Roger Federer has not won a Grand Slam title in more than two years, but he continued his somewhat more subtle recent assault on the record books Sunday. On a cold, windy day, Federer claimed his record-tying 19th Masters 1000 title, beating John Isner, 7-6 (7), 6-3, in the final of the BNP Paribas Open.
It was a title that looked unlikely at times in the week with the former world number one having been taken to three sets by both Milos Raonic and Thomaz Bellucci.
“I’m definitely not content,” he said. “I want to get to more finals like this, this big, and I want to play my best in them. I’m going to keep working.”
