Roger Federer won a record sixth Dubai Championships - and 78th career title - by beating Tomas Berdych 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 in the final Saturday.

Federer, who maintains a home in Dubai, delighted a packed stadium of fans who seemed biased for the Swiss in back-to-back wins over Novak Djokovic in the semifinals and Berdych.
 
Federer's win, his sixth here in the last 12 years, extends his record of winning at least one title a year to 14 consecutive years.
 
This is Federer's first tournament victory since winning in Halle, his only title of 2013, last spring.
 
Federer improved his record over Berdych to 12-6 with the win. The last time they played, however, Berdych beat Federer in the Dubai semifinals last year.
 
The loss ended Berdych's longest winning streak of his career at 11 matches.
 
In the first set, the fourth-seeded Federer's forehand looked shaky and he appeared a step slow.
 
After exchanging early service breaks, the third-seeded Berdych snared the go-ahead break in the sixth game. On a second break point at 30-40, Federer netted a backhand to lose serve.
 
In the second set, there was another early exchange of breaks. From 4-4, Federer won the final eight points of the set to even the set score.
 
Both players had break opportunities in the first two games of the third set - Berdych three and Federer one - but both held.
 
Federer secured his victory when he broke Berdych on a second break point in the fourth game.
 
Federer faced two break points on his serve in the seventh game but held on to the game for 5-2.
 
Berdych was able to save two Federer match points on his own serve in the eighth game. But the Czech couldn't stop Federer from serving out. On Federer's third match point at 40-15 in the ninth game, Berdych netted a backhand return.

"I was happy I was able to use momentum, win that second set, and then it was a tough opening period in the third, wasting the Love-40 game on Tomas' first service game," said Federer. "Then saving break points myself. Anything could have happened there.
 
"Things definitely went my way out here tonight, but I have had a lot tougher matches in the last one and a half years, so this is nice to get a lucky break again."
 
"I would say many things [went wrong]," lamented Berdych. "The match started pretty well. I had really many chances, and then I basically just gave him the game and that's it.
 
"It's very disappointing for me the way I handled that situation. I was in the better shape and playing really well and made my chances, but unfortunately I didn't execute it in the end.
 
"I'm quite good in that I don't keep the losses in my head for a long time. I will definitely try to learn from the mistakes in the second set. I will just try to take positives from that and just leave all the negatives behind."

Now that's the picture Federer Fans have been longing to see!!

Yes he did it!! Maybe taking a tortuous route at times, but eventually Roger Federer lifted the Dubai Duty Free Championships Trophy for the sixth time, to the sheer delight of all his fans.

Here's a video of the walk on and warm up.

Tomas Berdych was first to serve. Federer appeared to be high on adrenaline and started well breaking Berdych in his second service game, but then he lost his own service game, more through error than shot making from Tomas. I got the feeling Roger was supercharged and needed to calm himself down and get control a bit more to outwit the sheer power of his opponent.

The first set went to Tomas Berdych 6-3

The second set saw a gradual steadying of Federer's game. Things started to click into gear and he began to apply the pressure. He broke Berdych to take a 3-2 lead and stepped up a level from then on. His first service improved dramatically, from a worryingly low 35% to 76%, whereas Berdych seemed to go to pieces, his first serve percentage dropping to 36% with more errors creeping in. His frustration showed!

The hot shot of the match came in the eighth game, Federer stunning a powerful return of serve, to just drift the ball a few feet over the net.

The third set picked up from where the second left off. Federer breaking to take a 3-1 lead. He knew what he had to do and was not going to ease off now!

It was a magical moment to watch Roger win this match, I am sure I echo the feelings of many thousands of Federer fans in saying that he is truly on the comeback trail and we hope that he is around for many more years. Congrats Roger, keep us on the edge of our seats!

After Roger was broken in the second set, I decided to go to bed because it was past 2 am and I thought maybe this was not the day for him. I checked the results after I woke up and I was pleasantly surprised. Great result from him. He will win a few more in the coming months, for sure, and he is now a contender for Wimbledon.
