109 - Connors (109) is the only player to have won more men's singles tournaments in the Open Era than Federer.
Even if Roger has always stated that that record is not important for him, it's now clear that even if he will turn 38 at the this coming August, given his exceptional form and if the Swiss win some more titles this year he has a shot at catching the American. I won my first title in Milan.
"Welcome to the "Triple Digit" tournament victory club", Connors said in a Twitter post to Federer, "I've been a bit lonely - glad to have the company!" "I'm sure Stefanos will have a wonderful career", Federer added.
Tsitipas, who won a second ATP Tour title in Provence last week, will face in-form Gael Monfils, recent victor in Rotterdam. This is where I've won so many of them.
"I was just trying to take care of my serve, that's really all you can do against John", Kyrgios said. "Tennis is in good hands regardless of if I'm there or not", he continued.
"It´s so special to win my eighth here combined with 100", Federer said. But I'm not. I think this number proves that. "It was pretty windy out here, not easy conditions, and his game actually I think fits the wind quite well, so it was not easy", Zverev said.
"He was very aggressive, didn't give me any time today".Читайте также: Victor claims $1.5 billion lottery jackpot in US
Tsitsipas, who will enter the top 10 for the first time, stood firm until 4-4 in the second set before Federer, 37, changed gear to seal the decisive break and close the victory.
"I would like to personally congratulate him for the 100".
Having become so accustomed to claiming grand slam titles, Federer went five years without one until defeating Nadal in a Melbourne thriller in 2017.
Federer broke in the opening game of the final, but had to battle to claim the opening set.
" I'm just happy I'm still healthy". Not for me. I'm just happy I'm still healthy.
Federer, who's now No. 7 in men's singles tennis took home the title in two sets, after a so-so start in the tournament, one of the world's greatest tennis players got in his stride and finished the tournament in style.
It was nip and tuck in the second set but Federer broke in the ninth game for a 5-4 lead before holding to love to wrap up a memorable achievement.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
