Roger Federer On The Verge Of Another Record
Roger Federer has tied John MnEnroe’s record streak of 11 consecutive straight-sets win in Grand Slams.
He won 7-6 (7-3), 6-4, 6-4 against Mikhail Youzhny of Russia and has reached quarter finals of the French Open.
Roger’s straight sets wins started in the Australian Open where he won his 10th Grand Slam title.
But he is really not interested in records:
“But it is something which is quite special, I would say. It is true that during this period, I could have lost some sets. I had some service points and all of a sudden, there is a streak.
But I’m focused on Roland Garros and I want to win my matches. And if I can win in three sets, I mean, so much the better. But I’m not looking for these types of records.”
Here are Roger’s wins from Australian Open until today:
