4 in a row

Roger Federer the tennis legend does it again. It's no more a surprise to see the legendary swiss tennis ace Federer winning a grandslam consecutively. Roger Federer is now aiming to beat the record set by Pete Sampras of winning 14 grandslam titles overall. By looking at his form there is no way of stopping him from that record. It's likely that he could break that record in the coming year only.

In the U.S. open finals he overcame the rejuvenated Novak Djokovic in hardfought straight set victory 7-6,7-6,6-4.He becomes the first man ever to win Wimbledon and the US Open for four years in a row, and the first to win four straight US titles since Bill Tilden in 1923.Federer came from behind to win both of the first two sets in tie-breaks, and was satisfied that he had been able to raise his game at the decisive moments.

Federer has been ranked World No. 1 (since February 2, 2004) for 189 consecutive weeks, the longest of any player - male or female.In 2007, he was named Laureus World Sportsman of the Year for a record third consecutive time.
