    Roger Federer earned his sixth Wimbledon title.

    WIMBLEDON, England — Roger Federer has won his record-breaking 15th Grand Slam title and sixth Wimbledon championship by beating Andy Roddick 5-7, 7-6 (6), 7-6 (5), 3-6, 16-14.

    Federer finished with 50 aces Sunday and converted his only break of the match in the final game.

    Federer's 15 major titles eclipses the mark he shared with Pete Sampras, who won his 14th Grand Slam trophy in his last match at the 2002 U.S. Open.
