Roger Federer said Monday he is pinching himself over a resurgent season that has added two more Grand Slams to the Swiss great's trophy case and put 100 career singles titles within reach.With many predicting players like Germany's Alexander Zverev to become the sport's next dominant players, Federer and Nadal aren't done yet.Starting the year ranked a relatively lowly 17th in the world, Federer beat Nadal in the Australian Open final in January and then won a record-breaking eighth Wimbledon in July without dropping a set.He now has 93 singles titles, just one shy of overtaking Ivan Lendl for second-most in the Open era. But Federer, who has five singles titles so far this year, is just focused on staying healthy. Federer said he was surprised that Nadal, who won the French and U.S. Opens this year, had even competed in Beijing after a busy recent stretch of tennis.
