No 9: US Open 2006
Andy Roddick, Roger Federer and Tiger Woods

bt Andy Roddick 6-2 4-6 7-5 6-1

Roger Federer went into his third successive US Open final with an overwhelming 10-1 record against home favourite Andy Roddick.

However, the 2003 champion put up a determined display and had his chances with break points in the third set before Federer got the crucial break in game 12 and raced through the fourth.

Victory saw him become the first man since Ivan Lendl in 1987 to win three straight US Opens, and the first man in the open era to win three straight Wimbledon and US Open titles in successive years.
