Swiss star Roger Federer became the oldest man to reach the Roland Garros fourth round in 47 years on Friday as he registered a win in his record 400th Grand Slam match against Norwegian Casper Ruud.
37-year-old Federer outclassed Ruud in straight sets 6-3, 6-1, 7-6(8) to become the oldest man to book a last-16 place since the then 38-year-old Italian Nicola Pietrangeli, in 1972.
