33-year-old Aussie wins first ATP title
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Unseeded Australian Wayne Arthurs became the oldest first-time winner since the ATP Tour was formed in 1990, beating third-seeded Mario Ancic of Croatia 7-5, 6-3 on Sunday in the Tennis Channel Open.
The 33-year-old left-hander, in his 128th ATP Tour-level tournament, dominated his 20-year-old opponent.
"It feels really, really good, really satisfying," Arthurs said. "Especially now that I'm older, it's probably even more satisfying to win a tournament this late in my career. I'm going to savor every moment of it, that's for sure."
