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.
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.
