Roger Federer crushes Grigor Dimitrov to lift Rotterdam Open title

Newly crowned world number one Roger Federer strolled to a third Rotterdam Open title and 97th career singles title as he dismantled Bulgaria’s Grigor Dimitrov in Rotterdam on Sunday.

The 36-year-old Swiss capped off a memorable week, one in which he became the oldest world number one in the sport’s history, as he stormed to a 6-2, 6-2 win in under an hour, extending his domination over a player dubbed as ‘Baby Fed’ as he registered his seventh victory in as many matches.

“What a week it’s been. Absolutely amazing,” Federer said. “The goal was to make the semis and I won the tournament so of course I’m incredibly excited and so, so happy.”

Federer’s third title at the Rotterdam tournament comes a day before he officially returns to the top of the rankings, more than five years after he was last world number one.

He will become the oldest person to hold the number one position when the rankings are updated on Monday. It’s been more than five years since Federer was last number one, and 14 years since he first reached the top spot.
