Coffee-powered Bopanna becomes oldest Masters champReutersCoffee connoisseur Rohan Bopanna on Saturday credited the special Indian blends he consumes on Tour for his success after the 43-year-old became the oldest ATP Masters 1000 champion by winning the men’s doubles title at the BNP Paribas Open. The biggest thing is to make sure you recover well after matches and that’s really helped me,” Bopanna said. Bopanna beat the record held by former partner Daniel Nestor and said that taking care of his body had paid off. Some days I tell Matt I maybe just practiced 20 minutes, but I’d rather rest the body and be ready for our matches,” Bopanna said. Indian doubles great Mahesh Bhupathi hailed former playing partner Bopanna’s longevity and ability to peak late in his career.
