Who gets fed up of Federer!

By S.H.Moulana

We watched two days of continuous Tennis bonanza at Melbourne. We saw the gentleman tennis player Roger Federer (35) beating Rafael Nadal in a highly exciting match, which ran the full five sets.

By winning this he established a world record with 18 Grand Slams and he was the first man in history to win five or more titles at three different Grand Slam events; five in Australia, five in US and seven at Wimbledon.

The previous day there was yet another record established by none other than the gallant Serena Williams (35) by beating her own sister Venus Williams.

With the Australian Open victory she has now won 23 Grand Slams which is a world record. Saturday was the 28th installment of the Williams sisters on court.

The most remarkable thing about Serena Williams is the length of time she has been winning Grand Slams titles.

The first came on 11 September 1999 in New York, the 23rd on 28 January 2017 in Melbourne.

Former legendary player, Billie Jean King tweeted ‘Congrats Serena on your 23rd major title and return to the WTA rankings. You are history maker and a trail blazer.’

We thank Roger and Serena for providing us some excellent tennis to watch and we enjoyed every second of it.
