Roger Federer just won in the third round of the Shanghai Masters to secure his spot as the #1 ranked tennis player for his 300th week!

He beat Davis Cup teammate Stanislas Wawrinka 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-0 on Thursday!

Federer said:

"It's obviously an amazing number and I never thought of anything like this when I was a little kid. I just thought one day my dream would come true to play on the tour. So here I am at 300 weeks, and it's probably one of my biggest accomplishments and something I'm very proud of. No doubt about it."

That must be such an absolutely ahmayzing feeling!

He's living his childhood dream! And it almost didn't come true!

He had trouble with his backhand for most of the beginning of the match, saying:

"I just keep on trying. I knew I had a chance going into the breaker and I was just a little lucky. But I never stopped believing. But he was the better player for two sets. It was great finding a way out."

Perseverance.

That's how people like him get to where he is now.

Best tennis player in the world.

Congrats!
