Roger Federer,Wimbledon Open winners and runner-ups male, From 2000-2010

Wimbledon the name speaks itself is undoubtedly the ultimate test of the top tennis players in the tennis circuit. The era of 2000-2010 shows the dominance of one of the best tennis players ever and that is of Roger Federer from Basel, Switzerland. He has the prestige of being the most famous tennis player in history. He also held the world ranking No. 1 seat for a long period, followed by Spanish tennis player giant Rafael Nadal, currently No. 2 from Spain.

Roger Federer first made his mark at Wimbledon 2001 by defeating Pete Sampras in an epic five setter marathon. He made the crowd sit up and forced them to notice his absolute skills. Defeating Sampras was quite an achievement itself and this achievement later multiplied successively. This was the only encounter between Federer and Sampras as Sampras retired later. Federer did lose to Mario Ancic in the following year but he won his first Wimbledon title in 2003 where he defeated Mark Philippoussis to win the Grand Slam title. He dropped only one set in this match and since then, he has been unstoppable. Like Sampras, Federer also felt comfortable at Wimbledon and claimed 6 Wimbledon titles, only one less than Sampras. His exquisite one handed backhand perhaps is the most aesthetic shot in tennis and would be missed after his retirement.

Wimbledon has a history of challenging competitions and one of the prime examples is the era of 1989-1980, when the title went into the hands of United States, Sweden and Germany. This era ended the victorious journey of Bjorn Borg, a Swedish Tennis Player who was highly ranked amongst the professional tennis players’ names in history. Other top names include John McEnroe and Boris Becker who won the title 3 times in this era. Boris Becker became the youngest man ever to have won Wimbledon championship in 1985. He was just 15 years old when he raised the coveted silver trophy on the centre court. Boris Becker is also the first German ever to have won the title, along with being the first unseeded player to do so. Boris took three hours and 18 minutes to defeat South African Born American Kevin Curren to win the Wimbledon Championship. Boris won the Wimbledon championship again in the following year and then for the third time in 1989. His attacking style of tennis based on massive and dramatic serves and diving volleys defined the tennis game for men for many years. McEnroe not only won 3 Wimbledon titles but he also brought style and charisma to centre court. He was often booed upon for his extreme and inexcusable behavior but he was loved for his delicacy and tough mind which he showed in his game.
