Rohan Bopanna Becomes Oldest-Ever Man To Win Grand Slam

Rohan Bopanna Becomes Oldest-Ever Man To Win Grand Slam

Rohan Bopanna of India etched his name into tennis history at the Australian Open 2024, showcasing both age-defying skill and determination. Teaming up with Matthew Ebden, Bopanna, who is on the cusp of turning 44 in March, secured the men's doubles title, making him the oldest man to achieve such a feat in a Grand Slam. Their victory, achieved on Rod Laver Arena, saw them triumph over the unseeded Italian duo Simone Bolelli and Andrea Vavassori with a scoreline of 7-6 (7/0), 7-5.

This triumph marked several milestones for Bopanna. Not only did he become the oldest number one in men's doubles history, but he also secured his first men's doubles Grand Slam title after a remarkable 60 attempts—a record in itself. Additionally, he joined an elite club as only the third Indian to clinch a men's doubles Grand Slam title, following in the footsteps of legends like Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi.

Despite the challenging battle, lasting one hour and 39 minutes, Bopanna and Ebden showcased their prowess, ensuring a high-quality display of tennis. The match witnessed a lone break of serve in the second set, highlighting the fierce competition on the court. Bopanna's previous Grand Slam success in the mixed doubles at the French Open in 2017 with Gabriela Dabrowski added to his illustrious career.

Bopanna's victory not only solidified his status as a tennis great but also set a new benchmark in men's tennis, surpassing the previous record held by Jean-Julien Rojer. His resilience and remarkable achievement at 43 years old serve as an inspiration to athletes worldwide, proving that age is no barrier to success in the world of sports.
