Rafael Nadal remembers classic 2008 final against Roger Federer

"Very hard match especially with what happened on the fourth set, match point, an advantage in the tie-break. So when I won, it was one of the most emotional moments in my career. Probably if we don't win that last game, we needed to stop because it was unbelievably late and the image of the court with all the flags and lights was unbelievable.

Everybody knows how important it was for me to win here after losing two finals in a row, 2006 and 2007." In that moment I did not realize they were there, somebody told me, They are there, so I said, Okay. Ok I am going. Just to thank them for being there."
