Roger Federer Wins Rotterdam Open Against Grigor Dimitrov

Roger Federer Wins Rotterdam Open Against Grigor Dimitrov

At 36 most tennis players have retired or are at least winding down their careers. Roger Federer though is not most tennis players, in fact no one is like him, and he's won yet another tournament in the ATP Rotterdam Open.

Earlier this week Roger Federer reached the quarter final of the Rotterdam Open, hardly newsworthy in itself considering the amount of quarter finals the Swiss ace must have been in, but in becoming world number one again he made the headlines.

At 36 Federer took over from Rafael Nadal at top of the world rankings, having won the Australian Open champion once again earlier this year, to confirm himself as the oldest number one ever when the new rankings come out on Monday.

Having beaten Robin Hase in the quarter final and then Andreas Seppi in the semi final he today faced Grigor Dimitrov today and dispatched the Bulgarian 6-2, 6-2 to claim the 97th ATP tournament in his career, a ridiculous statistic.

Has any one man dominated a sport in such a brilliant way for so long?

One day Federer will have retired and the world of tennis will be all the worse for it. Until that time let's hope he keeps winning and manages to beat Jimmy Connors record of 109 singles titles, he's not far off.
