With a straight-set victory over Greece's Stefanos Tsitspas at the Dubai Championships, the 37-year-old Swiss becomes the second man in tennis history to reach 100 titles. His first win was in 2001 in Milan.

Roger Federer claimed the 100th ATP title of his career by winning the Dubai Tennis Championships on Saturday (March 2) for the eighth time.


The Swiss tennis legend beat 20-year-old Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-4 6-4 to revenge his ousting by Tsitspas in the round of 16 at the Australian Open in January.

"Well it makes me look back at how it all started and how badly I wanted my first title back in Milan," said Federer following the match, "I was hoping that one day I was going to win a title, just before that Milan final, and I did and I'm sitting here today having won a hundred is, I don't know it's disbelief." 

The 20-times Grand Slam champion became the second man in the Open Era to claim 100 titles after American Jimmy Connors who won 109.

Here is a look at some of the best social media reaction to Federer's century of victories
