- 2008: Nadal beats Federer in the greatest match of all time – by Steve Tignor (tennis.com)
At four hours and 48 minutes, the ’08 final was the longest in Wimbledon history. It snapped Federer’s streak of five titles, and led, the following month, to Nadal’s ascension to No. 1 for the first time. Yet those milestones feel incidental to the contest itself, which will stand as a monument to the game’s early-21st century golden era. As the British journalist Chris Bowers summed up, “Nadal won the match, Federer lost it, and the whole of tennis, if not the whole of sport, won through the sheer quality and drama of one of the best pieces of sporting theater tennis has ever produced.”
