Re: Most memorable sports moments ever!!!

Ah, too many to choose from.
From the top of my head, sorry for being chauvinistic:

Schalken defeating Kuerten and Gonzalez in 5 setters at 2002 US Open.
Federer winning Roland Garros
Man Utd beating Bayern Munchen in Champions league final 1999
Dennis Bergkamps goal against Argentina WC 1998
Bulls going 72-10
Rik Smits distant buzzer beater against the Knicks in 1995
Any world title by Erben Wennemars
Sven Kramers world record 5000 m speed skating
Ajax winning the 1994 Champions League (esp 5-2 win against Bayern Munchen. Football 15 years ahead of its time).

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Not really a moment but the 555 matches unbeaten streak is amazing.

Re: Most memorable sports moments ever!!!

A moment is meant to be brief, isn't it?


So:

The start of Merckx's successful attempt at the Hour record (giving him the 10km and the 20km records at the same time): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-U0gWRhIh4
Merckx's attack at Paris-Roubaix 1975 countered by De Vlaeminck: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwmm97uUvqY
Mahut's golden ace to save his 3rd match point against Isner (thanks Voo for the clip): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldl0iXQ3NR0
Connors' return to win the 1st point of the 5th set in the match against Chang at RG 1991 and calling it quit right afterwards: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNLsCRSYmFw
Bodiroga's Latigo against Nocioni: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hYvy7p_p6w


Btw, epic failure, every list that contains motor sports..

Re: Most memorable sports moments ever!!!

Just far too many to chose from. Even narrowing it to one sport would be tough.

Paradorn Srichaphan
Kei Nishikori, Donald Young, Somdev Devvarman, Dustin Brown, Steve Johnson, Yannick Maden
Robert Farah, Clement Reix, Alexander Dolgopolov, Nathan Thompson

Re: Most memorable sports moments ever!!!

Vincent Desfrasne beating the best biathlete ever Bjordalen during a memorable sprint in Turin OG 2006.

First coming in mind because Bjoerdalen is such a legend and that win against him was so outstanding.

Todd Martin smashing his racket after beating Carlos Moya at the 2000 US Open has to be one of mine.
