Roger Federer will play for his 100th career title on Saturday after demolishing Borna Coric 6-2, 6-2 in the semi-finals of the Dubai Championships.

Federer will face Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final after the Greek carved out a 4-6, 7-6 (7/4), 7-6 (7/4) win over Gael Monfils earlier Friday.

Federer, 37, was shocked by Tsitsipas in the fourth round of the Australian Open in January in their only other previous meeting.
