Roger Federer still is not the oldest Grand Slam winner - Daily Mail Online


Roger Federer's record breaking eighth Wimbledon title saw him become the oldest winner at SW19, beating Arthur Ashe's record set in 1975. The Swiss beat Marin Cilic in the men's singles final aged 35 years and 342 days and set a new record for the third oldest male winner of a Grand Slam. At the top of that list still sits Ken Rosewall, winner of the 1972 Australian Open at 37 years 63 days. Rosewall beat Malcolm Anderson back in January 1972, etching his name in the history books a straight sets victory: 7-6(7-2), 6-3, 7-5.
