Tennis records

Hi guys,

I need some help, I was googling nearly an hour now cause i asked myself who was the oldest player who won an ATP-Tourney and who was the oldest who won a GS in tennis history? Am I right that it was Agassi who did both?

Re: Tennis records

who were the oldest winners of USO and Wimbledon in open era ? Rosewall title at AO isn't so huge because AO at that time wasn't neither close to the rest of the majors

Ken Rosewall won US Open in 1970. at the age of 35 years and 10 months and the oldest Wimbledon champion is Arthur Ashe in 1975. when he was few days younger than 32
