In the 2009 Wimbledon Championships Men's Singles final, Roger Federer defeated Andy Roddick in the longest men's singles final (in terms of games played) in Grand Slam tournament history with 77 games, breaking the record of 71 games set at the 1927 Australian Open. The match also had the longest fifth set (16–14) in a major men's singles final, surpassing the 11–9 fifth set in the 1927 French Open final.[1] The match took 4 hours and 17 minutes to complete, and the fifth set alone lasted 95 minutes.[2] By winning his 15th Major, Roger Federer surpassed Pete Sampras's record of 14 major titles. In a rare occurrence, Roddick lost despite only having his serve broken once, in the very last game of the match.

Rafael Nadal was the defending champion, but withdrew from the tournament due to knee tendinitis.[3]
