Roger Federer's Tournament Victories 101 and Counting!

The great Roger Federer never seems to age! Indeed, he is still playing at the highest level at the tender age of 37. Federer has won a tour title every year between 2001 and 2019 except for 2016 where he suffered from injuries. Here's a list of all the tournaments the G.O.A.T has won.

2001 (1)

Milan

February 2001 saw the first Tour title of Federer's illustrious career. Federer defeated Julien Boutter 6-4 6-7 6-4 in Milan to take the first of his 100 titles. It's incredible to think when looking at this grainy footage that the Swiss would still be going strong 18 years later. Federer also recorded one of the most memorable victories of his career in 2001 as he beat 7 times champion Pete Sampras at Wimbledon.

2002 (3)

Sydney,Hamburg, Vienna

Although Federer managed to claim some titles in 2002, he was still waiting for a big breakthrough in the Grand Slam events. It wouldn't come in 2002 though, as he failed to progress past the 4th round in any of the main events. Still, at just 20-years of age, Federer was showing signs of what might be to come.

2003 (7)

Marseille, Dubai, Munich, Halle, Wimbledon, Vienna, Tennis Masters Cup

2003 was the year things really started to come together as he claimed his first Grand Slam title at Wimbledon. Federer beat Australia's Mark Philippoussis 7-6 6-2 7-6 to start a run of dominance at the All England Club. Another notable victory was in the year-end Tennis Masters Cup where Federer beat Andre Agassi 6-3 6-0 6-4 to take home the trophy.

2004 (11)

Australian Open, Dubai, Indian Wells, Hamberg, Halle, Wimbledon, Gstaad, Canada, US Open, Bangkok, Masters Cup

This was the year Federer really strengthened his grip on men's tennis. The Swiss claimed 3 of the 4 Grand Slams and won 11 titles in total, the second best season of his career. The year began with his first Australian Open victory, beating Marat Safin 7-6 6-4 6-2, before going on to win his first US Open by defeating LLeyton Hewitt 6-0 7-6 6-0.

2005 (11)

Doha, Rotterdam, Dubai, Indian Wells, Miami, Hamberg, Halle, Wimbledon, Cincinnati, US Open, Bangkok.

Federer won another 11 titles in 2005, securing his 3rd Wimbledon title in a row and 2 US Open title. He was not able to defend his Australian Open title though, as he lost to Marat Safin in the semi-finals. Things got better for Federer at the French as he made his first semi-final before losing to a young Rafael Nadal who (of course) won the tournament.

2006 (12)

Doha, Australian Open, Indian Wells, Miami, Halle, Wimbledon, Canada, US Open, Tokyo, Madrid, Basel, Masters Cup

The best year of Federer's career in terms of tournament victories. 2006 started off well with victory over Marcos Baghdatis 5-7 7-5 6-0 6-2 to win his 2nd Australian Open title. Things went from strength to strength from there, with the Swiss bagging himself Wimbledon and US Open titles.

2007 (8)

Australian Open, Dubai, Hamburg, Wimbledon, Cincinnati, US Open, Basel, Masters Cup

After 3 consecutive seasons with 11 or more titles, you'd be tempted to look at 2007 as a bad year. However, Federer still managed to win three Grand Slams and made the final of the French Open where he lost to Nadal. This was the year that Djokovic introduced himself to the world, and with Nadal getting better with age, the competition at the top of men's tennis was heating up.

2008 (4)

Estoril, Halle, US Open, Basel

2008 was a difficult year for Federer as he suffered from mononucleosis in the first part of the season before suffering a back injury towards the end of the year. Amazingly, Federer still managed to make it to 3 Grand Slam finals, winning the US Open. 2008 would perhaps be best remembered for what many consider to be the best match of all time in the Wimbledon final, where Nadal finally dethroned Federer in a 5-set thriller.

2009 (4)

Madrid, French Open, Wimbledon, Cincinnati

2009 was the year Federer finally got his career Grand Slam. After Nadal's surprise defeat in the quarterfinals, the pressure was on Federer, but he squeezed through two five-set matches against Hass and Del Potro before eventually claiming victory over Robin Soderling. Federer followed that up with victory at Wimbledon to take his Grand Slam tally to a record-breaking 15.

2010 (5)

Australian Open, Cincinnati, Stockholm, Basel , ATP Tour Finals

Another year, another Grand Slam title for Federer. This time, it was the Australian Open as Federer defeated Andy Murray in the final 6-3 6-4 7-6. However, Federer failed to make any other Grand Slam finals, in what might have been a sign of things to come.

2011 (4)

Doha, Basel, Paris, ATP Tour Finals

When you have a resume like Roger Federer's, 2011 looks like a particularly bad year. Federer's best Grand Slam performance this year came at the French Open where he lost to Nadal in the final. It marked the first time since 2002 that he failed to win any of the year's Grand Slam events.

2012 (6)

Rotterdam, Dubai, Indian Wells, Madrid, Wimbledon, Cincinnati

2012 was the first year Federer would enter as a 30-year-old and already people were starting to talk about his retirement. However, Federer put that talk to bed with a solid season in which he claimed his 7th Wimbledon title and returned to number one in the world. 6 titles might not seem like much compared to his 2006 season, but for any normal players it's pretty good going!

2013 (1)

Halle

2013 was an injury-ravaged season for Federer. The furthest he made it in a Grand Slam was the semi-final in Australia, in a year that was better off forgotten. If people had been starting to whisper about Federer's retirement in 2012, then surely we were all thinking it in 2013.

2014 (5)

Dubai, Halle, Cincinnati, Shanghai, Basel

You right off the Fed at your peril though and 2014 saw something of a renaissance for Federer. He may not have claimed any Grand Slam titles, but the signs were there that there was life in the Fed yet. He reached the Wimbledon final where he lost 6-7 6-4 7-6 5-7 6-4 to Djokovic in his first Grand Slam final in 2 years.

2015 (6)

Brisbane, Dubai, Istanbul, Halle, Cincinnati, Basel

2016 was a season of almosts when it came to Grand Slams, but he picked up some impressive tournament wins once again. Djokovic was the main man stopping Federer from adding to his Grand Slam title tally as the Serb beat him in both the Wimbledon and US Open finals. The wait for another Grand Slam title would continue, but one thing was for certain, Federer wasn't far off.

2016 (0)

Let's not talk about this year. We thought it was the end for the G.O.A.T..... it wasn't. Here's a great point from 2017

2017 (7)

Australian Open, Indian Wells, Miami, Halle, Wimbledon, Shanghai, Basel

The triumphant return of the Fed! Let's face it, who thought Federer would win another Grand Slam? Well, he won two! At 35-years-old, Federer beat Nadal 6-4 3-6 6-1 3-6 6-3 to claim his 28th Grand Slam title. He didn't stop there though as he added a 29th Slam title at Wimbledon.

2018 (4)

Australian Open, Rotterdam, Stuttgart, Basel

Another year, yet another Grand Slam as Federer made it the big 30 at 36 years of age. Marin Cilic was Federer's victim as he claimed his 6th Aussie Open title. The rest of the year's Grand Slams might have been a little bit disappointing for Federer, but he closed in on 100 career tour victories by winning in Basel to move his tally to 99.

2019 (2*)

Dubai, Miami

The Swiss maestro joined the 100 club as he took victory in Dubai. He joined Jimmy Conners as the only man to achieve this in the open era and further cemented himself as a legend of the game (as if that was needed. He followed that up by claiming victory in Miami to move onto 101 titles. There's still plenty of time left in 2019 though, so who knows how far Federer might get by the end of the year.
