Federer wins ‘special’ 100th title by beating Tsitsipas

Clinical Federer dispatches Tsitsipas to secure 100th ATP title

By defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships final it gave him the 100th singles title of his career on the ATP Tour.

The Swiss 20-time Grand Slam victor bagged his eighth Dubai title against Tsitsipas, but he didn't have it all his own way: the 20-year-old matched Federer work all the way in both sets but in the end, the experience of the 37-year-old proved too much for the youngster.

"I'm delighted. It's great to win my eighth here in Dubai and in combination with my 100th singles title", Federer said.

Previously Tsitsipas won his only previous meeting with Federer, completing a four-set victory over the Swiss in a round of 16 match at this year's Australian Open.

Federer had been waiting since October and the Swiss Indoors - his 99th win - to reach the landmark, yet an assured run to the final was followed by a stylish display against Tsitsipas on Saturday.

Tesla Stock Plunges While Analysts Question Model 3 Pricing Plan
As of the fourth quarter, Tesla said it recently opened 27 new locations, bringing its total of stores and service centers to 378. Thursday was the third time this year that Tesla lowered the price on the Model 3, which recently started at $42,900.

We have seen eight good holds from the Greek but that wasn't enough for a more favorable result, losing the crucial points and missing the opportunity to win back-to-back titles after Marseille and celebrate that top-10 debut with the trophy in his hands.

"It's been a long, wonderful journey and it all started as a junior world champion", Federer said. "Tough conditions and tough opponents". It was a treat to play Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi.

Three winners pushed the Swiss 40-0 and he sealed the deal when Stefanos netted a forehand, starting a massive celebration of what has been one of the most significant titles of his glorious career so far.

"It's an honour playing Roger..." "Now sharing the court, it's even better. You're doing really well".
