The Roger Federer Equation: When the Swiss broke Sampras' record

The Roger Federer Equation: when the Swiss Maestro broke Pete Sampras's Slam record. It was 2009, a very important year for Federer. The Swiss lost another final against Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open. His rival seemed unbeatable.

The impossible happened at Roland Garros: Robin Soderling eliminated Nadal in the fourth round and he lost in the final against the Swiss Maestro. Roger, in one blink of an eye, got the Career Grand Slam and equaled Pete Sampras with 14 Majors.

A few weeks later, on the lawns of the All England Club, he defeated Andy Roddick in an epic final, winning his 15th Slam and becoming the record holder of the most number of Slams won, a record he has held for 11 years now.

Federer winning the French Open-Wimbledon double also saw him complete the Channel Slam: winning the French Open and Wimbledon in the same year. Very few players have managed to complete this feat. These include Rod Laver, Bjorn Borg, and Rafael Nadal.

The Roger Federer Equation is a fun spot that shows Roger Federer's Slam record: a fun and exciting memory in a particular historical moment without the Game, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
