    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...

    Djokovic's game is beautiful

    He may be #3 in the race but he will always be #1 in our hearts :giggle:

    Djokovic's game is beautiful

    :love: :love: Lethal yet pretty. And his game looks even smoother at court level.

    20W20 #1: 2020 Final, Tomic vs Bahmet

    I wasn't actually planning to, I just didn't feel like writing about the 2008 final now :-D

    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.
  13. Cabeza del Demonio

    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!

    20W20 #3: 2001 Final, Ivanišević vs Rafter

    This match might as well have been straight outta Hollywood. It was a battle between two of the last great serve-and-volleyers, each desperate to make their mark on Wimbledon history. Goran Ivanisevic, ranked World #125, nearing the end of his career after 3 heartbreaking defeats and his...

    20W20 #4: 2019 Final, Djokovic vs Federer

    He's won 8 Wimbledon titles and reached another 4 finals. No one really comes close. I think it's safe to say that Federer is the greatest ever on grass.

    20W20 #4: 2019 Final, Djokovic vs Federer

    One of the most iconic matches in tennis history - one of history's great comeback victories that would help define Novak Djokovic's career. Once again, it was Djokovic facing down the 20-time Grand Slam champion and arguably the greatest grass courter of all time, Roger Federer. The Maestro had...

    20W20 #5: 2009 Final, Federer vs Roddick

    We're at the top 5 now! Today features Federer's record-breaking win against Roddick. Only 7 years had passed since Pete Sampras had won his 14th Grand Slam title and set the standard for future champions, but the Swiss Maestro now stood at the threshold of sporting immortality. But standing...

    Gotta respect the man. Such a classy player doesn't deserve such a toxic fanbase. That said,

    20W20 #6: 2014 Final, Djokovic vs Federer

    Wow, didn't realize how many mistakes I put in this Typo, he had a 5-2 lead IIRC That was not a typo, I just have a goldfish memory :-D Mixed it up with his 2013 Delpo match. Looks like I need to rewatch now!

    20W20 #6: 2014 Final, Djokovic vs Federer

    Coming in at #6 is one of the most emotional wins of Novak Djokovic's career, a match filled with twists and turns, drama, and nonstop jaw-dropping tennis. After Rafael Nadal's upset loss in the 4th round, the Serb superstar was now one match away from stealing the World #1 ranking from him...

    20W20 #7: 2007 Final, Federer vs Nadal

    At 7th on my 20W20 list comes the first true Grand Slam epic of the legendary Federer-Nadal rivalry. It was a match of exquisite quality, with Federer at the height of his dominance facing a stern challenge from the Matador of Mallorca. Nadal had come a long way from a year ago when Federer had...

    Tsitsipas wants Rafa banned for ever ...

    Tsitsipas's game has all-timer potential IMO. The only technical weakness he has that would prevent him from winning Slams is his return, which he has time to fix. Apart from that, he's got a complete attacking all-court game with more variety and certainly a better net game than any other top...

    Tsitsipas wants Rafa banned for ever ...

    He's clearly joking. Stef may be inconsistent and choke in important matches, but he certainly doesn't show any fear playing the top guys. The toughest opponents always seem to bring out the best in him. You won't be calling TsitsiGOAT a chump when he wins double digit Slams :cool:

    20W20 #8: 2017 4R, Muller vs Nadal

    My pick for #8 in Wimbledon's greatest matches is another marathon 5-setter, this time the thrilling 4th round encounter between the legendary Matador of Mallorca and a relatively unknown serve-and-volleyer from Luxembourg, Gilles Muller. It was a rollercoaster ride of a match that kept fans on...
