Stopped Federer from tying all-time Sampras’s record of 286 weeks at No. 1 by just seven freaking days. Considering how sacred anything associated with No. 1 rank seems to be for Federer this one should be up there – for sometime to come.
Held Federer back from beating Borg’s record of five straight Wimbledon titles and possibly tying Sampras’s record of most Wimbledon titles (7) in open era.
Snapped Federer’s 65 match winning streak on grass courts by beating him in his own backyard – in five sets (Federer’s domain).
Clouded Federer’s clear path to GOATness with wrenches that seem endless and relentless.
Denied Federer from reaching 22 Slams as of today by beating him @ 6 Slam finals – on all three surfaces.
Dampened the ‘wonder’ at Federer earning just the second career Slam in open era by not just following one of his own the very next season but even initiate a debate questioning the one Federer earned by literally rampaging through the clay season this year.
Beating Federer @ Roland Garros finals in straight sets – with a bagel and a breadstick – in just 108 minutes.
Hitting on Diana Federer.
Manipulating Mirka to go for the ‘hit’ – with poked condoms.
Praising Djokovic’s ability to not cry like a girl after beating him @ US Open finals with ‘it’s good for the kids’.
