Roger Federer's illustrious career continues to fascinate tennis fans and loyal supporters. For all of the accomplishments by rivals Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, Federer is still the standard tennis will use to measure past and future greatness.
This slideshow is a tribute to each of his 16 Grand Slam finals wins, highlighting the most important moment for each match.
It will also grade each Slam win by how memorable it will be to future generations. Which matches will best be remembered 20 years from now? Why?
The grades will not be determined simply by the quality of the match but will also include the quality and appeal of the opponent, milestones and transitional moments. Federer brings so much star power to each match that none of them will receive a grade below a "C."
Since this is a subjective list, readers are invited to contribute their own memories or arguments for what made each of these matches so memorable.
