    It was a match for the ages as Roger Federer defeated American Andy Roddick in a record Men’s Wimbledon Finals.  The final score – 5-7, 7-6, 7-6, 3-6, 16-14.  The 77 games played by the 2 competitors was a record for a 5-set match.  The 16-14 5th set score was the highest score ever in a 5th set Wimbledon match.  The 30 games played in the 5th set was also the most games ever played in a set.  Federer had 50 aces in the match – a personal record for him.  Shockingly, Federer never even broke Roddick once until that 77th game that gave him the win.  Roddick had broken Federer twice during the match. 

    Federer became the game’s greatest player ever – winning a record 15th Grand Slam title. Pete Sampras previously held the record with 14 Grand Slam Titles.  Sampras and legendary tennis players Bjorn Borg and Rod Laver were on hand to congratulate Federer at the end of the match.
