The first of their three consecutive Wimbledon finals and one month after a defeat in the French Open final in four sets, Federer avenges in four sets (but should have been in three). Nadal  was very nervous at the beginning of his first Wimbledon final, but saved a game point to avoid losing the opening seven games and led 5:3* when Federer  easily took three straight games. The Swiss improved in the tie-break from 1:3 to 6:3 before converting his third set point. In the 3rd set Federer, serving second, acted like he wanted to win another set in the tie-break to finish the championship not dropping a set, but failed losing five straight points from 2-all in the second tie-break, so he accelerated in the 4th set quickly establishing an insurmountable *5:1 lead.
Federer’s route to his 39th title:
1 Richard Gasquet 6-3, 6-2, 6-2
2 Tim Henman 6-4, 6-0, 6-2
3 Nicolas Mahut 6-3, 7-6(2), 6-4
4 Tomas Berdych 6-3, 6-3, 6-4
Q Mario Ancic 6-4, 6-4, 6-4
S Jonas Bjorkman 6-2, 6-0, 6-2
W Rafael Nadal 6-0, 7-6(5), 6-7(2), 6-3
