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

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

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.

I can understand his lost in the USO and in the AO where he played at a good level, but, this final was embarrassing

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.

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

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

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

yeah Prodigy, spot on ... that's how I feel too. The 2008 final was epic (and expected btw), but not as good as 2001 in terms of pure entertainment, excitement, quality of play ... there was so much 'magic' in that match . If some of you younger guys haven't seen it, you must... Go to you tube, you'll be able to find the complete match.

2001. No other year even comes close, including the 2008 "epic".

The 2001 Wibledon final was rated sixteenth at the list of 100 Greatest Sporting Moments by a British TV station if I remember correctly (It wasn't BBC, channel 4 I think).

Or maybe because it was on a Monday and we had to go to work and couldn't see it . Or was that the one where my TV broke down the night before and I couldn't manually programme the video? I really wanted Rafter to win that one, too (Ivanisevic beating Henman in that horrible semi might have had something to do with it, too). What I saw of it later was a very good match, certainly.

Definitely not 2009: I watched that one on DVD the other day and decided life was too short to repeat the experience

Think I'm probably tempted to say 2007, bearing in mind that 2009 is the only one I've watched more than once (yet. Two others are still on my LOVEFILM rental list). I have reservations about voting for a match where the result may have partly depended on which player had more carrots in his diet
