Roger Federer produced a masterful display of Tennis as defeated World No. 1 Novak Djokovic 6-3, 7-5 in an hour and 24 minutes to capture his 7th Dubai Duty Free championship title & overall his, 84th singles career title.

The match was played in an electrifying atmosphere with a full house.

1st Set
 
 
Federer started aggressively and with a clear game plan of keeping the points short.
 
 
 

 
 
 
Djokovic had a break-point each in the 3rd and the 5th game but Federer managed to save those with his brilliant mix of wide serves. Federer got the first break in the 8th game on his very first break-point and that one break was sufficient as Federer closed out the 1st set 6-3 in 38 minutes.
 
 
Here are the first set stats -----

2nd Set
 
 
Roger Federer served out his 9000th career ace in the 6th game of the 2nd set & thus, became the 4th man (since ATP started counting aces in 1991) to record 9000 aces (after Ivanisevic, Dr Ivo Karlovic & Andy Roddick).
 
 

 
 

 
The first seven games went on serve without any break points. But, the Serb had two break-points on Federer's service in the 8th game and the Swiss maestro managed to save those with fantastic wide serve. Djokovic again had two set points (break-points) in the 10th game, but once again, Federer managed to save those two break-points with some pin pointing clutch serving.
 
 
Federer immediately broke Djokovic's serve the very next game to get to a 6-5 lead. Djokovic again had a break-point in the 12th game but Federer once again saved it with his immaculate clutch serving.

Federer then served out the match on his 2nd match point, thus winning the Dubai title for the 7th time.
 
 
Here's the winning shot ----
 
 

 
 
Here are the match stats -----
 
 
B-8g1qzW0AA578y.jpg
 
 
This was the first time in Roger Federer's (126 finals) career when he managed to save 100% of the break points that he faced against him and converted 100% of the break-points.
