Roger Federer cracks funny joke after reaching No. 1 ranking
Not only that, but the Swiss icon’s ascent to the top makes him the oldest No. 1 in history, as the 36-year-old surpassed Andre Agassi, who was No. 1 in the world in 2003 at the age of 33.
That fact prompted Federer to offer up a funny tweet about his achievement.
Apparently I’m the oldest tennis player with a # ranking. Somebody might have mentioned that to me already but I had a hard time hearing

Way to embrace it, Roger.
Federer is showing no signs of slowing down, having started the year by walking off with his 20th major title. And make no mistake — Federer still celebrates his victories, by his own admission, like someone half his age would.
