Roger Federer's Grand Slam titles

Roger Federer's straight-sets win over Robin Soderling in the French Open final draws him level with Pete Sampras on 14 grand slam titles and makes him the sixth man to win all four majors.

1 Wimbledon 2003 Federer, 21, produces a near-faultless display to beat Mark Philippoussis 7-6 (7-5), 6-2, 7-6 (7-3). This was the first time he had made it past the quarter-finals at a grand slam tournament.

2 Australian Open 2004 Federer celebrates becoming world No1 by outclassing Marat Safin 7-6 (7-3), 6-4, 6-2 in what proves a one-sided final.

3 Wimbledon 2004 For the second year in succession Federer is brought to tears after winning Wimbledon, digging deep to come from behind and beat Andy Roddick 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 (7-3), 6-4 in a stuttering display.

4 US Open 2004 Federer becomes the first man in history to win his first four grand slam finals and the first man in 16 years to claim three majors in one year - with a 6-0, 7-6 (7-3), 6-0 win over Lleyton Hewitt.

5 Wimbledon 2005 Federer completes a hat-trick of titles at SW19 with a devastating display to defeat Andy Roddick 6-2, 7-6 (7-2), 6-4, labelling his performance "flawless" and the best in his life.

6 US Open 2005 Federer spoils 35-year-old Andre Agassi's hopes of ending his career with victory in front of his home crowd, defending his title with a 6-3, 2-6 7-6 (7-1), 6-1 win.

7 Australian Open 2006 Federer recovers from a poor start to beat Marcos Baghdatis 5-7, 7-5, 6-0, 6-2 for his second title in Melbourne.

8 Wimbledon 2006 Federer takes his winning streak on grass to 48 matches by beating arch rival Rafael Nadal 6-0, 7-6 (7-5), 6-7 (2-7), 6-3 for a fourth Wimbledon crown.

9 US Open 2006 Federer becomes the first man in the Open era to win three successive titles at Wimbledon and New York in the same years by beating Andy Roddick 6-2, 4-6, 7-5, 6-1, moving past Agassi and Fred Perry in the list of major title winners.

10 Australian Open 2007 Federer becomes the first man since 1980 to win a grand slam title without dropping a set as he sees off Fernando González 7-6 (7-2), 6-4, 6-4 for a third title in Melbourne.

11 Wimbledon 2007 Federer emulates Bjorn Borg by winning a fifth straight title here, beating Nadal for the second year in succession in an epic five-setter 7-6 (9-7), 4-6, 7-6 (7-3), 2-6, 6-2. It lasted close to four hours.

12 US Open 2007 Federer was given a tough test by Novak Djokovic but won 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-2), 6-4, despite trailing by a break in each set. It was his fourth consecutive title in New York.

13 US Open 2008 Federer recovers from his Roland Garros and Wimbledon heartbreak months earlier to win a fifth straight title at Flushing Meadows, beating Britain's Andy Murray 6-2, 7-5, 6-2 in the final as second seed.

14. French Open 2009 Federer finally prevails at Roland Garros by beating the surprise finalist Robin Soderling 6-1, 7-6 (7-1), 6-4. The Swiss had lost the three previous finals to Nadal.
