Roger Federer's withdrawal from the 2016 French Open earlier this year ended his ironman streak at the Slams—the Swiss had played in a record 65 straight singles main draws.
Federer returned to major tournament play at Wimbledon—where he reached the semifinals—but on Tuesday he announced that he would miss the remainder of the 2016 season, including the Rio Olympics and the U.S. Open, with a knee injury. In his honor is a recap of the 65 consecutive majors he played in from 2000-2016. Part one, stretching from 2000-07, is below, and part two is here.
1. 2000 Australian Open: Federer began his streak as an 18-year-old by defeating 28-year-old Michael Chang, 6-4, 6-4, 7-6 (5). He'd go on to reach the third round before losing to Arnaud Clement.
