Even as a Nadal fan, Nadal vs Rosol Wimbledon 2012 was right up there IMO. That 5th set from Rosol. :worship:

OP just not thinking before 2008 or do you genuinely consider the legendary matches before that not worthy enough? :eek: Should have added at the very least Wimbledon 2001 final and the Mac-Borg Wimby final 1980 IIRC.

Safin-Fed AO '05 is genuinely the highest sustained level of play I've seen between two guys over five sets.

A couple of classics:

Rosewall - Laver 1972 WCT Final


And Borg - McEnroe Wimbledon 1980 Final


Homework for most of everyone on this forum, not one mentioning a match before 2000 (except oranges).

In that very brief clip between Laver and Rosewall, there was more variety of shot than one sees in most of today's matches. All with much smaller wood rackets.

AO 2005 and 2009 semis come to mind, along with the 2 great Wimbledon turnarounds if only for the drama (Sampras-Fed 2001, Fed-Nadal 2008). USO11 and AO12 finals for the physical intensity, and also the USO 2001 QF Sampras-Agassi, with 4 tie-breaks.
