Federer's fairytale continues — Oman- Tennis

Federer's fairytale continues — Oman- Tennis

Amazingly, Federer won his 20th slam in the 200th major of the 50-year open era on Sunday night.

Federer won the Australian Open championship with a five-set win over Marin Cilic, 6-2, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 3-6, 6-1. I wish it wasn't so sometimes.

You might be thinking who Norman is. Nadal has a superior head-to-head record, but since Federer reinvented his backhand last year, that stat is no longer so relevant.

"I played all my matches outdoors throughout the tournament so it was difficult", Cilic explained. I can't believe it myself.

Roger Federer is on the verge of becoming the World No.1 after the ATP rankings were updated following his Australian Open triumph.

"It was way cooler than I expected".

Federer's impressive performance under extreme pressure from Cilic also earned the admiration of Indian cricket great Sachin Tendulkar. What a scary thought that must be for his opponents. "I think that's what's going to dictate how successful I will be".

Playing in his record 30th major final, the Swiss held off an impressive fightback from the Croat after leading two sets to one and 3-1 in the fourth set, pegging Cilic back in the fifth set to claim the championship.

"This is a dream come true, the fairytale continues for me". Tried to serve well. "I got lucky tonight".

In one of the most exciting debuts of all times, Ronaldo sauntered over the pitch wearing the much-hailed number 7 blazing red jersey. From then on, maybe momentum shifts a little bit, and it's exactly what happened.

"When I arrived to the courts, I was totally ready to play outdoors. This is for them also". As a professional, it's what we do.

"Just looking at my own side, I didn't feel those conditions before", he said. I was the favourite. Then they kept me posted along the way. Cilic couldn't get the return into play on either of the break points. "Astonishing then, incredible now".

"It's surreal", he said on Monday.

"I'm feeling really good physically, even though I had a few matches that went more than three hours", Cilic said. "But this is the business and this is the industry that we are in, and you kind of just have to have a tough skin". You see how calm and composed he is on the court today and you just assume he has always just been that way. "Having a great team around me, they make it possible". Without her support, I wouldn't be playing tennis anymore since many years. He said he enjoyed every moment at this year's Australian Open.

Chung defeated the likes of World No. 4 Alexander Zverev, 6-time Australian Open winner Novak Djokovic and American wildcard Tennys Sandgren en route his career first Grand Slam semi-final.
