No 12: US Open 2007
Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic

bt Novak Djokovic 7-6 (7-4) 7-6 (7-2) 6-4

Having seen off Rafael Nadal to win Wimbledon, Roger Federer faced another pretender to his throne in Novak Djokovic at the US Open.

The 21-year-old Serb made a worthy opponent in his first Grand Slam final and led by a break in all three sets, missing a total of seven points.

But Federer proved too strong in each and came through to become the first man ever to win both Wimbledon and the US Open for four years in a row.
