20 Golden moments from Roger Federer’s career

10. Federer’s maiden French open title

As stated by Federer himself, his French Open title was won right there when he defeated Tommyy Haas in the marathon match, when he was a match point down in the third and he hit an inside out forehand that painted the line. He won the match later by 6-7(4), 5-7, 6-4, 6-0, 6-2 & knew it is going to be his year.

9. Defeating Del Potro

Swiss star managed to defeat tall Argentine in five sets in the semi finals of the 2009 French open 3–6, 7–6(2), 2–6, 6–1, 6–4. This turned out to be the one of best comebacks in Federer’s career.

8. Wimbledon 2007

Rafael Nadal looked in great form coming to the finals, he stretched the match into 5 sets & this was the first time in 6 long years that Federer was taken to five sets in Wimbledon.

However, Federer managed to turned the match around as his forehand clicked at the right time & his victory over Nadal in his own backyard is considered to be one of the best in his career.

7. The Rebirth

Losing the Wimbledon’s 2008 finals gave Federer a slight setback as he cried his heart out when he lost in the finals of the Australian open in 2009.

Novak Djokovic & Nadal started to dominate the season but the champ Swiss maestro was back to his form in Madrid where he issued a statement by defeating Rafael Nadal in the Madrid finals in 2009. Later on, he won the French Open too making it a wonderful year for his fans.

6. Breaking Novak Djokovic’s Winning Streak

Djokovic looked unstoppable and close to equal McEnroe’s record of 42 consecutive wins to start a season. However, Federer had some other plans for the Serbian. Federer defeated Novak in four sets of high quality tennis to reach the semis of the French open & won the title too later.

5. Breaking Pete Sampras’s Record

Federer shattered the Pete Sampras’s record of the highest total of Grand Slam titles accumulated in the marathon final between between Roger Federer and Andy Roddick. This match holds the record for the longest match in a grand slam finals, in terms of games played.

Andy was quite shattered with the match as according to him, he played the best tennis of his career but still came second.

4. Winning 2017 Australian open

After losing out in Wimbledon 2016, Federer decided to take rest to focus on his knee injury. Nobody knew, how he would comeback, but the kind of tennis he played in Australia was just phenomenal.

1. Oldest World Number 1 in ATP History

At 36 years and 195 days, he overtook Andre Agassi as the oldest male World Number 1 and also Serena Williams as the oldest tennis player who reached World Number 1.  Federer defeated Robin Haase in the semifinals of the Rotterdam Open to become the new no.1 ousting Rafael Nadal.
