Rohan Bopanna sets age record with ATP Finals win

TURIN, Italy -- India's Rohan Bopanna made history at the ATP Finals when at 43 he became the oldest player ever to win a match at the year-ender, teaming up with Matthew Ebden to beat Rinky Hijikata and Jason Kubler 6-4, 6-4 in a round-robin match Wednesday.

Bopanna and his Australian partner are now 1-1 in their group and could still qualify for the semifinals depending on the result of their match against Wesley Koolhof and Neal Skupski on Friday.

The previous oldest player to win a match at the tournament was Canada's Daniel Nestor, who was 42 in 2014.

Earlier this year, Bopanna became the oldest ATP Masters 1000 champion when he won the Indian Wells doubles alongside Ebden.
