Roger Federer Triumphant at Australian Open

AO-Roger-1

Global Tennis Network would like to congratulate Roger Federer on winning the 2018 Australian Open Men's title. No. 2 in the world, Roger Federer defeated No. 6 Marin Cilic 6-2, 6-7(5), 6-3, 3-6, 6-1, to secure his sixth Melbourne title and an astounding 20th Grand Slam of his illustrious career. 

After going four years without winning a major, Federer has now won three of the last five and is flirting with the No. 1 ranking in the world. Currently, Rafael Nadal stands just 155 points ahead in the race. 

Cilic fought hard and gave a valiant effort. He has jumped three spots in the rankings and is now #3 in the world.
