1. Wimbledon 2008
vs Roger Federer
You know I said Nadal and Federer had a great rivalry, well that was demonstrated perfectly in potentially the best ever Wimbledon final, and indeed the best in tennis' history perhaps.
Rain delays, comebacks, missed opportunities, darkness; this match had it all.
Federer was aiming to become only the second man to ever win six Wimbledon titles in a row and Nadal was hoping to win his first Slam away from Roland Garros.
The stage had been set with 2007's five set final which the Swiss star had the quality to outlast his younger opponent.
2008 was different though, and the Spaniard looked on-course to exact simple revenge after cruising into a two set lead.
An astonishing comeback from a true champion left Nadal stunned, especially after he squandered Championship points in the fourth set.
However, as the match descended into darkness following rain delays, it was Nadal who won Wimbledon's longest ever final 6-4 6-4 6-7 6-7 9-7 at nine o'clock at night, seven hours after the match had begun, including nearly five hours of play-time.
If there is another final with Nadal even half as exciting as this, then we'll be in for a treat.
Bravo Rafael Nadal, a titan of the tennis world.
