Federer entered the top 100 ranking for the first time in 1999 and started at the 1999 Marseille Open defeating the reigning champion of the 1998 French Open, Spaniard Carlos Moyá.

In 2003, Federer won his first Grand Slam singles title at Wimbledon, beating popular Andy Roddick in the semifinals and Mark Philippoussis in the final. He had a chance to take over the #1 ranking for the first time from Andre Agassi if he made it to the Montreal final. However, he fell in the semifinals to Roddick, in a final set tiebreaker leaving him a paralyzing 120 points behind Agassi. This, coupled with early losses to David Nalbandian at Cincinnati and the US Open, denied Federer the chance to become #1 for the duration of the season.

At the Olympic Games, Federer and Stan Wawrinka won the gold medal in doubles. However, Federer could only reach the quarterfinals in the singles draw. He ended the year as world #2.
The 2009 season was possibly the most historically relevant of Federer’s career as he completed a career Grand Slam by winning his first French Open title and won a men’s record fifteenth Grand Slam singles title at Wimbledon. The Wimbledon final was also historic for being the longest Grand Slam final in terms of games played with Federer prevailing 16–14 in the fifth set. Federer finished the season as the year end World No.1 for the fifth time in his career.
