2005 Miami Masters, Final

Federer wins 2-6, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (5), 6-3, 6-1

Nadal was two points from replicating his '04 win before Federer summoned his best tennis when it mattered most, prevailing in a titanic struggle. Federer's victory, predicated as much on mettle as on shot-making, solidified this as the sport's next great rivalry.

Series tied 1-1.
