No 4: US Open 2004
Lleyton Hewitt and Roger Federer

bt Lleyton Hewitt 6-0 7-6 (7-3) 6-0

A magnificent year for Roger Federer was capped with a first US Open title at Flushing Meadows in New York, making him the first man since Mats Wilander in 1988 to win three Grand Slam titles in a year.

Former champion Hewitt arrived in the final on a 16-match winning streak but was blown away by Federer at his absolute best.

The world number one swept through a magnificent opening set to love in just 18 minutes and, after a valiant effort from Hewitt in the second, Federer repeated the trick in the third set.
