Interestingly, that record is set by none other than his rival on the court, Roger Federer. Even after 16 years, the record is safe and sound and the Serb still hunts for the success that once his Swiss rival emulated on the court.

In 2007, Roger Federer did something incredible at the Australian Open that even Novak Djokovic hasn’t managed to do to date. He won the whole tournament without losing a single set in any of his seven matches. That means he won 21 sets in a row! No other male player has ever done that in the Open Era of tennis. Federer’s incredible performance showed how skilled and focused he was during the tournament.

Even though Novak Djokovic has won the Australian Open ten times, he hasn’t managed to do what Federer did in 2007. Despite Djokovic’s success, Federer’s flawless victory remains unmatched. It’s like a special record that stands out because no one else has been able to do it. Federer’s perfect run in Melbourne is still remembered as one of the greatest achievements in tennis.
