Maybe you remember it that way. Probably because you get stressed out whenever the French final isn’t a a total massacre. Doubt it’s a common Mandela.

def mandela effect if u don't remembers that score line, a terrifying screetching noise throughout the match, alien abduction during set 4, a giraffe for an ump, a kia parked in the audience, and stawberries and cream snack time between change overs with undy going "my fingers"

I wonder what other result got misplaced there? I mean Nadal never even beat Fed 3, 2 and 3.
I was glancing through his slam finals and the only one ending in 3,2,3 was the 13 RG vs Ferrer.

I wonder if there's a shirt hanging up for that one with a 5 set scoreline under it.

Nadal beats God-level peaking GOATDasco in a marathon 7 hr match and then proceeds to straight set Feddy boy with a day LESS rest. This is what a guy with BIG BALLS does. PETE would be proud.


P.S. Surprised no one knows what happened there. Organizers clearly have the score of the 2019 AO final.

The 2009 semi between nadal and verdasco was the 5 set thriller, maybe that’s why people get confused

Federer wept after this final because it seemed Nadal well and truely had his number at this point. He was now number 1 and had been winning most of the fedal matches

Good call! The plaque manufacturer probably made one for the Ferrer match and re-used the template for this one.

Ironic how the fake score they put up there is the result of the Nadal-Djokovic match in 2019. They probably looked up 2019 instead of 2009,

Anyway, Mandela never won the NCYGS (let alone the CYGS), so he can hardly be mentioned in the GOAT debate.

And don't mention the "imprisoned at peak" nonsense. Coulda wouldas don't count.
