Roger Federer alphabetical domination continues at Roland Garros 2019 | ATP Tour

Let us state that this will not go down as one of Roger Federer's crown achievements. But the Swiss legend recorded a spicy milestone on Roland Garros on Wednesday. Federer had never confronted a player on tour events, whose last name began with the letter "O" in 1 ,466 career single matches before today. Federer did well this hole in his summary when he doubled dipped against Oscar Otte and beat the German loser 6-4, 6-3, 6-4. Federer played American Alex O & # 39; Brien 1999 Surbiton Challenger, but Challengers are not tour level events. Federer has now played opponents with last names starting with 25 of the alphabet's 26 letters, missing only the & # 39; X & # 39;. (Of course he has played Belgium's Xavier Malisse.)
