Federer Destroys Dimitrov to win Rotterdam Open

Roger Federer won his third title at Rotterdam

"I can't believe it".

Federer will leapfrog 31-year-old Rafael Nadal to No. 1 when the rankings are updated on Monday.

This allowed Federer to win six consecutive games, which closed the first set and led with a break in the second. We are pretty happy about the week, we played so many good teams, especially finally beating the undefeated team.

"What a fantastic week", top seed Federer said. Pete Sampras is a distant second with 286 weeks at the top. The Bulgarian tennis star is one of the up and comers on tour.

"Sometimes at the beginning you get there just because you play so well". When you're older you have to work double the amount, you have to wrestle it back from someone who's worked hard to get there. "So this one maybe means the most to me throughout my career".

Roger Federer has marked his return to the summit of the world rankings with a routine victory over Grigor Dimitrov in the Rotterdam Open final.

Semifinal: Federer bt Andreas Seppi 6-3, 7-6 (3).

Thursday evening's highlight will feature Federer hoping to take the penultimate step towards regaining the number one ranking, becoming the oldest man by three years to own the honour.

But a stunning 13 months has seen him win nine titles on his way back to the top, including two Australian Opens and last year's Wimbledon.

"I saved the best for last", added Federer, who has a 12-0 record on the season, before jetting home to his family.

Yesterday, Federer dropped his first set of the week against the aggressive Haase but regained control to ease to victory as the Dutchman struggled with a back injury.

It's definitely one of those weeks I will never forget in my life.
