In a repeat of the 2004 and 2005 finals, Roger Federer defeated Andy Roddick in the final, 5–7, 7–6(8–6), 7–6(7–5), 3–6, 16–14 to win the Gentlemen's Singles tennis title at the 2009 Wimbledon Championships for the sixth time.[2] It became 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.[3] The match took 4 hours and 17 minutes to complete, and the fifth set alone lasted 95 minutes.[4] By winning his 15th major, Roger Federer surpassed Pete Sampras' record of 14 major titles. This was Federer's 11th Grass Court Title, surpassing the previous record held by Sampras (10). In a rare occurrence, Roddick lost despite only having his serve broken once, in the very last game of the match. By winning the title, Federer regained the ATP no. 1 singles ranking from Nadal for the first time since August 2008.

Roddick's run to the final would be the last time where an American male player reached the semifinals of a Grand Slam until Sam Querrey reached the semifinals of the 2017 Wimbledon Championships eight years later.
