Swiss Federer sets another milestone

By Beeyong Sison

    Paris, France:  After beating German Tobias Kamke 6-2 7-5 6-3 in the French Open first round, Roger Federer set another milestone in his ever growing achievement tying Jimmy Connors' Open era record of 233 matches won in Grand Slam events.

 

     Connors’ record in the four majors spanned 20 years setting a win-loss record of 233-49 but Roger Federer is 233-35 only after 10 years - an amazing feat!

 

     Federer, who owns 16 major titles, is playing in his 50th consecutive major tournament, the longest active streak and third-longest in the Open era, which began in 1968, when professionals were allowed into the Grand Slams.

 

     Federer is trying to win another major title has gone more than two years without a slam crown. It is his longest drought since winning his first at Wimbledon in 2003 here at my favorite tournament also called as ‘Tournoi de Roland Garros’.

 

    The event is named after Roland Garros, a French Aviator who right before the outbreak of World War I gained fame in 1913 for making the first non-stop flight across the Mediterranean Sea from Fréjus, in the south of France, to Bizerte in Tunisia.

 

    Held during the months of late May and early June, the second of the four annual major tennis event is by far the most gruelling, physically demanding tennis tournament in the world.

 

    Roland Garros has the widest worldwide broadcasting and audience of all regular events in tennis. The other three Grand Slams are Wimbledon, the Australian and U.S. Opens.

    I have got one suggestion for your website. It appears like there are a couple of cascading stylesheet issues while launching a number of webpages in google chrome as well as opera. It is operating alright in internet explorer. Probably you can double check this.

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours these days, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful value enough for me. In my view, if all website owners
    and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet might be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    Last night was the first time I got to watch San Antonio for any stretch, and they did not impress. As a team Pop always has them start slow and build, he gets that it’s a grind, so I take it with
    some salt, but they looked a step slow. Winning in Utah is never easy, but SA did not impress me much. And Reed is right, Denver has impressed me more so far. But, I remember writing about being the
    best team in November…..
