Wimbledon 2009 Gentlemen’s Singles Final – Roger Federer versus Andy Roddick

History in the making?
Will Roger Federer make history by winning the final to claim his 15th Grand Slam Singles title? Just as the Williams sisters met for the 21st time in their pro careers on American Independence Day in the Ladies Singles Final at Wimbledon, so too do Federer and Andy Roddick.

With Roger at 18 wins to Roddick’s 2 wins in their previous head-to-head matches the Swiss champion seems poised to surpass Pete Sampras’s current record of 14 Grand Slam Singles titles.

Just as Rafael Nadal beat Federer in his third Wimbledon final against him, Roddick will be battling as well as he can to emulate Nadal and make his third Wimbledon final against Federer a victorious one. It promises to be an intense match and a must-see for any avid tennis fan with so much at stake.
