Federer's Quarter Final Slam Streak
 
When Roger hangs up his racket does any of you think he'll retire with that streak intact? That streak since Wimbledon 2004 is an utterly amazing feat in my opinion and I can't see it being halted any time soon. Gustavo Kuerten I believe was the last person to beat Federer before the quarter finals...correct me if I'm wrong.

Honestly, I'm not nearly as impressed by the streak as I used to be.

Djokovic is now at 11 straight semifinal appearances, so he's about half way to Federer's 23. There's a good chance he gets really close to that.

When they seed the top 32 players, and men's tennis clearly lacks depth these days...it's not really that mind-boggling. Federer's avoided a Rosol situation, barely, on several occasions...but he won those matches with his mental strength advantage.

You're not as impressed because someone came close to half of what Federer achieved? :lol:

LOL pure ownage, just because Fed is so great and his records so amazing, people try and downplay them just because he has been around for a while now, it has become the "norm"

How can you not be impressed with 35 straight QF's in slams? The fact that he even entered that many straight major tournaments is pretty damn impressive I'd say. There is no way Djoker will match Fed's 23 SF's. That would mean making it to the SF's in every major from now until the AO in 2016. And he's almost 26.

There's also a good chance he won't, given his matches against Wawrinka at the Australian this year and against Tsonga at the French last year.

It really is a tribute to both Novak and Roger that they have managed to be this consistent, when you have the occasional huge performances from random top-but-not-elite guys and they still manage to come out on top.
