Roger Federer Returns to World No.1

Leading up to the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam, there was only one question on the minds of tennis fans around the world – could Roger Federer reclaim the World No. 1 ranking?

After sailing through his first two matches, the Swiss legend came up against Robin Haase on Friday night – and with a 4-6 6-1 6-1 victory secured a return to the pinnacle of men’s tennis for the first time in 2012.


Before receiving a special commemorative trophy, Federer was given a standing ovation from the Rotterdam crowd for his historic achievement.



Tennis TV celebrated Roger’s extraordinary feat with a retro twist…
