Roger Federer has strengthened his claim to greatness, winning his third consecutive Wimbledon title by beating Andy Roddick 6-2, 7-6 (2), 6-4. With an impeccable performance, even by his high standards, the top-ranked Federer became the third man since 1936 to win three straight Wimbledon crowns. The other two are seven-time champion Pete Sampras and five-time winner Bjorn Borg. Federer defeated the second-seeded Roddick at Wimbledon for the third year in a row, including the past two finals, and leads the rivalry 9-1. Federer won his 21st consecutive final and improved to 5-0 in Grand Slam finals. He became the first man since Tony Trabert in 1953-55 to win his first five major finals. (AP)
