    Federer's dominance against his generation, post-2003

    We always hear that Federer can't be the GOAT because he wasn't even the best of his own era, because he couldn't dominate his competition - Nadal, Djokovic, and Murray. But that really isn't the most fair comparison since Federer is from an older generation compared to those 3. As for his...

    20W20 #1: 2020 Final, Tomic vs Bahmet

    Unfortunately I can't show highlights because the ATP, CIA, KGB, NWO, OwO, and various other scary acronyms have colluded to erase this titanic contest from the internet and from living memory itself. Mury GOAT.

    20W20 Honorable Mentions

    Before we get to our best Wimbledon match of the century, here are some honorable mentions that didn't quite make it into the top 20: 2018 SF, Anderson vs Isner A marathon to end all marathons - literally. The two big-serving powerhouses clashed in a drama-filled match which never seemed to...

    20W20 #2: 2018 SF, Djokovic vs Nadal

    When Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic meet on a tennis court, greatness is the inevitable result. Their 6-hour battle in 2012 was hailed by many former greats and analysts as the Greatest Match of All Time. But in 2018, the two Titans of tennis produced another unforgettable performance to rival...

    20W20 #3: 2001 Final, Ivanišević vs Rafter

    I have seen it before, and it's certainly a high-quality match as are all Federer-Djokovic matches. Just wouldn't go as far as including it in my top 20, although it deserves an honorable mention.

    20W20 #3: 2001 Final, Ivanišević vs Rafter

    It was certainly one of the best 4-set finals and had one of the greatest tiebreaks of all time in the 2nd, but it wasn't really competitive after the first 2 sets.

    20W20 #3: 2001 Final, Ivanišević vs Rafter

    2 points: A. The 2012 AO final would be a rather interesting choice in a list of the 20 best Wimbledon matches of the century. B. Incorrect :giggle: Thank you!
