The Best Match Ever

Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer gave us 5 sets and 5 hours of as-good-as-it-gets tennis in the final roofless Wimbledon. Virtually every point was a stroke of tennis genius, each man giving his soul time and again through rain and shine. In the end, Nadal withstood all tests to win the trophy from the 5 time champion.

Nadal stuns Federer to win Wimbledon

John McEnroe, who contested the most memorable match ever at 1980 Wimbledon, his 1-6, 7- 5, 6-3, 6-7 (16), 8-6 loss to Bjorn Borg, called Rafael Nadal's 6-4, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-7 (8), 9-7 victory over five-time defending champion Roger Federer in the 2008 Wimbledon final the greatest match he's ever seen.
