2005 US OPEN
ROGER FEDERER v ANDRE AGASSI
6-3, 2-6, 7-6, 6-1
Defending champion Roger Federer dashed American hopes of a fairytale victory for Andre Agassi with a four-set victory in Sunday's US Open final.
The world number one claimed the sixth Grand Slam title of his career.
Federer had looked in serious trouble at a break down in the third but hit back immediately.
And the Swiss star found his best form in the tie-break before sweeping through the fourth set to victory.
Agassi gameplan was to be aggressive and take the offensive before Federer. Andre was hitting the ball hard and flat which was causing Federer a fair amount of trouble, but eventually the high risk tennis started hitting less winners and started producing some errors. It didn't help Agassi that when Federer needed to turn up his game, he seemed to change his service motion and all of a sudden he started hitting 125mph aces in the 4th set for a total of 19 for the match.
