    THE relentless hammering Mitchell Johnson cops from the Barmy Army no longer bothers the left-arm quick, however the axing of teammate Brad Haddin cuts deep.

    Fahey retains real tennis world title

    Apr 30, 2012

    MCC Real Tennis Section representative Robert Fahey has won an amazing 11th world title, taking 10 sets to defeat challenger Steve Virgona on the third day of the final in London on Saturday.

    The man dubbed the “Roger Federer of real tennis” controlled the contest from the outset.

    Needing seven sets to win the best-of-13-set final, he led 5-3 after the first two days, before closing it out by winning the opening two sets on Saturday. 

    Fahey has been the world champion since 1994, which makes him one of Australia’s most successful sportsmen. His 11 world titles are three more than the great Pierre Etchebaster's feat of seven consecutive defences in the thirties and forties. Age does not seem to impact Rob's dominance of the sport. He turns 44 today.

    The world number one’s achievements are extraordinary. He has won 11 Australian Opens, 10 French Opens, eight US Opens and eight British Opens. Not to mention three grand slams (2000, 2001 and 2008) and three world doubles titles.

    The presentation dinner was held in the Long Room at Lord's on Saturday evening. At the dinner, Rob said he intends to defend his title again in two years' time, at which point he will have held the title for an amazing 20 years.
