    Also, federer just reached his 44th round of last 16 (or 4th round, whatever you prefer) grand slam match, yes, a minor footnote, compared to all his other records, but he has just surpassed the 43 of connors and now holds also this record on his own; if he wins his next match, it will be his 38th QF, just 3 away from connors 41 quarters;

    GS wise, it’s one of only 3 records he still has left to beat (the others are most participations: currently 54, santoro has 70 and consecutive participations: currently 52, ferreira has 56).

    ALL the other GS records, including number of points, games, and sets won are already his so every time he wins a match he is just adding to his own records

      Great points – Federer’s case is strong and it gets stronger every time he steps on the court.

        hi Dan, i think fed got a walkover in australia this year, so he is only 19-2 for 2012 as walkovers don’t count, of course he could get the 20th win if he beats fish tommorow

      2. Dan Martin says:

        I see your point – I am sure a few walkovers were present in his earlier years as well, but I think he has hit 20 every year except maybe this year since 2004

  2. ofcourse he was the CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS……..
