Nearly 15 years after his first major at Wimbledon, Roger Federer won his 20th title by beating Marin Cilic in the final of the Australian Open. It was a record equalling sixth triumph in Melbourne to add to his eight Wimbledon titles, five US Opens and one French Open. Unsurprisingly, the 36-year-old says there are no plans to retire.
