Ivo Karlovic showed there was still life in his legs at the age of 40 as he came through in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4, 7-6 (7/4) over Italian Andrea Arnaboldi.

"Yes, definitely, because they can now," said Karlovic when asked would there be other players who would play into their 40s.

"Nowadays everybody does a lot of work off the courts. In the 80s maybe it was not the case.

"Everyone is doing a lot of track and gym work to prolong their careers and are still winning at ages of 38-39. They are never going to stop!"

Ivo Karlovic became the oldest man to win a match at the French Open for 46 years on Tuesday as he beat Spain's fellow veteran Feliciano Lopez in a first-round duel.

Karlovic, who turned 40 in February, won 7-6(4) 7-5 6-7(7) 7-5 in a match featuring players with a combined age of 77 -- the oldest in a Grand Slam in the professional era.

Karlovic became the oldest man to win at Roland Garros since Torben Ulrich in 1973 at the age of 44. He is also the oldest male player to win a Grand Slam match since Ken Rosewall, also 44, did so at the 1978 Australian Open.

Kyrgios beats Karlovic In Cincinnati

Nick Kyrgios defeated Ivo Karlovic of Croatia in a 4-6, 7-6, 6-3 and advanced to his third ATP World Tour Masters 1000 quarter-final of the year.

"It was tough, obviously," said Kyrgios. "Coming back today, I had a very slow start. It was very windy out there, so I couldn't get anything going on my serve. Obviously he can serve through any sort of type of conditions. I just had to stay tough. Obviously, I got a couple of lucky points in the tie-break and forced a third set. I just managed to find some rhythm and find some energy and obviously take the third set."
