Wimbledon Open Winners and Runner-Ups (Male)-From 2010-2000

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.
