Main article: Roger Federer

Roger Federer made two Grand Slam finals in 2005, winning both at Wimbledon over Andy Roddick, 6–2, 7–6(2), 6–4, and then defeating Andre Agassi in his last Grand Slam final at the US Open, 6–3, 2–6, 7–6(1), 6–1. However, Federer failed to make the final at the other two Majors, losing in the semifinals of the Australian Open to Marat Safin and the French Open to Rafael Nadal. However, Federer won four ATP Masters Series 1000 at Indian Wells, Miami, and Cincinnati on hard courts and one lone clay court title at Hamburg. Furthermore, Federer won two ATP 500 series events at Rotterdam and Dubai. Federer lost the Year-End Championships to David Nalbandian in the final.

Year summary[edit]

Federer at the 2005 US Open tournament.

At the start of the year, Federer hired former Australian player Tony Roche to coach him on a limited basis.[1] He reached the Australian Open semifinals, before falling to eventual winner Marat Safin, 7–5, 4–6, 7–5, 6–7(6), 7–9.[2] He rebounded to win the year's first two ATP Masters Series titles: Indian Wells defeating Lleyton Hewitt of Australia in straight sets, and Key Biscayne, defeating Nadal in five sets, 2–6, 6–7(4), 7–6(5), 6–3, 6–1, after being down two sets to love, and two points from defeat. He won his third Hamburg clay-court title in May by defeating Richard Gasquet, to whom he had earlier lost in the quarterfinals at Monte Carlo. He then entered the French Open as one of the favorites, but lost a four set semifinal to fourth seed and eventual winner Nadal.

Federer successfully defended his Wimbledon title, winning for the third consecutive year by defeating Roddick in a rematch of the previous year's final, this time winning in straight sets. Federer also defeated Roddick in the final of the Cincinnati Masters to take his fourth Masters Series title of the year (and sweep all the American Masters events) and became the first player to win four Masters Series titles in one season.[3] He then dropped only two sets en route to his second consecutive US Open title, defeating Andre Agassi in four sets in the final. Federer became the first man in the open era to win Wimbledon and the US Open back-to-back in consecutive years (2004 and 2005). Federer however, failed to defend his year-end Masters Cup title, losing to David Nalbandian of Argentina in an almost four-and-a-half hour match in five sets.[4] Had he won the match, Federer would have tied John McEnroe's 1984 record for the highest yearly winning percentage in the open era (82–3), as well as winning a streak of 25 consecutive finals.

2005 also saw the first meeting between Federer and future rival Andy Murray, in the Bangkok final. Federer was victorious, 6–3, 7–5.[5]
