Roger Federer swatted aside Andy Murray 7-5 6-4 to win the Dubai Championships on Saturday, the

Swiss maestro's 72nd tour title, as he abandoned the baseline to dominate from the net.

The 16-times grand slam winner may no longer be favourite for the top prizes but few can match

hislongevity or dedication on the gruelling men's tour and the 30-year-old claimed his fifth Dubai title

without dropping a set all week.

"Against Andy I knew I had to stay aggressive but not overly - you don't want to overhit," Federer told

reporters. "I think I found the right balance out there tonight."

The Swiss has now won five of his past seven tournaments since reaching the semi-finals of last year's

U.S. Open.

"There is no substitute to confidence," said Federer. "I'm defending much better than I was in the

middle of last year where I felt like I couldn't come out of tough defensive positions anymore. I was

able to turn it around. Now, I just have to keep it up."
