Former world number one Australia’s Ken Rosewall is set to sell his trophies at an auction.
The 88-year-old has had a great career at the highest level, where he ended up winning as many as 133 titles.
It was because of this reason he became the world number in men’s singles tennis in 1961. Later he was also inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame.
However, in a surprising turn of events, Rosewall has decided to sell his trophies at an auction. It is not yet clear what the motive behind such a move is.
Rosewall also had an impressive record while playing at the Grand Slams where he won eight titles.
His first major trophy was the Australian Open in 1953 when he defeated Mervyn Rose in the final with a score of 6–0, 6–3, 6–4.
His last major triumph also came while playing in Melbourne in 1972 when he defeated Mal Anderson in the final with a score of 7–6(7–2), 6–3, 7–5.
His most successful competition has also been the Australian Open where he lifted the title four times. Other than that, he also won the French Open and the US Open two times each.
