Roger Federer turns back clock in Dubai – wins!
I’m a huge Roger Federer fan and have always posted about his victories on the blog.
Problem is, there have not been many big victories since he won Wimbledon back in the summer of 2012.
After a disastrous 2013, Federer is showing a return to form.
Federer just rallied past Tomas Berdych 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 on Saturday to win the Dubai Championships for the sixth time. He had beaten Novak Djokovic a day earlier in the semis.
With his first hard-court title since the 2012 Western & Southern Open, Federer broke a tie with John McEnroe for third place on the ATP Tour’s all-time title list in the Open era. Federer has 78 titles, trailing only Jimmy Connors (109) and Ivan Lendl (94). He’s won at least one title 14 years in a row, equaling Lendl’s record.
At 32, he’s not done yet!
