Australian Open

A moment of history, a moment sure to savour as ageless Roger Federer redefined his standards as he outlasted sixth-seeded Marin Cilic in three hours and three minutes of intense battle under the scorching Melbourne heat to lift the Australian Open silverware for a record-equalling sixth time. Wishes poured in as Federer won the final 6-2, 6-7, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 in front of a record 743,667 spectators at the Rod Laver Arena claiming his 20th Grand Slam title. Federer’s dear friend from another sport, Sachin Tendulkar too joined the congratulatory bandwagon.
