Feliciano Lopez won his first-round match at Wimbledon, but that was almost secondary to just playing it.
This was Lopez's 66th Grand Slam event in a row, breaking the previous record of 65 that belonged to Roger Federer.
"When I was about breaking the record, I thought, wow, I'm going to beat Federer at something, which is a lot already," said Lopez. "Of course it means a lot to me.
"I'm really proud of my consistency. Is not about, you know, the number of Grand Slams played. It's about how many years have been playing, you know, at the top level. This is the most important thing.
"This is what I thought at this stage of my career was the most important thing, to stay healthy and to be able to compete against these monsters [the top players], because for me I played in the past against other monsters, but after the 30s it was so important for me to stay fresh and healthy...because the level overall is getting higher and higher in the last decade."
