Roger Federer reached a major milestone after winning 300 grand slam singles matches on Friday’s Australian Open win
After 17 Grand Slam titles, the most weeks spent at world No.1 and a staggering 67 major appearances, it’s hard to fathom that there are still more records for Roger Federer to amass.
And yet the world No.3 notched another one as he outclassed Grigor Dimitrov 6-4 3-6 6-1 6-4 on Friday in the third round of Australian Open 2016, becoming the first man to amass 300 match wins at Grand Slam level.
“It’s very exciting, I must tell you. Like when I reached 1000 last year, it was a big deal for me. Not something I ever aimed for or looked for, but when it happens, it’s very special,It’s harder than ever for young players to reach the top, win Slams.” said Federer, who now trails overall Grand Slam match winner Martina Navratilova by just six matches.
