vs Andy Roddick

Federer is the king of Wimbledon and this truly unimaginable final will never be forgotten by those who saw it.

The longest final in Grand Slam history ended 5-7 7-6 7-6 3-6 16-14 in the Swiss' favour. It also saw him win his 15th title to break the all-time record set by Pete Sampras, who watched from the Royal Box. 

Federer showed no end of skill, determination and stamina against his big-serving opponent. The final was fitting way to officially become the most decorated player ever.

Roddick, however, has to be the most unlucky man in Wimbledon history, his previous two finals in London also saw him lose to Federer.

It was a day where the American saw his service game broken only once, in what turned out to be the decisive 77th game. As the records for this crazy tie tumbled, the last set lasted over an hour-and-a-half. 

The crowd cheered both men throughout the whole contest which lasted well over four hours. 

Federer has only won once more at Wimbledon since then, in 2012 against Andy Murray.
