2009 and it's not even close, despite a complete breakdown by Fed in that 5th set. The other four sets outdid the entirety of the 2012 final in pure quality of tennis - by far.
sorry but this post shows what a complete unnatural twisting is taking place, that looks to be coming from a blind player worship.
"pure quality of tennis" but despite a "complete breakdown by fed in the 5th set".
firstly, it looks as if nadal had nothing to do with the outcome - because the other player broke down, thereby implying that the "pure quality" lays ONLY on the fed. would've been a clumsy joke this, had it not been serious.
secondly, this post contains the notion that "quality" lays exclusively on tennis geometry (which of course it does partly), and that it has nothing to do with what in truth it has so much to do, and which is the actual quality of tennis: matchup, mentality, fight, clutch, etc...
as if the purpose of tennis as a sport is solely to provide us with pleasurable viewing experience, having NOTHING to do with the aim of the game (to win), and which in the end is the reason the game takes place.
