The 2009 men's tournament is considered to be one of the best Grand Slam tournaments in open era history.[1] It is remembered for containing many of the best matches of the 2009 year,[2] including the Nadal versus Verdasco semi final (lasting 5 hours and 14 minutes[3]) and the Nadal versus Federer final.[2] It is noteworthy for being the first hard court Grand Slam in which Nadal made the final or won.[4]

Rafael Nadal won in the final, 7–5, 3–6, 7–6(7–3), 3–6, 6–2, against Roger Federer and became the first Spanish singles player to win the tournament.[5][6]
