Re: There is no finish line...
So Fed notches up the 750th win of his career and in so doing, ties Edberg for the record of having won the most matches at the Australian Open in the Open Era (56 match wins). For a moment I thought that Roger would have to wait until next year to add this record to his long list of achievements, but it's great to see him pull through in the end.
Needless to say, a win against Malisse in R3 would see him overtake his childhood idol. On that note though, does anyone know the record for most consecutive R3 or better performances at Grand Slam tournaments (without absences from slams during the streak)?
