Roger Federer added yet another glorious chapter to his storied career, beating Marin Cilic in a thrilling 2018 Australian Open final to win his 20th Grand Slam title. Cilic made the 36-year-old dig deep, recovering after a poor first set to stretch the contest to five sets. The final score was 6-2, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 3-6, 6-1.
Federer was playing his 72nd Grand Slam tournament, and making his 19th appearance in the main draw in Melbourne. After a gap of almost five years between winning his 17th and 18th major titles, he has now won three of the last five, having also claimed an eighth Wimbledon title in July. Remarkably, Federer has now won 10% of the 200 men’s singles titles on offer at the majors since tennis turned professional in 1968.
“I’m so happy, it’s unbelievable,” Federer added. “After the year I had last year, it’s incredible.”
