Classic Match of the Week

Our feature that takes a look at some of tennis’s classics is now in full flow. With Wimbledon around the corner it was hard not to pick a final of the great event, I immediately thought of this one.

The 2008 Wimbledon final was undoubtedly an epic that’ll be remembered for years to come. Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, then the two dominating forces in men’s tennis, met in a sensational final that had it all. Recall it below.

Three-time Wimbledon champion John McEnroe described the four hours and 48 minutes contest as the ‘greatest ever seen’. I certainly can’t argue with that, it was a tremendous show from two of the sport’s best ever competitors.

You never know, we may see something like it again this year but what is a guarantee is that The Championships will throw up the usual surprises and excellent tennis that makes the tournament so special.
