If one thing is for sure, is that sooner or later the English vocabulary will end up without proper words or sentences to describe Roger Federer's greatness. Despite his age, the so-called Swiss Maestro, snatched his 2nd title in 2017 capping another 6 matches run. Having the 5th Indian Wells title in his pocket, he is building his way to the top of the ranking. Several months ago, the upcoming season of 2017 was supposed to provide a decent shot for other young stars to emerge, with no one taking into consideration players like Federer or Nadal. The reality on the ground turned out to be a totally different story.

Federer with an unbelievable run at Indian Wells

Several weeks ago, Roger Federer was the victim of a short circuit in Dubai being ousted by a qualifier. But at Indian Wells, he made no mistakes on his way to a 5ht title here, and the first one since 2012. He accomplished that without losing a single set during the tournament. Some aspects must be taken into consideration as Federer had to deal with Rafael Nadal in the 4th round and Stan Wawrinka in the final. Moreover, Federer lost just one game on his own serve. That happened against Wawrinka in the 2nd set's debut. No other factors like extreme heat, age or fatigue seemed to bother this titan. His game plan was a full-length mirror of what he saw at the Australian Open having Federer constantly applying pressure even on the opponent's first serve.

The mesmerising backhand also had a significant impact on his overall Tennis game.

There is room for more

Starting from today, Federer will jump 4 seats in the ranking from the 10th spot up to the 6th one. His probable next stop, unless something unexpected will emerge, will be in Miami, another Masters 1000 event.

With Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic being sidelined due to some injuries, Federer will be among the top 4 seeded players. That gives him an accessible road towards the final stages even though Federer not seeing himself going up to that point. A decent run in Miami ( a presence in the last 8 of the tournament) is still something feasible and would give him a clear path to the 4th place in the general ranking just before the clay court's start.
