    32 year old guy, way past his prime winning against a modern strong era player...

    Has happened before, on the Grand Slam stage no less, Sampras beating Roddick in US Open 2002. Or Becker beating Chang in Aus Open 1996. Becker even joked at that time that his days were numbered while Chang was still young. I mean, sure, Becker wasn't that old but he was way past it already.

    Also Federer is still much fitter than typical 32-33 year old washed up tennis stars. He looked much fresher and was more mobile than Djoko in the third set.

    EDIT: Another startling instance now that I began to read up about old man heroics. How could I leave out the grand daddy Jimmy Connors? Beat Stefan Edberg in straight sets in US Open 1989!!! Would have been 37 at that time.
