No 8: Wimbledon 2006

Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer

bt Rafael Nadal 6-0 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (2-7) 6-3

The emergence of Rafael Nadal had confounded Roger Federer's hopes of winning a first French Open title, and now the Spaniard threatened on the grass of Wimbledon.

Federer went into the final having lost five straight matches against Nadal and looked keen to make amends when he won the first set to love.

Nadal found his feet to edge the third on a tie-break but the champion broke twice in the fourth to secure a fourth straight Wimbledon title.
