Roger plays his 900th match

And records his 727th victory as he swept aside American Taylor Dent


Roger Federer cruised into the Stockholm Open quarter-finals on Thursday in his 900th match on the ATP Tour, beating Taylor Dent of the United States 6-1, 6-2 in 51 minutes.

Federer outclassed Dent to record his 727th tour win, in his first match in the Swedish capital for a decade.
It took the 16-time Grand Slam winner just 17 minutes to win the first set, breaking Dent twice.

Dent put up more of a fight in the second, having two break points in the fourth game, but Federer upped the tempo.

Federer never needed to demonstrate his full repertoire of shots to win, but he ripped one backhand pass in the second set that brought cheers from the crowd at the Royal Tennis Hall.
