166-0 … Career record of Roger Federer when leading by two sets at a major after Wednesday’s second-round victory over Gilles Simon.

Amazing.

Question: how many times was he pushed to 5 after leading 2-0?

The stat is freaking amazing, but as Ivan said, how many times has he been pushed to five after being two sets up(and in majors)? I doubt Nadal/Djoker/Murray lost many matches in majors after being two sets up. I doubt that most players out there have the balls to push on when Fed/Nadal/Murray/Djoker have two sets on them.

This reminds of a ridiculous Nadal record in GS: he's 106-1 after winning the first set in GS, the only defeat being at the hands of Ferrer in USO 2007.

its more impressive I think that he's gone up 2-0 in so many matches. once the great federer is up 2-0 who would even try to win? would you expect him ever to lose?
still a great stat to be in possession of.

Nalbandian in the TMC 2005 aswell, he was pushed to five and eventually lost.

7-6(4), 7-6(11), 2-6, 1-6, 6-7(3)

Nadal's already at 122.

Edit: Scratch that, it's actually 94-0 when leading 2 sets to love.
