2006 US OPEN



6-2 4-6 7-5 6-1




The Swiss champion continues to make his claim as the greatest tennis player EVER by capturing his 3rd consecutive US Open to go along with his 3 consecutive Wimbledon titles. 

This makes 9 total grand slam titles for Roger Federer and presumably he has at least 4 more great years of tennis ahead of him.

Roddick played much better than he had in previous meetings against Federer. 

Obviously, he has been getting some good coaching from Jimmy Connors. 

Roddick tried to hit his backhand up the line, mix up his serves, and charge the net, but Federer was just too tough.

Federer displayed his amazing passing shot ability and seemed very confident throughout the match.

Federer hit 17 aces to Roddick's 7 which is pretty surprising given the speed of Roddick's serve. 

But while Federer hits with slightly less pace, he makes up for it with incredible precision. 

Watching him play is very similar to watching a master artist paint. 

You can't really comment or critique it, you just have to sit back and take it all in. 

Federer, a true genius on the court continues to display his mastery as the #1 player in the world.

"I think you have to look at the tournament as a whole and I've played some great shots all the way," said Federer.

"It's been absolutely fantastic. I'm glad it all worked out because tonight was very difficult against Andy.

I'm really happy to see him back at the top and I'm really happy to play against him."

Roddick said: "It's been a rough year and the past two weeks make it all worth while."
