Swiss Tennis Star Roger Federer still can’t believe that he was hailed as the Australian Open Champion after he beat his ultimate rival Rafael Nadal in a five-set match, 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3.
Federer was emotional when he was hailed as the champion, since Nadal defeated him way back in 2009.
The 35-year-old Swiss Tennis Star had his record-breaking 18th Grand Slam Title and 5th Australian Open Crown after the said victory.
This victory is very meaningful for Federer since his last finals victory was in 2012 and this win happened after his 6-month rest due to series of injuries.
“I’ve been coming here for almost 20 years now,” said Federer.
“I’ve always enjoyed it and now my family does too… “Thanks again for everything, to everybody. I hope to see you next year. If not, this was a wonderful run here and I can’t be happier to win.” – EPJA
