Updated May 24, 12:44 PM
PARIS - When the French Open starts Sunday, Roger Federer will be in his 54th consecutive Grand Slam tournament.
If he enters Wimbledon and the U.S. Open later this year, he'll tie the record of 56 in a row set by Wayne Ferreira from 1991-2004.
He's not simply showing up, of course: Federer has reached at the least the quarterfinals at the past 35 majors, winning a record 17 titles.
