Roger Federer’s Australian Open triumph was his ‘greatest ever achievement’; as he defied age and his Grand Slam nemesis Nadal to win Australian Open classic.
Mark Petchey believes that Roger Federer’s dramatic five-set win against old foe Rafael Nadal to win the Australian Open and claim an historic 18th Grand Slam was “his greatest ever achievement.”
The 35-year-old won a classic encounter 6-4 3-6 6-1 3-6 6-3 to become the oldest major-winner in 45 years and move four titles clear of Nadal and Pete Sampras on the all-time list.
The veteran Swiss sealed the win on his second championship point, ending a five-year wait for a big victory after Wimbledon in 2012.
