In sports, the nostalgia of a theme often overtakes the true meaning of an accomplishment.
If this were not true, you would not hear so many sports fans calling a player overrated or underrated, and you would not be reading article after article reminding people of a remarkable event that the general public seems to have forgotten.
After watching the Federer vs. Roddick Wimbledon Final, I expected, unlike some, a close match, perhaps not a five set match, but a strong effort from both Roddick and Federer.
I got a match of a lifetime, and there were certain facts about the match that I feel support it over the previous year's Final as the greatest match ever played, at least at Wimbledon, and at least in the Open Era.
The following slides entail why I feel it was better than Federer vs. Nadal.
Once again, enjoy.
