unheard of – and fabulous.
It’s the fourth final of the year for Federer who has only played five tournaments all year. He will face Milos Raonic in Sunday’s final and Federer will be vying for his 98th tournament title.
