Feliciano Lopez eyes Roger Federer's Majors appearances record!

The Spaniard player Feliciano Lopez will turn 36 in September, but the Spaniard player is still willing and motivated to keep playing. At the Roland Garros Lopez is playing his 61th Grand Slam event in a row and aims to equal Roger Federer's 65 appearances. The Swiss player ended his streak last year at the Roland Garros, and so Lopez should play all the next five Slams, it means until 2018 Wimbledon, to surpass him. 'It would be an award to my career and consistency, and not to get injured too', said Lopez about the chance to equal Federer.

'I enjoy tennis, every moment on the Tour is an award. Slam wins give me a bigger joy than the past. It's a difficult record, but it would be beautiful', added the 35-year-old Toledo native, who is the defending champion with Marc Lopez in the Roland Garros Doubles main draw.
