Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer played the epic Wimbledon 2008 final. Rafa improved considerably over the years on grass-courts, and that year he won his first historical London title by beating his nemesis at the end of an exciting, dramatic and balanced match, with the final score of 6-4 6-4 6-7(5) 6-7(8) 9-7.
Wimbledon has witnessed more than a century of great matches, unforgettable rivalries and moments that will remain forever in the memory of fans of the Game. The lawns of the All England Club remain, in the collective imagination, a seraphic fortnight that transcends the history of sport.
This year Wimbledon will be one of the most controversial editions in tennis history, for several reasons. Of all, of course, there are two. The decision of the organizers of the tournament to ban Russian and Belarusian tennis players, then the harsh reactions of the ATP and WTA.
Suffice it to say that tennis players will not be able to defend the points obtained last season. A considerable damage for Novak Djokovic and Matteo Berrettini. Among the surprises, the great, highly anticipated return to the court of Serena Williams, one year after the injury right on the lawns of Church Road.
