Roger Federer vs Andre Agassi Full Match | US Open 2004 Quarterfinal

  • Published on:  5/10/2020
  • The 2004 quarterfinal between Roger Federer and Andre Agassi is a match remembered as much for the extraordinary weather conditions as the tennis itself. Played over two days due to rainstorms, the match resumed for its second day in extreme, blustery conditions that defined the iconic encounter.

    The Swiss led by two sets to one when rain halted play on a Wednesday night, and Agassi initially handled the daytime wind best as he sent the match to a fifth set when play resumed on Thursday.

    Federer was embarking on the first leg of his five-year run as US Open champion, while Agassi was in the twilight of his career, just two New York appearances to follow before his 2006 retirement. They would meet again in the 2005 final, with Federer winning in four sets.

    The 2004 US Open was also notable for being the last US Open played on green courts, before the well-received switch to blue ahead of the 2005 event.
