Roger Federer has won plenty of major championships in his career. One of the greatest players in tennis history currently holds 17 of the sport's most coveted prizes — most recently Wimbledon in 2012. Sit back, relax and take a look at his lengthy résumé of Grand Slam triumphs.
1. 2003 Wimbledon -- A famous first
Federer's first Grand Slam triumph came at the expense of Mark Philippoussis. The No. 4 seed going into the tournament, Federer lost only one set on the way to the championship. It was the first time a Swiss man had ever won a Grand Slam title ... but it certainly would not be the last.
2. 2004 Australian Open -- Triumph Down Under
The tournament that started his record run in the No. 1 spot in the rankings, Federer beat Lleyton Hewitt, David Nalbandian, and Juan Carlos Ferrero in consecutive rounds before securing the title with a straight-sets win over an unseeded Marat Safin in the final.
3. 2004 Wimbledon -- Back-to-back in England
After a disappointing third-round exit at the French Open the same year, Federer roared back to win his second straight title at the All England Club and third overall Grand Slam. He lost the first set of the final to No. 2 seed Andy Roddick before bouncing back for a four-set win.
4. 2004 U.S. Open -- American dream
His first win at America's Grand Slam, Federer had to beat three top-six players in the last three rounds to achieve it. He outlasted Andre Agassi in a five-set thriller in the quarterfinals, beat Tim Henman in the semis and routed Lleyton Hewitt -- who is 0-8 against Federer in Grand Slams -- to win the title.
5. 2005 Wimbledon -- Triple the fun
Federer made it three in a row in London and five overall with an emphatic romp through the tournament, again only dropping one set along the way. He faced Andy Roddick in the final for the second straight year but gave the American no room to get excited, winning easily in straight sets.
6. 2005 U.S. Open -- Legends collide
His second straight conquest in Flushing Meadows, Federer had a typically easy time yet again. He faced Andre Agassi in the championship match -- the last Grand Slam final appearance for the American legend. After getting trounced in the second set, Federer won the next two and the match for his sixth Slam title.

7. 2006 Australian Open -- Back on top in Melbourne
It's a rare thing to push Federer to five sets at a Grand Slam, but Tommy Haas gave the future champion all he could handle in the fourth round. Federer shook off the German challenger and went on to beat fresh face Marcos Baghdatis for the championship, his second in three years at Melbourne Park and seventh overall Slam.
8. 2006 Wimbledon -- Nadal era begins
A month after losing to Rafael Nadal in his first French Open final appearance, Federer got back at the Spaniard with a four-set victory for his fourth straight triumph at Wimbledon and eighth overall major title. Nadal was the only player to take a set from Federer in the tournament, an omen of the great rivalry to come.

9. 2006 U.S. Open -- Thorn in Roddick's side
For the third time, Federer beat Andy Roddick for a Grand Slam title. The ninth-seeded American made a somewhat surprising run to the final, but once again wilted under the pressure of Federer's precision. It was Federer's ninth Slam crown, surpassing the eight won by Andre Agassi, who retired after his third-round loss in this same event.
10. 2007 Australian Open -- Peak of greatness
Federer's 10th Grand Slam title left no doubt. He tore through the field in Melbourne without losing a set -- the first man to win any Slam in that fashion since Bjorn Borg at the 1980 French Open -- and dispatched first-time Grand Slam finalist Fernando Gonzalez in the final.
11. 2007 Wimbledon -- Five in a row
Federer tied another Bjorn Borg record in London by winning his fifth straight Wimbledon title. In the final, he once again faced Rafael Nadal -- who had once again beaten him in the French Open final a month before -- and won in five sets for his 11th career Grand Slam title.
12. 2007 U.S. Open -- Supreme dominance ends
Another victory in New York gave Roger Federer his 12th Grand Slam title, made him the winner of each of the last eight non-French majors and was the last of his record 11 straight Slam final appearances. His win over up-and-coming Novak Djokovic would be his last victory in a Slam final for a year.
13. 2008 U.S. Open -- Not done yet
A blowout loss to Rafael Nadal at the French Open and a gut-wrenching loss to him at Wimbledon in 2008 left some wondering when and if Federer would return to Grand Slam glory. The second-seeded Federer got title No. 13 in Flushing Meadows, beating Andy Murray for his fifth straight conquest there.
14. 2009 French Open -- Career Slam complete
Finally! After four straight years of near misses at Roland Garros, Federer finished off his Career Slam and equaled Pete Sampras' mark of 14 overall Grand Slam titles with a win at the French Open. He beat Robin Soderling -- who ousted four-time defending champion Nadal in the fourth round -- in straight sets in the final.
15. 2009 Wimbledon -- History in the making
Not many people gave Andy Roddick a chance in this final, but the American pushed Federer to the limit in a five-set thriller. Federer won 16-14 in the final frame, breaking Roddick's serve for the first time in the very last game. The win gave the Swiss his record-breaking 15th Grand Slam title.
16. 2010 Australian Open -- Beat goes on
Once again, Andy Murray was the foil. Federer won two routine sets, then fought off the Scot in a 13-11 tiebreaker in the third to prove he wasn't yet done winning majors. The Grand Slam crown was Federer's fourth down under in five career finals.

17. 2012 Wimbledon -- Return to glory
After nearly 30 months without a Grand Slam title, Federer once again silenced the doubts -- and once again beat Murray to do it. He topped the home-nation favorite in the final to clinch his seventh Wimbledon title, despite the dropping the first set, and return to the world No. 1 ranking. Murray was trying to become the first British man to win the title since Fred Perry in 1936 -- a feat he achieved the following year.
