Roger Federer made it to the semifinals of the 2011 French Open without losing a single set at Roland Garros, making him the only male in the tournament to do so.

But how good has he actually been playing?

Federer has only been pushed to two tiebreakers in 15 sets, winning both by the score 6-3. The Swiss No. 3 seed has handled everything that's been thrown at him, including three consecutive wins over seeded players.

Here are the scorelines for his five matches heading into the semifinals: 

1st round vs. Feliciano Lopez: 6-4, 6-3, 7-6(3)

2nd round vs. Maxime Teixeira 6-3, 6-0, 6-2

Round of 32 vs. No. 29 Janko Tipsarevic 6-1, 6-4, 6-3

Round of 16 vs. No. 14 Stanislas Wawrinka 6-3, 6-2, 6-5

Quarterfinals vs. No. 9 Gael Monfils 6-4, 6-3, 7-6(3)

Next up for 16-time Grand Slam champion is Novak Djokovic, who is currently riding a 43-match win streak. Three of his 43 victories have came against Federer, pulling their career series to 13-9 in favor of Federer. Djokovic's three straight wins came after a three-game losing streak to the former No. 1.

Before Federer takes the court to face the Serbian, let's evaluate his performance in Paris thus far.
