No 5: Wimbledon 2005

Roger Federer and Andy Roddick

bt Andy Roddick 6-2 7-6 (7-2) 6-4

After seeing his Grand Slam winning streak end at the hands of Marat Safin at the Australian Open and Rafael Nadal at the French Open, Roger Federer was keen to get back to winning ways at Wimbledon.

Unlike the previous year, Andy Roddick could not get close to the Swiss in the final and Federer was rarely troubled as he joined Pete Sampras and Bjorn Borg as the only players in the open era to win three Wimbledon titles in a row.

"I came here with huge expectations and to be standing here with the trophy is almost a dream," he said.
