Roger Federer wins historic Australian Open Final
He may be 35 and been away from the sport for 6 months with injury but Roger Federer returned to win an epic Grand Slam title over Rafael Nadal.
The close 5 set match swung between both players with Federer winning the first, third and crictically the fith set. The final score was 6:4, 3:6, 6:1, 3:6, 6:3. It was Federer's 18th grand slam title and victory was clearly very sweet.He went on to party all night returning at dawn to show the trophy to his excited children and then a little later than normal he paraded the trophy through the Carlton Gardens. Some thought he might, like Pete Sampras announce a sudden retirement but instead there was talk of the French Open and Wimbledon. He won't be around for ever but at least we can see one of the world's finest tennis players in action for a little longer.
