Question Oldest and youngest players to win a title / major

I know I could probably look it up online, but I'm sure many people here know this and its faster...

So who (and at what age) was the oldest and youngest players to ever win any title and a major tournament?

#Wayne Arthurs ~ became the oldest man to win his 1st ATP title at age 33-years & 11-months at the TennisChannel Open in 2005

**
Andre Agassi ~ became the oldest man to win a Slam since Ken Rosewell in 1972, when Andre captured the AO in 2003 at age 32yrs & 9-months


`@@`Agassi was also the oldest man to win an ATP title since Jimmy Connors in 1989, when Andre captured the 2005 Los Angeles Open at age 35yrs & 3-months!!!

Re: Oldest and youngest players to win a title / major

Krickstein was the youngest ever to win an ATP title at 16yrs 3 months in Tel Aviv.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

To answer you question more specifically
...
Ken Rosewell at the 1972 AO was the oldest [to win a Slam in the Open Era] ~> 37-years & 3-months

Re: Oldest and youngest players to win a title / major

Alan krickstein (sp?) won tel aviv when he was 16 years and 2 months, which is pretty impressive.Chang won San Francisco 16 years and 7 months.

Chang also has the youngest age to win a grand slam at 17 years and 3 months when he beat edberg at RG. Borg won RG at 17 years and 11 months.

Re: Oldest and youngest players to win a title / major

No I didn't...

Tennis is very under-developed in Israel, in the last 3-5 years it started getting better, but even now there is very little awareness about the sport there.

Thankfully players like Shahar Peer and Dudi Sela are doing very well and making it look more attractive to young Israeli players and they also get media coverage which should help boost tennis there...
