It was the longest men's Grand Slam final in history with 77 games played. It was also the longest fifth set in a men's Grand Slam final in history (30 games). Federer server a career high of 50 aces in the match.
Although Federer was my favourite to win it, you have to feel sorry for Roddick; he has never won at Wimbledon but has reached the final three times, losing to Federer every time.
Federer was born in Switzerland and speaks German, French and English fluently. His father is Swiss and his mother is... South African! He's married to Mirka, a former tennis player from Slovakia who was eight months pregnant at courtside, while watching him play in the final. Luckily her water didn't break!
