Rafa and Roger final better than womens

Well I usually prefer womens tennis but the Final between Roger and Rafa was just awesome on all levels. Emotion, Skill, heart...... what a joy to watch!

Rafa wins 6-4 6-4 6-7 (5-7) 6-7 (8-10) 9-7 in 4 hours 48 minutes longest Wimbledon final, I almost shed a tear at the end

That sort of epic 5 setter compared to a 2 setter sorta puts the pay debate into perspective.

Re: Rafa and Roger final better than womens

Well I think we've been spoiled to have two amazing finals at Wimbledon this year. Makes up for the blow outs at Roland Garros, etc..

Re: Rafa and Roger final better than womens

It's being called the greatest match of all time.

It is better than any women's or men's match that has preceeded it.

Men's matches are always better. Nothing new.

Re: Rafa and Roger final better than womens

No need to have a thread for this.
It was obvious for anyone who watched both finals

Re: Rafa and Roger final better than womens

Well I think in the past in womens tennis you have had great rivalries Martina and Chris, Steffi and Monica..... now its like every grand slam u dont know whos going to win in the womens. The Williams final was good tennis but nothing to excite the crowd like the mens.


roger and Rafa are like a great rivalry which adds to the excitement

So why add to those "more important" threads you do not like?

Firstly, this is a women's tennis forum, those threads have a place here, this does not. People have already started threads about the men's final here and all of them have been locked, so look for this to go the same way soon. Go to MTF if you want to discuss it.

And the equal pay debate has just been done to death. Yawn.
