I stopped watching tennis when Steffi retired, but since years I like it again because of Roger. He reminds me so much of her. I know they have different personalities, but there are some similarities. Their footwork is the best I ahve ever seen.
You know I was exactly like you...after Steffi retired in 1999 I stopped caring about tennis.
I still always watched Wimbledon...but that was it...Roger changed all that though.
So yeah, in my opinion...if there is one person who is deserving of equalling and breaking Steffi's record(s) it is Roger Federer.
If it was anyone else...I might be a bit upset too...but Roger is truly deserving.
I see similarities in both of them too...though I think Steffi was far more mentally tough than Roger.
Isn't it already broken? He is now at 187? Or not?
If I am right he is at 186 now. So yes, the record is (defenitely) going to get broken.
Yes this Monday marked the completion of 186 weeks. On the 27th of August it will be 187 and the new record
I am pretty sure Steffi will keep her GS singles titles record. :P
haha yeah I dont think even Roger will be able to break that one...though you never know...if there is someone who could potentially do it, it's him.
But yeah, Roger was saying how in the Womens game the records are always so much larger than in the mens...
so for him to be breaking a womens all-time record...and making it THE record for all of tennis, is really quite something...
