Federer Wins His 103rd Title


Roger Federer picked up his 4th title of 2019 by taking Basel with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Alex de Minaur.Ā  He is now 6-titles away from tying Jimmy Connors’ all-time men’s record of 109 singles titles.Ā  Federer can likely catch Connors if he plays beyond 2020.Ā  Even if Federer gets to 104 before 2019 closes, I do not think anyone can bank on Federer winning 6-more titles between now and November 2020.Ā  Still, Federer beating Stefanos Tsitsipas in the semifinal round and de Minaur in the final round winning 24 games to their 12 combined games makes Federer’s longevity look pretty strong.Ā  Federer is 38 while Tsitsipas and de Munaur combine for 41-years.

A bit old but the question is alive
