Roger Federer v Andy Roddick

This was the hat-trick year for Federer, as he made it to three back-to-back Wimbledon finals and successfully defended the title once again.

Pitted against arch-rival Andy Roddick once again, it was time for Federer to establish himself as the King of Grass. Federer saw off Roddick in a comfortable 6-2, 7-6(2), 6-4 match to claim his fifth Grand Slam and third Wimbledon title.

#6 US Open 2005

Roger Federer v Andre Agassi

The 2005 Flushing Meadows encounter with the legendary Andre Agassi proved to be a monumental one. With eight Grand Slam titles to his name and still going strong at 35 years of age, Agassi came into the final touted as the a strong contender.

But everybody was vaguely aware of the genius of a certain 24-year-old Swiss, who ended up essaying a spectacular 6-3, 2-6, 7-6, 6-1 win. The US Open final turned out to be the last Major final for the American.

#7 Australian Open 2006

2006 turned out to be a year of dreams for the Swiss legend. Federer reached the final of all 4 Grand Slams that year, a feat last accomplished by Australian legend Rod Laver in 1969. Moreover, Federer managed to pull off a spectacular 92-5 match win-loss record in the season to make it one of the greatest in tennis history.

At the beginning of the year he was faced with Marcos Baghdatis in the final of the Australian Open, who he overcame in a 5-7, 7-5, 6-0, 6-2 battle.

#8 Wimbledon 2006

Roger Federer v Rafael Nadal

2006 was also a memorable year because this was the first time Rafael Nadal had emerged as a force to reckon with even outside clay. Having defeated Federer in their first finale clash at the French Open the same year, the King of Clay set up a date with the King of Grass a month and a half later.

What began from then and still persists now, was a rivalry to rival any that any sport had ever seen. A tight match between the right-handed Federer and the left-handed Nadal ended with Federer triumphing in 6-0, 7-6(5), 6-7(2), 6-3, for the fourth time in a row at Big W.
