If you’re Roger Federer, you’re probably not worrying about the allegations about you giving inside information, instead you continue doing what you’re best at…Tennis! Not but an hour ago (at the time of this post) Roger Federer set another notch on his domination belt, he just won his 900th career singles tennis match.
That’s right, 900, that sure is a lot. It took Federer only 49 minutes to send American Taylor Dent packing in complete disbelief, with a 6-1, 6-2 win today at the Stockholm Open. The 16 time Major champion upped his career overall record to 727-123 (it’s hard to swallow, we know).
Everyone can agree that his opening rounds at this tennis tournament have been somewhat “easy” – if it ever is easy – but he does face a slight challenge in his next round, where he faces fellow countryman, Stanislisas Wawrinka. Stanislisas is a powerful opponent and can give Federer a little bit of trouble, however; Federer has a dominant record against his countryman, leading 5-1.
So, hats off to Roger Federer for winning your 900th singles career match. We’ll bake you a cake for your 1000th win.
