The atmosphere at Wimbledon 2013 was electric. If you're including atmosphere in the ranking it's one of the top finals.

Thank god we have Muzzatards on this forum.That was the worst final in the last 20 years
Yes you're right. Sampras-Pioline and Nadal-Berdych were much more gripping matches.

The 2009 final was more exciting for me than the 2008 one, because I wasn't sure whether Federer was gonna make it or not. In the 2008 final I always thought that Nadal was in relative control of the situation and Federer had already started to show his vulnerability during the season, so it was more or less his final stand and a confirmation of Nadal's superiority. The 2009 final was more chaotic.
For a Wimbledon final to be a classic there are two criteria that need to be fulfilled 1) both players need to play well 2) an uncertainty before and during as to who is going to prevail. There hasn't been a final in the last 10 years where both of those criteria are fulfilled completely but quite a few where neither of those criteria are fullfilled. ( the last 4 years in particular ).
2006 and 2007 were also good finals ( 2007 in particular but there was always the sense that Federer would prevail ).

Lets hope tomorrow's final will be one of the better ones.

Where did that sense come from, because Nadal was definitely the better player and deserved to win. Irc Federer won two close tiebreaks and was outplayed for the rest of the match. Nadal was also heavily fatigued, as there was a lot of rain then and the schedule was very crazy.

For me the most exciting one was definitely 2008(the greatest match ever), then followed by 2009, 2007 was good too. 2004 was exciting as well.

I think we can all agree 2010 was the worst.

Even as a Nadal fan, I was falling asleep trying to watch that one.
