There have been matches in the men’s singles competition at Federer’s record for semi-final appearances across all Grand Slam events.
Andy Murray and Johanna Konta may have fell just short in the singles, but Jamie Murray ensured that there was at least one British winner at Wimbledon this fortnight, as he yesterday won the mixed doubles title alongside Martina Hingis. The duo only decided to strike up a partnership in the days leading up to The Championships, but breezed through the draw without dropping a single set, overcoming defending champions Heather Watson and Henri Kontinen in the final on Centre Court. Their victory was the perfect way for the pair to celebrate important landmarks in both of their respective careers.

He was He had yet to reach No. Not only had the guy never won a Grand Slam tournament, he’d never even been past the quarterfinals at one. He was coming off a first-round loss at the French Open a month earlier, and another at the All England Club a year earlier. When all was said and done two weeks later, Federer was crying, cradling the champion’s gold trophy.
And now? When play begins at Wimbledon on Monday, with Federer closing in on his 37th birthday, he will have the honor of playing the first match at Centre Court as the defending champion. He earned his record eighth title at the grass-court major a year ago, and he ran his total Grand Slam haul to a record 20 men’s singles trophies by winning the Australian Open in January.
He was speaking about his own success. But he might as well have been talking about the two-man supremacy exhibited by himself and his greatest rival, Rafael Nadal. Nadal, 32, hadn’t even entered a major tournament in
