With this triumph in the all-Swiss final, Federer joined Novak Djokovic as the only man to win five Indian Wells titles.

He had earlier won this title consecutively three times between 2004 and 2006 and in 2012. This victory at Indian Wells marks Federer’s 90th tour-level crown. This was also his 25th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title.

At 35, Federer is the oldest ATP player to win one of the elite Master's titles, supplanting Andre Agassi who was 34 when he won in Cincinnati in 2004.

Earlier in January 2016, Federer won the Australian Open title. This was his first title after returning back from the knee surgery that kept him out of the game for some six months. The Australian Open was his 18th Grand Slam title.
