Roger Federer stomps Juan Martin Del Potro in record breaking tennis match
When Roger Federer stepped up his game making it to the semifinals, he had one thought in his head and one thought only — to continue advancing throughout the Olympics hoping to remain a champion.
He did just that. Federer, in one of the longest tennis matches in history (4 hours 26 minutes). Federer completed his pounce on Potro by a sum of 6 points, just a mere six points and Potro could’ve been crowned the champion.
In the match, Potro who stands to be 6’6 hit 11 aces whilst the sneaky Federer managed to hit 24.
