Roger Federer hit the 350th Grand Slam victory at 2019 Wimbledon

"Express train" Roger Federer passed 2019 Wimbledon's third round with a 7-5, 6-2, 7-6 victory over Lucas Pouille on July 6th.

The victory after two hours and eight minutes helped Roger Federer become the first player to hit the 350 Grand Slam victory. "Express train" is also the first 17 times to enter the fourth round of Wimbledon, breaking the record of Jimmy Connors. Federer's next opponent is Matteo Berretini - an Italian player with a high level on the pitch.

In the match against Lucas Pouille yesterday, Federer faces the risk of losing his first set for the second time of the week. But the Swiss player displayed the right timing, saved two break-points in games 7 and 11. Federer then won the last game to save the ball in the set and won 7-5.

Pouille entered the Australian Open semi-finals earlier this year, and didn't mind playing with Federer. But the rush of 27th seed in the second set caused him to lead 0-4. Federer lets the opponent shorten the score to 2-4, but "Express Train" wins the next two games to close the set with a score of 6-2.

Set of three witnessed strong resistance from Pouille. The French player didn't lose any game in the set, saved match-point when the score was 5-6 and put the match set into the tie-break series. But Federer takes the first point of the series thanks to the payback phase and pushes Pouille into a passive position. The 27th seed could not get up and accepted 4-7 defeat in the tie-break series. Federer won the final 7-5, 6-2, 7-6.

During the match, Federer had 39 winner points, 14 self-defeating errors and successfully used 44% break-points. "Winning and setting a record is great,"

Federer said of the 350 Grand Slam victory. "But this record is normal. In ancient times, players often did not play enough Grand Slams because of difficult travel conditions. I think in the last 20 years, new players have attended four major tournaments each year. Anyway, this is still a beautiful milestone. "
