Fed on up; TENNIS.

ROGER FEDERER beat Tomas Berdych 3-6 6-4 6-3 to claim his sixth Dubai title.

Federer, who recovered from a set down to stun world No.2 Novak Djokovic in Friday's semi-finals, again struggled early on but dug deep.

The Swiss superstar's last win came in Halle last summer and that triumph in a small event was his only victory of the entire 2013 season.

Federer went a set down to the third-seeded Czech but levelled in the next and took control with a break in the fourth game of the third set - before comfortably serving out the match to end his drought.
