No contest? Nothing else filmworthy? I disagree.


Having had three shots at glory (the third being the one he totally blew) he was seemingly a spent force.
Appeared on the first day looking like he'd been sleeping in a park for a week. A wild card ffs. Given no chance.
One of the biggest characters the sport ever had, he filmed segments for the bbc throughout the fortnight talking to himself.
And in a final on an extra day, in front of a frenzied crowd rarely seen at SW19, he finally seized his destiny.

Because he was so expressive you got to go through the whole trial of that final set with him.
Everything from his joy at getting the final break to frantically shaking his arm to try to get rid of the tightness.

Amazing winners speech as well, remember him saying thanks for giving him a wild card(!) and then looking up at the sky to dedicate his title to Dražen Petrović.

in the last 15 years has anyone anywhere showed up to a fancy dress party or dressed up for any reason in the clothes that goran and rafter were wearing in the final?

who cares? I don't even have a clue what 1980 refers to. 2008 was the greatest match of all time and Ivanisevic final one of the most iconic because of his journey.

The rest I agree with.
