What do you remember most about Wimbledon 2008?

Mine is Zie Jheng's incredible run to the SF (by beating three seeds as a WC), the all-Williams final, and THAT netcord by Ana against Dechy.

Australian Open 2010 Final Result:-
Lost to Serena Williams 4-6, 6-3, 2-6 (Great job, girl! Now prepare for FO!)

Meeting Ana Ivanovic and finding out that a top commentator posts on these forums.

All Williams Final.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

Nadal vs Federer in the FINAL. Nothing on the women's side that memorable. Men's side had arguably the greatest match ever played. How can you pick anything else

Whom? I knew a certain someone was passing of my posts as their own views! Should I sue?

Anyway, Williamsdon! All williams final, doubles title! Venus winning that fifth Dish, finding her form after a dismal year.

Honourable mention to Rafa

That Federer passing shot on match point.

Too bad he lost nevertheless.

It was awesome, that was one of the best matches in history at least where drama is concerned, but those first 2 sets were If it was a best of 3 match, WTA final would have been better.

But anyway with respect to the last sentence, Subjectivity is key.

PS. Nadal's dramatic dip at the end Could have given Leyomi Mizrahi a run for her money.

I was walking outside the entrance of the court and there are some seats, yeah. And this person was typing on their laptop. I wasn’t being nosey but when I looked over their shoulder they were making a post. I didn’t see the username, so this I can’t tell you and even if I did, it wouldn’t prove anything.
My best friend Lizzy came out looking for me and I told her. She asked me to point out who it was and I said , look, there, that’s the person. “OMG she said, do you know who that is?”. I had no idea, then she told me this person was a commentator on tennis. About an hour later I came into contact with this person and I made a remark about these forums, they just laughed, but I could tell they understood what I meant.

Re: What do you remember most about Wimbledon 2008?

No question : the men's final. It's historic.
And that's historic in terms of decades, not in years or even months as some myopic media tend to think.
