Roger Federer on Friday became the first male tennis player in history to win 300 Grand Slam matches.

For a player who failed to win a Grand Slam in 2015, and who some have tagged as being past his prime, it is a staggering achievement, and proves yet again his class and longevity.

The Swiss saw off Grigor Dimitrov 6-4 3-6 6-1 6-4 in round three at Rod Laver Arena to reach the milestone.
