Will Roger's Grass Streak Hit 66 at Wimbledon?

ATP stats and information guru Greg Sharko looks at the numbers behind the stories of the ATP tour in his regular column, 'Shark Bites'. With an eye on Wimbledon, Shark takes a look at five-time defending champion Roger Federer's astounding grass court winning streak. Also, he examines the history of the elusive Roland Garros-Wimbledon 'double'.

Federer’s Year-by-Year Wimbledon Titles
Roger Federer has ruled as King of Grass with five consecutive Wimbledon titles. During his 34-match unbeaten streak at the All England Club, Federer has won 102 of 110 sets. And he's been taken to the five-sets limit only once during the streak, that coming in last year's final against Rafael Nadal. Here's a look at Federer' dominance at Wimbledon:

Very impressive stats. It's hard to believe he can handle the pressure for so long. It just shows he's living a very relaxed happy life with nothing much to worry about, doing what he wants to do.

Unbelievable statistics. Let's just hope he can add at least 1 more title.

I would be happy if he were simply to extend the match winning streak to 66...........................this grass season. Then extend it another 12 matches next grass season. Then another..........u get the point.

Just like it was in the semis of Mone Carlo
