It has to be Novak Djokovic finally winning Roland Garros and completing the NCYGS.
So be it.
So be it.
I would add Chang's remarkable run to the title in 1989 and the stunning turnaround of 2004. Who would ever have expected outcomes like that?So many huge moments.
Just from recent memory:
Rafa's 2012 title (his most emotional RG win?)
Rafa's first major title, and the beginning of the narrative and immense pressure on Federer to complete the career GS
Muster finally winning one
GUGA's victories and signing of the court, and the arrival of poly as the most important tennis tech innovation since graphite.
Federer career GS in 2009
Hingis having the wild meltdown against Steffi
Schiavone coming from the clouds against Stosur
Sharapova's career GS and outliving her own hilarious "Cow on Ice" remark
Djokovic endless pursuit of the career GS and epic losses to Rafa, and eventually overthrowing in 2015, and finally the title in the chaotic, rained-out 2016 RG
I can never reconcile the fact that the same people who downplay clay get so much satisfaction from their favourite player winning on it. No further evidence is needed that the reason they malign clay is simply sour grapes that Rafael Nadal dominates it from start to finish.
Lol...Yeah, poor Djokovic "only" won 3 slams in a row before that, lots of masters, WTF. Yet everyone should feel bad for him because he lost 1 match in this period? I guess it means you hope he will never lose a match again, after all he has to make up for the 180+ losses he had in his career.Even tho it was at the expense of Murray, i have to say that it was Djokovic finally winning it. I feel like everyone watching wanted him to finally get it after the heartbreaking loss to Wawrinka the previous year and when he got it, it just felt right. Nadal getting beaten by Soderling was also pretty damn satisfying.
