Last weekend, Federer won his 100th career title in Dubai and the 37-year-old has been in a reflective mood.
“What I like about [the 100th title] is that it gives some time to reflect on these great moments and great titles that are all important to me,” said Federer.
“It’s an achievement I never thought I’d make and something I only started thinking about in the past nine months.
“When you get to No. 98, No. 99, you start to think it’d be a pity to retire without hitting 100. It was nice to get there on the first attempt in a final.”
