The History of Roger Federer at Wimbledon

Roger Federer's history at Wimbledon includes 22 appearances at the prestigious grass-court tournament, with a record of 105 wins and 14 losses. The Swiss star secured his first victory at the All England Club on June 25, 2001, against Christophe Rochus, after two initial first-round exits in the 1999 and 2000 editions.

In that 2001 edition, Federer made an unforgettable mark by defeating the legendary Pete Sampras in the fourth round with a score of 7-6 (7), 5-7, 6-4, 6-7 (2), 7-5, in a three-hour and 41-minute battle.

Wimbledon 2003

‍In 2003, Federer was ranked fifth in the ATP rankings and defeated Australian Mark Philippoussis in the final, 7-6 (5), 6-2, 7-6 (3). It was his first time lifting the trophy at the All England Club, starting a streak of 41 consecutive victories at the grass-court Grand Slam.

Wimbledon 2004

This Grand Slam confirmed that Federer would be a player who would mark the history of tennis. That year, the Swiss reached the number 1 ranking and, in addition to Wimbledon, won the Australian Open and the US Open. Federer defeated Andy Roddick 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 (3), 6-4 in the English major's final.

Wimbledon 2005

Wimbledon 2006

Federer's career can be illustrated through his historic and recurring duels with another tennis star: Rafael Nadal. In this edition, the Swiss and the Spaniard met in the final on Centre Court, where Roger lifted the cup for the fourth consecutive time after a four-set victory.

Wimbledon 2007

The second of three consecutive finals between Federer and Nadal resulted in another predictable outcome for the tennis world. The Swiss won his fifth consecutive Wimbledon by defeating the Spaniard 7-6 (7), 4-6, 7-6 (3), 2-6, 6-2. Federer's magnificent streak ended in the following edition when Nadal finally overcame him in the final.

Wimbledon 2009

Winning six out of seven Wimbledons in a row is an achievement Federer can boast. This time, the victim was another familiar opponent, Andy Roddick. The Swiss won in a long battle, 5-7, 7-6 (6), 7-6 (5), 3-6, 16-14, in what was his seventh consecutive final at the All England Club.

Federer's return to glory at Wimbledon came against local favorite Andy Murray. In the final, Murray won the first set, but Federer then took the next three sets to claim the trophy once again.
