Roger Federer & Novak Djokovic streaking in Paris!
You’re on to me by now. The misleading headlines, the shirtless photos.
It’s a post about tennis!
At today’s French Open, the greatest male player of all time and the current best player in the world added to a couple of very impressive streaks: Roger Federer, winner of 16 major titles and the 2009 champion in Paris, won his fourth round match against Stanislas Wawrika to reach the quarterfinals of a grand slam tournament for the 28th consecutive time!
That’s now a men’s record beating Jimmy Connors’ mark of 27.
Meanwhile, the red-hot Novak Djokovic beat Richard Gasquet in his fourth-round match to extend his winning streak in 2011 to 41 matches and 43 straight matches overall. His stellar run the third-longest in history and if he wins this tournament, he will tie Guillermo Vilas’ record of 46 in a row set in 1977.
