    So endeth this tennis live text. Not just any run-of-the-mill tennis live text but one which captured the moment Roger Federer won his 100th ATP singles title.

    No doubt the family will have all these entries printed and framed in the mansion.

    Well done Roger and here's to a few more.

  2. 'Federer probably won't catch Connors'

    Russell Fuller

    BBC tennis correspondent

    Jimmy Connors' record remains a remarkable one.

    He won his 109th and final tournament in Tel Aviv in the month after turning 37, and that was over six years before finally calling it a day. Federer has played a very similar number of matches to Connors to the age he is now, but did not feel able to play quite as many tournaments in his 20s given the physical demands of the modern game.

    Connors won 15 titles - including the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open - in his standout season of 1974.

    Nothing that Federer achieves should remotely diminish Connors' feat, although the Swiss is playing in what the Grand Slam roll of honour shows to be men's tennis' finest era.

    Is there any way Federer can catch Connors? Probably not, given his age, as he would need to maintain his recent strike rate for another couple of seasons.

    If overtaking Connors' record was of paramount importance, Federer could target the smaller, less competitive, events. But this would come at the expense of the Grand Slams, which remain Federer's overriding motivation.

  5. Federer wins his 100th ATP singles title

    It all started...

    Federer's first title came on 4 February 2001, when he beat Julien Boutter to win the Milan Indoors as a 19-year-old.

    The match report on the BBC Sport website [written by me] described Federer as "one of the up-and-coming stars on the men's tennis scene", and the Swiss spoke of his "high but not impossible" aim of breaking into the world's top 15.

    The titles he has won since have come at another 30 different events and over four continents.

    His most successful tournaments are his hometown event in Basel and the grass-court event in Halle, Germany, both of which he has won nine times.

    Wimbledon is his most successful Grand Slam with eight titles. He has won the Australian Open six times, the US Open five times and the French Open once.

    Fifty of Federer's titles have come in Europe, 24 in North America, 18 in Asia and eight in Australia.

  7. Here's is the moment

    Roger Federer

    Will he now aim for Jimmy Connors' record of 109 singles titles in the Open era?

  8. Federer wins his 100th ATP singles title

    Here's ton-up Roger Federer: "I'm delighted. It's great to win my eighth here in Dubai and in combination with my 100th singles title.

    "Tough conditions and tough opponents. To win in Marseille and then come here was difficult for Stefanos.

    "I don't know if Stefanos was born when I won my first title (he was, just). It's a privilege [to play against possible future champions] because I'll be watching them on the TV. It was a treat to play Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi. I'm sure Stefanos will have a wonderful career.

    "Tennis is in good hands regardless if I'm there or not."
