Lucky you who could watch the Wimbledon final live
Although I'm sure a lot of us would have probably got a heart attack during the match.
(I put the Roger-Richard match in the poll just for you by the way
I think the amount of answers for the Wimbledon match depend a lot on the fact that Roger won the match in the end, that he equaled Borgs record there and last, but not least that he was able, like last year, to beat Rafa straight away after a hurting loss just a few weeks earlier in Paris. Quality wise it was surely not his best performance during a whole match, but due to the circumstances I find it understandable that the match got a lot of votes
