Roger Federer overtakes Serena Williams with most Grand Slam matches won
Roger Federer overtook Serena Williams for the most matches won in Grand Slams on Saturday as he defeated Mischa Zverev in the third round of Wimbledon in three sets. He surpassed Williams’ 316 for an all-time record 317 Grand Slam singles match wins. Federer got the better of 27th seed Zverev, defeating him 7-6 (3), 6-4, 6-4 in one hour and 50 minutes to register his 87th Wimbledon win.
World No. 5 Federer now has 317 wins in Grand Slam, closely followed by Williams, who has not played tennis after Australian Open due to pregnancy. Martina Navratilova (306) and Chris Evert (299) follow Williams in the top four list of Grand Slam match wins.
The Swiss maestro has left his male colleagues far behind in the most Grand Slam wins record, with Novak Djokovic in the second position with only 236 wins, Jimmy Connors’ 233, Andre Agassi’s 225, Ivan Lendl 222 and Rafael Nadal on 217.

Last September, Williams had beaten Federer’s record of most Grand Slam matches with her 308th win in the Open era. When asked last year who she thinks would end up with the most wins between the two, she had replied, “I don’t know. Hopefully we’ll both keep going. I know I plan on it. I know he does. So we’ll see.”Also ReadNovak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz set to meet again in group stage of Dav...Watch: Jannik Sinner wins a 46-shot rally against Tommy PaulDoes Steffi Graf ever age?
