Twenty times Grand Slam champion Roger Federer, who is currently participating in Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Championships, is just one win away from clinching 100th tour-level title of his career but the tennis ace believes that the achievement is "still far".
Federer's final hurdle in the tournament is Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece who had shown him the door during the 2019 Australian Open and the Swiss player is well aware of how dangerous Stefanos could prove to be in the deciding match.
“(Stefanos) showed me at the Australian Open, how hard he is to play. I hope I'm going to play well... We're still far from (reaching 100 titles), it seems. I'm just going to try to focus and play good tennis,” ATP quoted Federer, as saying.
The Swiss player had registered a comfortable 6-2, 6-2 victory over Borna Coric and was quite satisfied with his game on the day.
“I was really happy with my play today. In terms of feeling, (this match) was definitely by far the best one (this week), so that was good. I'm sure Borna was feeling it a little bit from his past few matches,” he said.
Federer is slated to take on Stefanos in the final of the Dubai Championship, later today. (ANI)
