Following an impressive run during the Indian Wells and Miami Open, Rogers Federer has gone on to claim the opening two Masters 1000 titles. This would make it the first time since 2006 he achieved this feat.

In lieu of this, the Swiss tennis star has busted through some serious records, and has now become the oldest player to win this series at the age of 35 years and 7 months.

Before this, Andre Agassi held the record as the oldest winner of the Masters 1000 title when in 2004 in Cincinnati, he lifted the trophy at the age of 34 years and 3 months.

It took another 11 years for anyone to get close to the feat posted by Agassi. It was achieved by Federer who went on just after his 34th birthday to conquer Cincinnati.

This season has seen Federer raise the bar quite higher and it could take more than a decade for anyone to surpass or even match this feat.

As the pinnacle of the newly-formed ATP Tour, the Masters 1000 series was launched in the year 1990. This series event came just at the right time for the new generation players born in 1970 or later which had in its ranks the likes of Jim Courier,Andre Agassi,Michael Chang and Pete Sampras.

These players made it quite hard for older players to come onto the stage and grab some Masters titles when it first came onboard.

However, the years that came by proved to be much tougher for the veterans especially in the early 2000’s. Players born in the 80’s such as Roger Federer,David Nalbandian,Marat Safin,Lleyton Hewitt,Juan Carlos Ferrero, Andy Roddick and others made it difficult for players older than 29 to win these titles.
