He benifttied last year from Nadal being knocked out early but he stiill had to do the business and many consider it to be his greatest Grand slam victory.

2010 Form

Federer has been in typical Federer form this year, he started off the year at the Australian Open and duly walked off with yet anothe Grand Slam to his name. He had a close final with Andy Murray but in the end proved too good as always, he will head to Roland Garros full of confidence as always of doing well. He has had a decent season on clay so far with his best performance being a final appearance in MAdrid where he lost out to Rafa Nadal, who else.

2009 Form

The year started off reasoably well for Federer, he reached yet another final of the Australian Open, but once again he found Nadal too good in what was another classic final between the two men. Federer was in tears at the end of the five set thriller, where it seemed to some that he finally acknowledged that getting to record equalling 14 Grand Slam titles was going to be a tough ask, particularly now that Nadal can beat him on all surfaces.

His form waned after that and he has suffered defeats at the first four ATP Masters events played so far this year, until finally getting a much needed win in the Madrid Masters, where he played extremely well to beat an out of touch Nadal in a straight sets victory. Until this win he had not even reached the final of any. Murray beat him in Indian Wells, Djokovic beat him in Miami, his polish compatriot, Stanislaw Wawrinka beat him in Monte Carlo and Djokovic beat him for the first time on clay in Rome. He went on to win the 2009 French Open and backed that up with yet another win at Wimbeldon. He very nearly picked up the US Open at Flushing Meadow but did lose out to Juan Martin Del Potro in five tough sets.
