An unprecedented 20th Grand Slam win for Roger Federer is not the only record that the Swiss maestro has under his belt that might not be broken in tennis history.
On the morning of August 8, 1981, at the canton hospital in Basel, Switzerland, the legend, Roger Federer was born. “He was named Roger because it could also be pronounced in English,” wrote Rene Stauffer in his book “Roger Federer: Quest for perfection.” Roger’s parents, even in the first hours of his life felt that one day it could be beneficial for their son to have a name that was easy to pronounce in English.
Did you know that in 2014, for the first time in his career, Roger Federer won the final point of the tennis calendar when he won the 4th rubber to win the Davis Cup final for Switzerland?
If you think this fact was amazing, you’re in for a flabbergasting next 15 minutes:
Federer once went 105 points without an unforced error.
Yes, that’s right a whopping and unbelievable 105 POINTS!
This was against John Isner in US open 2007!
