Federer-24 Straight Grand Slam QF!

He didn't quite reach SF this year but 24 straight QF or better is still totally incredible so the QF streak is still alive!

Re: Federer-24 Straight Grand Slam QF!

Maybe we should celebrate his 44 straight 1st rounds?

Re: Federer-24 Straight Grand Slam QF!

He's still behind Connors in this statistic if only the slams participated in are taken into account.

Yes, he lost inthe first round of the French Open in 1999, 2002 and 2003 and also lost at the first round at Wimbledon in 1999, 2000 and 2002.

Interesting to see that he lost in the first round at FO 2003 just before his extraordinary period of dominance started.

I'm sure Federer will still continue to do very well at majors. It's just the SF streak that has been broken, in much the same way that his finals streak was broken after the loss to Djokovic at AO 2008.

When you want to avoid negative comments you shouldn't post on MTF

Every winning streak is coming to an end one day. Roger once said if he would be afraid of losing winning streaks he would have to quit playing tennis.
He had a little luck in a few matches to keep his winning streak in the GS tournaments alive, but it was about to happen one day that a player in an earlier round would be the better player over 3 sets - and not just over 2 or 2 1/2

Untouchable streak at 23. As these start to fall, he'll have even less and less pressure.

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS
