Sports Gist: Roger Federer Clinches 5th Australian Open Title:
Roger Federer claimed the 18th Grand Slam title of his legendary career, beating old rival Rafael Nadal in five sets to win his fifth Australian Open.
With his idol Rod Laver watching on and handing over the trophy, the 35-year-old produced a gutsy and at times magnificent performance to claim his first major title since Wimbledon in 2012 and beat Nadal in a Grand Slam for the first time in more than 10 years
Federer’s 6-4 3-6 6-1 3-6 6-3 triumph cements his status at the top of the game where he now sits four clear of Nadal and Pete Sampras
