The Indian tennis star became the oldest Grand Slam winner at 43.

Rohan Bopanna is an Indian tennis player who achieved a career-high singles ranking of world No. 213 in 2007 and a career-high doubles ranking of world No. 1 in 2024. He was a valuable member of the Indian Davis Cup team, before retiring from the tournament in 2023. He carried the doubles torch from his compatriots Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes.

Bopanna, born in 1980, began playing tennis when he was 11. He made his professional international debut in 2007 when he stood out as India’s and the world’s most distinguished player at the Hopman Cup. His style has been described as serve-oriented. Bopanna has competed at the Grand Slams for over a decade in singles, doubles, and mixed doubles.

The 43-year-old’s phenomenal athletic career as a Grand Slam champion has repeatedly demonstrated him as a top performer. He has won Masters 1000 events and has been an ATP regular. He has competed in doubles matches with some of India’s best players, including Mahesh Bhupathi, Sania Mirza, Leander Paes, and several international tennis players.

Bopanna’s alliance with Pakistan’s Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi earned the duo the nickname “Indo-Pak express” in 2007, as the two earned high praise for their on-court collaboration and companionship.

Rohan Bopanna’s style of play

The Indian tennis player is frequently seen hitting flat and spin with his one-handed backhand. His forehand has bounce and topspin, which makes it a more solemn style of play. He is well-known for his quick serves, which bring him the majority of the points.

Bopanna’s net-rushing style works well on fast courts. While he can shield from the back of the court, he stands at the net and strikes a volley to whatever is thrown his way. The Indian can hit a one-handed backhand flat or with spin. His forehand is significantly heavier, with a lot of topspin and bounce.

He created history when he became the oldest tennis player to win an ATP Masters 1000 title. He and Australian partner Matthew Ebden won the men’s doubles title at the Indian Wells Masters 2023 tournament in California on 17th March 2023. In the final, the Indo-Australian pair defeated top seeds Wesley Koolhof of the Netherlands and Neil Skupski of the United Kingdom, 6-3, 2-6, 10-8.

At the Australian Open 2024, Bopanna achieved a career-high doubles ranking of World No.1 with partner Matthew Ebden en route to lifting the men’s doubles title. With their straight sets (76(7-0), 7-5) win over unseeded Italian duo Simone Bolelli/Andrea Vavassori, Bopanna became the oldest Grand Slam champion in tennis history.
