Roger Roger – Federer’s Best Wimbledon Wins

It will hardly come as a surprise that Roger Federer is one of the favourites for this year’s Wimbledon crown, given he holds the record for the most Wimbledon titles with eight. He is without a doubt the greatest player to have graced the grass court, but what are his best wins in SW19?

The Swiss Maestro is second favourite in Wimbledon 2019 betting, having been priced at 3/1, not too far behind the favourite Novak Djokovic (6/4). Despite being 37 years old, Federer has remained one of the best players in the game and with the grass court being his specialism, you shouldn’t doubt the potential to make it nine Wimbledon titles.

Let’s take a look back at his best moments from the All England Tennis Club.

Federer vs Pete Sampras 2001

A 19-year-old Roger Federer made his first appearance on Centre Court at Wimbledon in 2001, when he took on legendary American tennis star Pete Sampras. Federer was proving a tough test for the defending champion, with the first set being won by the Swiss youngster via a tie-break.

In what was a five-set thriller, Federer managed to prove that youth can indeed trump experience. The back-and-forth contest was without down one of the best game ever seen at Wimbledon, and although Federer would eventually lose out to Great Britain’s Tim Henman, it would prove to be invaluable experience for the future.

The first of many

2003 was the year that Federer finally began his journey to Wimbledon folklore with the first of his eight Wimbledon titles. He had failed to even get past the first round the previous year, which makes his victory in 2003 all the sweeter.

In the seven games Federer played en route to his first Wimbledon title, he only dropped one set – the third set in the third round against American Mardy Fish. His dominant straight-set victory over Andy Roddick in the semi-final was a sight to behold, before defeating Australian Mark Philippoussis in the final, again in straight sets.

Five in a row

It’s rare that players are able to win the Wimbledon title five times in their career, let alone five times in a row. But that’s exactly what Federer achieved from 2003 to 2007. After defeating Philippoussis in 2003, he came up against Andy Roddick in the 2004 final, where Roddick looked more impressive than his performance in the 2003 semi-final.

The 2005 final saw Roddick once again try to unseat Federer as the champion, but again came up short, losing in straight sets. With victory over Roddick in the final and Lleyton Hewitt in the semi-final, Federer had beaten both the world numbers two and three in straight sets, a sign of his dominance on grass.

2006 was the beginning of a fantastic rivalry with Rafael Nadal, as his Spanish opponent reached the final, but lost 6-0, 7-6, 6-7, 6-3, handing Federer his fourth Wimbledon title in a row.

A year later and the two would meet in the final again, but this time it was a much closer affair, and Nadal became one of only a handful of players to take Federer to five sets on the grass court. Ultimately though, Federer was able to make history, claiming a 7-6, 4-6, 7-6, 2-6, 6-2 victory over his rival.

Return of the King

Back in 2017, Roger Federer hadn’t won the Wimbledon title in five years, and many in the media were suggesting that perhaps it was game over for Federer. He may have been world number three at the time, but age looked to be catching up with him.

But Federer wasn’t prepared to call it a day yet. Instead, the Swiss Maestro decided that he wouldn’t even entertain the thought of his opponents having a chance and duly beat all seven opponents in straight sets. He may have been 35, but he wasn’t letting his opponents, young or old, get the better of him.

Milos Raonic, Tomáš Berdych and Marin Čilić were all in the top 12 in the world, so it is very surprising that none of them could win a set against Federer. This tournament was the moment he proved that for Federer at least, age didn’t matter.
