By this years USO, Federer will be tied for most appearances at the slams

At 56 appearances

Pretty impressive. I think it is not as impressive as his QF streak (though the QF streak is a pretty arbitrary stat).

Thoughts?

It is already connected with many records that Roger continues a game. He also made record of the number of GS victory games from this AO. However, it is hardly news.


as usual




Nadal "Sampras, Ivanisevic match. or one between those kind of players, is not enjoyable. It's not really tennis. it is a few swings of the racquet. For me in the past it was just serve. serve". arrogance.

clay excluded. successive win 0.  If grass and a hard are fast. Like Sampras era. Nadal is able to win only with clay. power of defense and muscles. boring ugly. All the surface is slow now.

fake time-out. cheat. gamesmanship. too noisy annoying always. excuse. boycotts threatened. always dissatisfaction cry complaints. dissatisfaction to schedule. selfish two-year ranking. bump to player. ugly protest. always exaggerated appeal of self condition. etc. overrated by fanatic arrogant blind fan

That particular record will not be broken for a very looong time

When you hold the most weeks at #1 and the most majors, the other achievements seem somewhat meh. No disrespect to Ferreira or Santoro but longevity doesn't really reflect quality or competitiveness. If you're going deep in to those majors – like Federer is – great; if you're losing 1R and 2R – as Ferreira was – not so great.
