Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal's successor named by tennis legend Rod Laver

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal's successor named by tennis legend Rod Laver Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal's successor named by tennis legend Rod Laver

On Sunday, the Swiss great created history by winning the 2018 Australian Open Championship and in doing so became the first male tennis player to win 20 Grand Slams.

Never afraid of holding it in, Federer broke down in tears as Rod Laver Arena erupted at his colossal achievement. Federer had a tough fourth set and looked drained and Cilic took full advantage of that winning it by 6-3. "After the great year I had last year, it's incredible".

And he surged to an early lead in comfortable fashion before Cilic rounded to make a game of it. It's not just Federer's tennis, but the fact that he can play so successfully with minimum damage to his body. To his credit, Cilic soared with five straight games to win level the match at two sets apiece.

Most Australian Open titles (6) - equalling Novak Djokovic and Roy Emerson.

Almost two decades after entering the professional leagues, Roger Federer is still winning Grand Slams. His overall his Grand Slam mark stands at 332-52.

The second-seeded Federer joins Margaret Court (24), Serena Williams (23) and Steffi Graf (22) as the only players to capture at least 20 singles trophies at the majors. Nadal has a superior head-to-head record, but since Federer reinvented his backhand past year, that stat is no longer so relevant. Federer has a 16-1 record against all other opponents, the only defeat coming against Juan Martin del Potro in the 2009 US Open final. Then I don't think age is an issue, per se.

"Nobody makes me cry like Roger Federer", tweeted Chris Evert, an 18-time Grand Slam victor and two-time Australian Open women's singles title victor. Do you admire Roger Federer? . He put up a great fight in the second set, often outshadowing Federer in attacking play and it paid great dividends as he won the set 7-6 in a tie-break.

"I'm feeling really good physically, even though I had a few matches that went more than three hours", Cilic said. She was ranked no. 1 and won her 20th Grand Slam title in the year 1996. He wasn't expected to encounter too much trouble withFucsovics and so it proved with three service breaks and no break points on his own service along with 34 winners.
