Roger Federer’s grand slam victories

The Swiss maestro just keeps on winning.

Roger Federer’s grand slam victories

Roger Federer landed his 20th grand slam title when he beat Marin Cilic in five sets in the final of the Australian Open on Sunday.

The Swiss improved his all-time record of men’s singles slams, and now has four more than his great rival Rafael Nadal.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at the breakdown of Federer’s triumphs.

Roger Federer’s grand slam victories.

Australian Open – six titles (2004, 2006, 2007, 2010, 2017, 2018)

By reaching his seventh final at Melbourne Park, Federer set a new Open era record at the tournament, and his triumph saw him equal Novak Djokovic and Roy Emerson’s six titles. He won his second slam title in Melbourne in 2004 with victory over Marat Safin, while last year’s unexpected triumph was arguably the greatest of his career. His only final defeat came against Nadal in 2009, and he staved off Cilic’s threat with a clinical final set on Sunday.

French Open – one title (2009)

Another of Federer’s favourite titles came nine years ago when he finally lifted the Coupe des Mousquetaires at Roland Garros. It was Federer’s fourth consecutive final and he had lost the previous three to Nadal. Robin Soderling stunned Nadal in the fourth round in 2009 and Federer defeated the Swede in the final.

Wimbledon – eight titles (2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2012, 2017)

When he finally retires, Wimbledon will be the grand slam most synonymous with Federer. He won his first title in 2003 against Mark Philippoussis and did not lose a match at SW17 until the extraordinary final against Nadal in 2008. After defeating Andy Roddick in a marathon in 2009 and Andy Murray in 2012, victory over Cilic last summer made Federer the first man ever to win eight titles.

US Open – five titles (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008)

It is nearly a decade since Federer won the last of his five successive titles in New York with victory over Murray in 2008. He had previously beaten Lleyton Hewitt, Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick and Novak Djokovic in his finals. Federer also made the final at Flushing Meadows in 2009 and 2015, losing to Juan Martin del Potro and Djokovic, respectively.
