ALL-TIME Consecutive Slam Leader with 56 Consecutive SLAMS !
He breaks tie with Edberg at Wimbledon THIS YEAR ! YET another
Record is going to Fall.

LMFAO at the HATERS Over and Over again !

Most consecutive grand slams played
1. South Africa Wayne Ferreira 56
2. Sweden Stefan Edberg 54
3. Switzerland Roger Federer 53

Yes, 128 match wins to Agassi's 127 is one thing, 131 advancements to 127 is another. There is little principal difference between Fed beating Fish in a WO and Agassi beating Grosjean 6-2, 2-0 RET. Fed only has three victories from retirements, whereas Agassi has six, so in terms of match points won, Fed is ahead 125 - 121.

It would be nice to see Fed get number 5 here - he's been so solid at the AO for so many years, active SF and QF streak going.

Federer - Emperor of the Slams, King of Hard, Lord of the Australian Open, Lord of Wimbledon.

From the highlights Fed looked pretty good for a first match back on tour. Not a difficult opponent but still good to see him playing well early on, something which wasn't characteristic of much of 2010/2011

Great start considering he hasn't played on the tour since the WTF. Exactly what was needed. Tomug is fucked.

Amen!

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!

I like Benoit, but in hindsight he didn't have a chance. Nothing more to say.
