This record has been in the safe custody of Jimmy Connors for three decades, since the American won the last of his 109 singles titles at Tel Aviv in 1989.

This year, in Dubai, Federer emulated the American by becoming the only other player to win a century of singles titles, after beating young Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Dubai final. The 38-year-old also won in Miami, Halle and Basel to close 2019 with 103 singles titles.

Federer won seven titles from eight finals in 2017, four from seven in 2018, and four from six this year. Assuming the trend to continue next year, Federer would get his chance to equal or get past Connors' record of most singles titles some time during the latter half of the year.

The catch, of course, is that Federer would have to win more than 75% of his finals if he hopes to reach Connors' mark in 2020 itself. If he isn't as good as converting his finals appearances into titles, he'll likely have to wait until 2021 to get there.
