Re: Poll: What was the best Wimbledon final of the naughtys?

People voting for the 2008 final are utter :retard:.

Fedmug played like complete shit in that one. He would have never lost a set on grass from being a break up (2nd set) if he had been playing somewhat decent. He should have won that set and the match in 4 sets.

Schweni

Lahm

Kroos :fuck you:

I still gave the edge to the 2001 final because of all the emotions but the 2008 final is right there too.

2008 was a great final, no matter what the naysayers think, but 2001 edges it for me... Seeing Goran finally win Wimbledon was a great and deserved moment for him and tennis fans. Tennis won that day.

Yeah, Nadal basically bagled him on paper to win that second set

Then again, he was somewhat lucky to win 07 final, so maybe it evens it out.

"I did not play my best tennis, no? And..that is what enable him to win..to win this match no? "

- Rafael Nadal, ever so "humble", - press conference after shock 4 set loss to Robeen Soderling @ 2009 French Open 4th round.

2001 and 2009.

2008 is one of the most over-rated matches ever.

that match played right into the pundit's narrative of 'the death of the king' moment, so I'm not surprised at how much its hyped up

if you ask me, quality-wise AO2009 or USO2009 were better (basically any other 5 setter with federer on the losing side is better than wimbly 2008)

Re: Poll: What was the best Wimbledon final of the naughtys?

2001 for me. What Ivanisevic managed to do was out of this world (ranked 125, got a WC to enter the MD ... def. Moya, Roddick, Safin, Henman) . I watched that match so many times. so much drama. If Goran hadn't been such a nutcase he could've had at least 2/3 more W titles in his pocket. I felt bad for Rafter after all but Goran finally made it.

Re: Poll: What was the best Wimbledon final of the naughtys?

the only difference between wimbledon 2007 and wimbledon 2008 was both players played like shit in 2008

both played their peak levels in 2007

nadal choked away a straight set win in 2008

federer played at 10% for the first 2 sets in 2008- and 40% for the rest of the match

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Bullshit. I'm sure you weren't saying that when Roddick was up a break in the third and looking like the better player headed into the rain delay.

Their H2H had not yet become so wildly lopsided, and Federer's dominance was only just underway, so belief hardly seemed an issue at the time. Besides, Federer himself has admitted multiple times that he was fortunate to have had a break.


On another note, I agree with those who say that the 2007 final was superior to 2008 in terms of quality. People vastly overrate the '08 meeting because of the script, but the actual tennis was all over the place compared to its precedent.

yeah I agree, the duck ran federer very close in 2004, back then that was the real andy roddick with an aggressive serve AND forehand, not the psuedo-pusher he later became

Re: Poll: What was the best Wimbledon final of the naughtys?

2009. Was a fun match.

That backhand volley of Randy Odd Dick must still be a painful memory

The Penultimate Enemy to all Injustice


Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.
