2012 Wimbledon: Federer gets to 33rd QF in a Row

There's a reason why they call him the Maestro, the Greatest of all Time and the Federer Express. Despite going off the court to have a lower back injury treated in the first set against Xavier Malisse, 16-time major champion Roger Federer was able to reach his astonishing 33rd major quarterfinal in a row by winning 7-6(1) 6-1 4-6 6-3 despite being down an early break in the 1st, 3rd and 4th sets!

Federer has now been in the quarterfinals of every major tournament since the 2004 Wimbledon (which he won) and since he had reached 4 major quarterfinals before that, he has a career total so far of 37! He has played in an astonishing 51 major tournaments in a row.
