Federer, along with defending champion Novak Djokovic, are the only players in the Open Era to reach seven finals at the Australian Open.

Provided Djokovic does not reach the title match, a run to the final at the 2020 Australian Open for Federer would create a new record for most finals at the tournament.

In the pre-Open Era (before 1969), Jack Crawford and John Bromwich also reached seven Australian Open title matches.

#4 Oldest Grand Slam champion

A title run at the 2020 Australian Open would mark Federer's seventh triumph at the tournament. This would equal the record of Novak Djokovic for most titles at the Australian Open.

Federer's 21st Grand Slam title would also make him the oldest Grand Slam champion in the Open Era, and would increase his wafer-thin lead of one title over his closest challenger Rafael Nadal who has 19.
