Federer beat fellow Swiss Stan Wawrinka 6-4 7-5 on Sunday to claim his 90th ATP title, and his 25th ATP Masters 1000 title. The 35-year-old, who cut his 2016 season short in July, rises to No.6 in the world rankings, having started the year at No.17.

“It’s been just a fairytale week once again,” said Federer, who won his 18th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open. “I’m still on the comeback. I hope my body is going to allow me to keep on playing. I was very sad when I couldn’t come here last year.

“Just being here is a beautiful feeling. It’s one of my favourite tournaments. I came here for the first time 17 years ago. So to be here again as the champion is an amazing feeling.”
