bt Andy Roddick 4-6 7-5 7-6 (7-3) 6-4
Roger Federer successfully defended his Wimbledon title but not without a fight as Andy Roddick attempted to avenge his semi-final defeat of the previous year.
The Swiss benefited from two rain delays after falling a break behind at one set all, coming out to break back and dominate the tie-break.
Roddick forced six more break points in the fourth set but could not covert and Federer took the win to maintain his 100% record in Grand Slams final. More tears followed as he told the BBC's Sue Barker, "I got lucky today for sure."
