| The 2009 Wimbledon Championship final exhibited four hours and 16 minutes of pure tennis bliss. Roger Federer faced Andy Roddick with a lot on the line; his sixth Wimbledon crown, a number one ranking, and the chance to be the greatest men's champion of all time with a open era record of 15 Grand Slams. The one thing standing in his was a very determined and hard hitting, Roddick. Without a final set tiebreaker, the 16-14 fifth set score was one for the record books. The final was wrought with emotion from beginning to end as Federer clinched the Championships with a match score line of 5-7 7-6 (8-6) 7-6 (7-5) 3-6 16-14.
