Federer has dropped just one set so far this week.

The Swiss' reply was simple - "It's out".

"At nearly 37-years-old it is a dream come true and I honestly cannot believe it". "I always planned for longevity and I never gave up that I could get back to winning ways, without ever dreaming of world number again to be honest, that was too far".

And Petchey has explained the secret to his success. ". back at number 1 at 36 years young after skipping the entire clay court season. Congratulations on yet another remarkable achievement!", tweeted the American.

"I've struggled to try and get there".

Federer has also set a new record for the longest gap between stints at No.1, having last held the ranking five years and 106 days ago, plus the longest gap since first becoming No.1 - which he did a stunning 14 years and 17 days ago.

Speaking ahead of his quarterfinal match against Robin Haase, he said that he isn't "here to go look at the tulips".

He went on to win a total of eight titles, including two Grand Slams. Haase finished on a disappointing note with his second double-fault on match point.

"I hope to play one more good match and that's it for the week".

What TV channel is it on?

Despite his achievement, Federer still has a semi-final to play. "When I saw that, I felt this guy was tuned up", he added.

One of the few he doesn't have will belong to him next week.

"But I've got all day tomorrow to recalibrate". This is an important moment of my career.

Dimitrov was playing his second Rotterdam semi-final and is into his first final at the tournament.

The number four seed will face the man who beat him in the final of the ATP World Tour Finals, Grigor Dimitrov, for a place in the final after the Bulgarian overcame Andrey Rublev 6-3 6-4.

Federer will face off against long-time German opponent Philipp Kolschreiber, who has lost a dozen times to the winner of a record 20 Grand Slam titles.
