Roger Federer overpowered Grigor Dimitrov 6-2, 6-2 in less than an hour  to win the ABN AMRO World Tournament, his 97th career title.

Federer, on Sunday, extended his domination over the player once dubbed “Baby Fed” for the similarities in their playing style, registering his seventh victory in as many meetings.

Federer’s third title at the Rotterdam tournament comes a day before he officially returns to the top of the rankings, more than five years after he was last world No. 1.

The 36-year-old Swiss earned a return to the top when the rankings are updated Monday, by reaching the semifinals in Rotterdam.
