Roger Federer has defeated David Ferrer by 6-4 6-0 today and shows himself into the semifinals of the Monte Carlo tournament. The milestone that really matters is that the match was the 500th victory in Roger Federer's career.
In his career so far, Roger Federer has a record of 500 wins and only 127 losses. More impressive are his numbers since he got to the number one rank of the ATP tour.
