2 mins read


The three-time Grand Slam champion had set himself the goal of winning 700 matches and reaching 50 titles – he currently holds 46 – as part of his continued comeback from hip surgery and managed to tick the first one off the list on Friday.

After joining the elite club of active players who had reached the milestone, he said: “It’s a target that I set myself at the end of last year and obviously happy to achieve it, there aren’t too many guys that have managed to do that.

“With everything that has gone on in the last two years I could have been way past 700. I kept fighting and got there and now I’ve got to try and reach another target, another milestone, but yeah, this is a good one.” 

Looking ahead to his next match and the future he added: “Yeah, let’s go for 800.”
