The Most Powerful Picture In Tennis History

One of the Greatest moments in tennis. My top five.
I was five years old at the time this happened so obviously I didn't watch it at the time.
Years later when I watched the video of Goran nervously trying to serve it out and failing to do so and when he finally did it, it got to me. Perhaps the most passionate tennis moment I have ever seen. The way he broke in tears was really special.

I want to go and watch it on YouTube but I will end up sobbing I am sure. Too good a moment. Priceless.

That match is their favourite match as well (Djokodal )..
Both of them gave their ultimate best dat day .
Win or lose ,proud day as a fan :)
Yep matches like those lift the spectator above the temptation of a win for their favorite. I usually root for Novak against anyone other than Fed but I remember watching the 2018Wimbley SF and a point came in the match after which I didn't care who was going to win. I was enjoying myself so much that it didn't matter who won. I just wanted it to never stop.

I ended up rooting for Nadal. Good match though I only caught from the 3rd set on I think.

Djokodal slam matches are so nervy ..
I enjoyed WB18 till a certain point ..
Then it was beyond my limit..
I switched off my TV in 5th set ...
I could not handle any more pressure..

Wimbledon uploaded the whole match in 1080p on YouTube. Didn't see that coming at all. I downloaded it in 1080p and watched it again.
I can count on 1 hand the number of full tennis matches I've watched after they aired live. But even I watched 2018 Wimby semi again from start to finish and it was majestic. Djokovic is far less boring when he plays Nadal.

Although I am a Freddie boy but I get most hyped for a Djokodal match. I especially like their clay matches. We are in for one or 2 of those this clay season.

War of attrition guaranteed!
Nadal needs to slay though, if Djokovic mops up on clay, the year is over for the entire tour.
