Federer Behind Another Jimmy Connors Record

Federer confirms himself as the best tennis player in the world

The Swiss tennis player, Roger Federer reached 1,200 victories in his career within the circuit of the ATP, being only the second player in history to get it.

Jimmy Connors, who has 1,274 games won, the Swiss has ahead 74 eventual games, of course, if Federer manages to have a longer career.

The third place in this category is occupied by the Czech-American Ivan Lendl with 1,068.


– Guillermo Vilas (ARG) with 949. – Rafa Nadal (ARG) 936. – John McEnroe (USA) 881) – Andre Agassi (SUI) 870 – Novak Djokovic (SER) 853.

Could it be that we will witness an epic record?

Federer continues his way in the Mutua Madrid Open 2019 and suffered to advance to the quarterfinals during his encounter with the Frenchman Gael Monfils, who managed to win by partial 6-0, 4-6 and 7-6 (6- 3). With two hours in total, the number three in the world complicated by much his stay in Real Madrid, to include two “Match Points” by his opponent, but took advantage of their experience to paddle in murky waters.

In the first set, the Swiss showed without problems his superiority and did not let him breathe to 18th place in the ranking with an overwhelming score of 6-0.

For the second set, the French tennis player recovered from a big blow from his rival, however, the Basel native, again gave him a chair at times of how he has to play a Masters and could win the set 4-6.

When arriving at the definitive set, Monfils had more confidence to face a fierce Federer to the victory, in a tight duel, the “Break Point” was the one who would decide the fate of the two warriors of the white sport; however, luck ended up falling on the side of the Swiss and thus finish the match with a 7-6 (6-3).

After this result, the Swiss tennis player will face in the quarterfinals the Austrian Dominic Thiem, who won his match against Italian Fabio Fognini with sets of 6-4 and 7-5.
