Roger Federer wins his record sixth Barclays ATP World Tour Final.

Roger Federer labelled his record sixth Barclays ATP World Tour Finals title one of the biggest achievements of his career as he once again finished the season on the highest of notes. In a repeat of 12 months ago, the 30-year-old completed an unbeaten week at London’s O2 Arena, pocketing a cheque for £1million and pulling clear of Ivan Lendl and Pete Sampras, with whom he shared the previous record of five titles. He certainly did not have things all his own way today against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, though, the Frenchman pegging Federer back in the second set and forcing him to dig deep in the decider before coming through 6-3 6-7 (6/8) 6-3.

Federer, who also became the oldest winner of the title, said: “I’ve been trying to block it out for the entire tournament, the entire time I’ve been here in London. “I just tried to recuperate from Basle and Paris and hopefully get through the round-robin stages. So now it’s finally a reality that I’ve been able to win six World Tour Finals. It’s an amazing feeling. I know it’s one of my greatest accomplishments.”
