Roger Federer set another record today by reaching his 28th straight Grand Slam final. Federer broke the tie he had with Jimmy Connors at 27 after easily defeating his countryman Stanislas Wawrinka 63, 62, 75 this afternoon in the French Open fourth round.
“He showed all his qualities in the third set and was a bit unlucky,” said Federer. “I am super happy because I knew after he beat Tsonga, when he really dominated in the last two sets, what the danger was.”
Through his first matches Federer has yet to drop a set. Next for the former No. 1 is the winner of the ongoing Gael Monfils vs. David Ferrer which is in the third set.
If the two player do not finish tonight they will resume tomorrow with the winner playing a third straight day against Federer on Tuesday in the quarterfinals.
