Did Roger Federer celebrate his Aussie Open win in Gisborne?

Did Roger Federer celebrate his Aussie Open win in Gisborne?

He already holds the record of 302 weeks ranked number one.

It's just the latest in a long line of dizzying landmarks for a man widely-regarded as the greatest player in history.

Haase began as though he had not read the script but Federer was never going to let the opportunity slip - saying afterwards that it had been the flawless scenario to complete a fairy-tale comeback.

That wasn't good enough for Federer, who said simply, "It's out".

Grigor Dimitrov advanced to the final of the ABN AMRO World Tournament on Saturday when his semifinal opponent, David Goffin, had to give up after being hit in the left eye by a ball.

Moments after the win on Friday, Federer said: "What an unbelievable run it's been and a journey it's been for clinch world No. 1. I didn't really think I could get back to number one, this is a significant moment in my career".

"Later you sometimes try to fight it back and you wrestle it back from somebody else who deserved to be there".

Agassi previously held the landmark as the oldest player to be number one, with the American great 33 when he last held top spot in 2003.

I turned 14, Friends ended, Facebook was launched and a certain Roger Federer became world No. 1 for the first time. The second set went with serve all the way to the tiebreak, which Federer easily won. The eight-time grand slam title victor writes, "36 years 195 days.@RogerFederer continues to raise the bar in our sport. This could also free me up, lay the pressure aside and start to play my best tennis", he said.

What can you not expect the legendary Roger Federer not to do?

Roger Federer may have celebrated his 20th Grand Slam win after his recent Australian Open triumph at one of New Zealand's most picturesque spots.

The Australian Open win saw Federer secure a staggering 20th Grand Slam title.

This was the scene on Friday in the quarterfinals of the Rotterdam Open.

New Zealand remains the only country where Federer has never won a set, let alone a match. Federer's resurgence since Australian Open 2017 victory followed by successfully defending it in 2018 along with the eighth Wimbledon title in between has changed the dynamics of Open Era tennis.
