Can you end it with all this incessant "tard" shite?

2001 and 2007 were the best for me, although 2008 fairly close.

fair enough Han, but I think his point is that many guys voted just for the sake of voting (especially younger Fed/Rafa fans, without really saying why/elaborating ... some of them probably haven't even seen the 2001 W final). I'm not his devil's advocate but that's just my impression

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if at least half of the current members on this site haven't even watched the 2001 final.

Constantly harping on about "tards" is...for want of a better word, retarded. The fact that some people might have voted and not explained why does not really excuse this. I mean, who gives a shit about poll results on this or any other forum/media where the public get to vote anyway?

Enough of that.

2001 - drama, great story, great tennis, Ivanisevic comeback, Rafter so likeable, great crowd as others have said.

2007 - the two greats of the decade playing close to their best tennis (Nadal almost doing it on grass, Federer just a notch down from his very best), the match genuinely up for grabs.

2008 - quality not as high as 2007 perhaps overall, and I certainly felt during the match there was only one winner, so not quite as exciting.

I can understand his lost in the USO and in the AO where he played at a good level, but, this final was embarrassing
Uhhhh, acutally Rafa played like utter crap in the 2011 US Open final, his serve deserted him and Nole was injured in the 4th set and still won 6-1

"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.

The third set was of an incredibly high standard though. Nadal fought his heart out, Djokovic was just too much at the USO.

At Wimbledon, he never even showed up. It was just a stinker of a performance. You didn't even have the feeling Djokovic had to push himself.

As for Novak's injury, well, he had a little niggle but nothing more. He was hitting and moving just fine.

Somehow, I like that 2004 final. May be because that's one match Andy played his best.

After that, his spirit was broken forever ....... :-(
