The 2008 Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer Wimbledon championship match has been ranked as one of the top five matchups in history by BBC expert Boris Becker. Nadal made a significant impact at The Championships in 2008 after defeating the Swiss in a memorable final 6-4 6-4 6-7 6-7 9-7 after falling to Federer in back-to-back Wimbledon finals.
Federer tried to continue his dominance at Wimbledon, but Nadal stopped him from claiming a sixth straight victory at The Championships. Many people believe that, if not the best Grand Slam final in history, then at least one of the greatest Grand Slam finals was the 2008 Wimbledon final.
“How they were able to play in the dark is what I remember most about the 2008 championship game! According to the BBC, Becker remembered the 2008 Wimbledon championship as being “very dark.” “They would have most likely only played one more game, at most, before it was called off, and we would have had the championship on Monday.
“You have these matchups that continue through time and people remember them 30 or 40 years afterwards. Roger was the favourite, so it was a tremendous surprise that Rafa won.” It would be one of the top five tennis matches, if you were to choose the top five.
Nadal is dreaming right now. Season 2022
In his book, Rafael Nadal: My Story, the 22-time Grand Slam victor discussed his passion for soccer and going to see Real Madrid play. Football was and is still my passion today, he remarked when speaking about it.
Even if I have a match later that day, I will occasionally get out of bed to watch a major Real Madrid game that is on TV at five in the morning, whether I’m in Australia or Bangkok for a competition. And if necessary, I’ll plan my training schedule for the day around the times of the games.
He said, “I’m a fanatic. When I was four years old, my godfather recalls how, to his amazement, I would be able to name every team in the Spanish first division after being shown photographs of their shields.
Real Madrid and Liverpool squared off in the Champions League championship earlier this year. The Stade de France in Paris served as the venue for the game. The French Open was taking place as the final was taking place.
