'I call it level 43, not age 43' - Rohan Bopanna on becoming oldest World No. 1 | The India Story

'I call it level 43, not age 43' - Rohan Bopanna on becoming oldest World No. 1 | The India Story

In a remarkable feat that defies conventional age barriers, Rohan Bopanna, at 43, etched his name in the annals of tennis history by becoming the oldest man to secure the World No. 1 spot in men's doubles. This triumph, however, was just the beginning of an extraordinary fortnight for Bopanna, culminating in a glorious Australian Open crown.

In an exclusive conversation with Vikram Chandra, founder of Editorji, Bopanna delves into what he affectionately calls "level 43," emphasizing that age is not a limitation but a testament to the pinnacle at which he continues to play the sport.

"I call it level 43, not age 43. So, you know, since no one has really achieved that. Definitely proud and, you know, coming from India, being from India too and holding this record can't beat it at all," expresses Bopanna, radiating pride in his groundbreaking achievement.

Bopanna's journey to the World No. 1 spot was not without its challenges. Revealing his desire to quit tennis a few years ago, he shares insights into the mental fortitude that fueled his resurgence. The Australian Open victory, where he partnered with Mathew Ebden to clinch the men's doubles title, stands as a testament to Bopanna's unwavering perseverance.

From facing mental challenges during lean periods to standing tall on the podium at Melbourne Park, Bopanna's story resonates with resilience, determination, and the indomitable spirit to overcome obstacles.

The tennis world, from Novak Djokovic to Rafael Nadal, celebrated Bopanna's historic achievement.

You can catch the full interview, unraveling the layers of "The India Story" with Rohan Bopanna, this Friday on Editorji.
