No 6: US Open 2005
Roger Federer and Andre Agassi

bt Andre Agassi 6-3 2-6 7-6 (7-1) 6-1

Roger Federer took on a legend and the hopes of a nation when he faced Andre Agassi in his second US Open final.

And the 35-year-old American gave Federer one of his sternest tests to date, leading by a break in the third set before the Swiss hit back to win in four.

"He's the best I've ever played against," Agassi said as Federer became the first man in the open era to win Wimbledon and the US Open back-to-back in consecutive years.
