It was a beautiful match. Safin beat Federer when the latter was still at his peak and playing perfect tennis. It was probably the last time we saw Safin play that focused and well.

It has a good claim to being the best match of the decade, though inevitably due to the Safin factor it is going to be overrated somewhat among tennis fans

Not the greatest, but I love the ending. Roger tripping, and groveling on the court! How badly Roger wanted to win that match.

Unlike the hyped 2008 Wimbledon final, awesome match. There's hardly an off season when I don't watch it once again. Points like that out of this world BH around 7:55 abounded on both sides throughout the match.



The first point of the video is not too shabby either

Day off? Perhaps I should go search for those memorable CC dropshots since the clip posted doesn't do it for you.

One of the best matches of this decade, way better than the W2008 final

Let me guess, you just prefer when he's on winning side, preferably the one-sided ones. He played great, as did Safin, tard.
