#10 Roger Federer Vs Rafael Nadal - 2007
As we all know, this one is the greatest rivalry in the world of tennis and there is no denying that. The 2007 Wimbledon Championships was weather ravaged and the schedule had to be sqeezed and sorted in order to end the matches in time. Even the hectic schedule, the two champions, Federer and Nadal made it to the finals where Federer got the best of the Spaniard in this epic five-setter. This was also one of the most crushing defeats of Nadal’s career apart from the 2012 Australian Open loss against Djokovic.
On the other hand, this Wimbledon title helped Federer to equal Bjorn Borg’s record of winning 5 consecutive Wimbledon titles.
