2011 was really baaaaaaaad

I still can't believe that Rafa played so bad in a slam final. Really, Rafa "the great", who always plays great in these big matches?! He was better in 2006!!

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

The quality of play was extraordinary and the tension was incredible.

The 2008 Wimbledon match was also great but the rain delays were a bummer. Federer was a bundle of nerves for the first two sets and played like crap. The end of the final set was played in almost total darkness which was unfair to both players.

The 2008 final was more recent. Many MTF members were children in 2001 and probably didn't see the greatest match.

Thank you Goran and Patrick for the best match ever.



That Wimbledon was the best tournament ever

Last year's Wimbledon doubles final was the greatest Wimbledon final ever.

2001. Made a great impression on pre-teen me. Not just great drama, but great grass tennis too. And the guy I was rooting for won to boot, though both would have been deserved winners.

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.
I've simply nothing to add to this.

Couldn't agree more. That was the match where it was most clear Novak was in his head. Before that match he actually played great in the tournament and Nole, not so much.

2001 easily. Only reason why it probably doesn't top the poll is that many MTF posters weren't born by then yet.

2004 was the highest quality one. 2005 was the most entertaining one.

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

Really, its embarrasing to vote for anything other than 2001, the quality of that match is not even that important, the point is that its safe to say that a match with that kind of atmosphere, and a movie like story behind it, will most likely never be repeated again.

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).

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

Fedal tards ruined the poll, yet I've seen none of them actually come in here and defend their reasoning behind voting that final.... I think we all know Wimbledon 2001 was the best final of the naughties.

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.
