Roger Federer Reaches 100th Career Final, Eyes Sixth ATP World Title

The 16-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer reached the 100th final of his career today, beating opponent David Ferrer (Ranked #5 in the world) in 85 minutes in the first semifinals of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.

If he continues on his current pace, Federer, at 30 the oldest competitor in the eight-man field, could become the first player to win six ATP World Tour Finals titles.

“It’s an amazing career I’ve had,” Federer told reporters in a courtside interview, after the crowd cheered to acknowledge his making his 100th final. “I don’t know how I do it, 100 finals and I am still walking normally.”
