We had friends over from Australia when he played Goran Ivanisevic at Wimbledon. It was one of the best times I ever had watching any sport.

Wimbledon 2001 Final: Rafter vs. Ivanisevic
One of the most dramatic and thrilling matches in tennis history, the epic five-set battle between the third-seeded Australian Patrick Rafter and Croatia's unseeded Goran Ivanisevic is one for the ages.

After a spectacular 9-7 fifth set, the longest ever produced in the history of the Wimbledon tournament, Ivanisevic emerged victorious, becoming the first wild card entry to win professional tennis' most prestigious tournament
