Roger Federer Crowned Oldest No. 1 in Tennis at Age 36

Source: Statista

Having won his 97th ATP World Tour title in Rotterdam on Sunday, Roger Federer became the oldest tennis player to reach world no. 1 since the introduction of the ATP Rankings in 1973. The Swiss maestro took the top spot from Rafael Nadal, nearly five years his junior, in the new rankings published on Monday.

Reclaiming the no. 1 spot more than five years after having lost it to Novak Djokovic in November 2012, Federer’s return to the tennis throne adds a couple more records to his name. Not only is he the oldest player to reach number 1 – Andre Agassi was 33 when he was last no. 1 in September 2003 – Federer is also the player with the longest period between two stints at no. 1 (5 years) and the player with the longest period between his no. 1 debut and his latest coronation (14 years). This week will mark his 303rd week at the top of the ATP Rankings, which is, you guessed it, also a record.

At 20 Grand Slam singles titles, Roger Federer also leads in that category, which leads us to one of the few records in male tennis he has yet to conquer. Having won 97 singles titles on tour, the Swiss trails Jimmy Connors by 12 wins. The American won 109 tournaments during his career, including 8 Grand Slam titles.

Super Bowl LII Draws Smallest TV Crowd Since 2009

Source: Statista

While Sunday’s Super Bowl broke plenty of records (along with the hearts of some Patriots fans), the TV ratings record was not one of them. NBC’s telecast of the game drew an average audience of 103.4 million viewers, more than 10 million short of the all-time record set by Super Bowl XLIX in 2015.

As our chart illustrates, Super Bowl TV viewership has risen sharply since the 1990s. For the past few years, it had been hovering around 110 million before seeing its first more significant decline this year. Super Bowl LII marks the third consecutive year-over-year decline in TV viewership, though interest remains at a high level when looking at the long-term trend.
