Rafael Nadal Wins Wimbledon 2008

Rafael Nadal Wins Wimbledon 2008

Rafael Nadal holds up the Wimbledon trophy after winning his first title on Sunday, ending Roger Federer‘s five-year reign. At four hours and 48 minutes, it was the longest final in Wimbledon history.

Nadal, 22, prevailed after winning two sets, losing two sets and then finally winning fifth match at 6-4, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-7 (8), 9-7. He became the first man to win the French Open (also against Federer) and Wimbledon in the same year since Bjorn Borg in 1980.

After his winning match point at Wimbledon, Nadal fell to the ground and started to cry. He then pulled himself together and ran up into the stands to hug his parents and his uncle/coach Toni Nadal. Touching moment.

¡FELICIDADES, NADAL!

FYI: Venus Williams defeated younger sister Serena in straight sets: 7–5, 6–4. Together, they dominated in doubles over Lisa Raymond and Samantha Stosur: 6–2, 6–2.

Ooh, good for him! I felt sorry for him last year when Federer beat him. Glad to see Nadal finally take the title!!

It’s the year of Spain; first Euro, than Wimbledon! Congrats!

I still love Federer though :D

too bad Roger is still number one (:

and great federer too

VAMOS VAMOS VAMOS RAFA!!! CONGRATS!!!

Freakin’ AWESOME match! Well deserved by Rafa. Both played their hearts out, but in the end Rafa persevered to secure his 1st Wimbledon WIN!!!

Both Rafa and Fed need to be so proud of this match…tennis desperately needed this final and it was the highest level of tennis I’ve ever seen in a grand slam final…

Mariana: obviously you watch little tennis…if you did, you’d be able to appreciate what Rafa did today against the #1 grass court player…I say grow up and give credit where it’s due!!

Both are class acts and I was so proud to see this level of play for five sets…wonderful match!!!

sorry but your opinion is a total bullshit.
nadal is a great player not only a moonballer, see the match again and then speak.
federer was in the game only because his aces.nadal is a great player great spirit great person.
I respect federer he is the number one. but nadal this year is so much better he won the roland garros miami atp and wimbledon and he is so near now to federer.

I WAS SO FU***** EXCITED I ALMOST DESTROYED MY ROOM

YAY

The best match I’ve seen in tennis. Sorry to say (since I’m a Federer fan), but it’s just going to get harder to beat Nadal now. You can see Nadal’s game has stepped up a lot more since last year.

I wonder if you played tennis a day in your life you dumb a** bit**

You can’t take away Rafa’s talent and humility, but I was sad when Federer lost. He fought so hard, he’s been so graceful and such a strong, positive presence in tennis, it was hard to see the king de-throned. :(
