Roger Federer Wins 1,200th Match

(CNN)Back on clay and back winning matches, Roger Federer has reached yet another landmark: a 1,200th career victory more than two decades after his first professional win.

The 20-time grand slam winner saved two match points against France's Gael Monfils before coming through in a final-set tiebreak to reach the quarterfinals of the Madrid Open, in his first tournament on clay since May 2016.

Federer's victory puts him just 74 match wins behind Jimmy Connors, who holds the men's record.
