Your favorite sporting moment?

Today's USA soccer win was so exciting for me; I was jumping up and down & screaming with joy when Wambach scored the tying goal. It made me think back on my favorite sports moments and I was wondering what they are for all of you? Here are two of mine:



This one had me crying. I actually couldn't talk for a week because I was screaming for about five minutes straight afterwards and my voice was shot! So exciting!



Probably the greatest match ever in a lot of people's opinions. Felt so great to Rafa finally closed it out after wasting so many opportunities.

Many of them. Hard to pick one out. Today was up there though.

My favourite tennis moment: Ana Ivanovic winning Roland Garros 2008.
My favourite non-tennis moment: Denmark winning the final of the Olympics in women's handball in Athens 2004 That was probably the best and most exciting handball match ever played.

I didn't have to think for a second. This is it. This is the greatest moment in sports I ever got to witness. Magdalena Neuner is this country's greatest active athlete and she will eventually be the greatest of all time if she keeps going at this pace.

Re: Your favorite sporting moment?

Federer hitting that backhand long when match point down in the 2009 US Open Final against Del Potro, nothing even comes close! What a fucking legend you are Juan.

well, there is no "drama" in this. She decided to retire after Olympics, and this was her last race.

The French 4*100 m women relay winning the World Championship at home in front of 70 000 people. Amazing atmosphere. I don't think I've ever been more excited by a sport moment than during Christine Arron's last 60 meters, the way she surpass Tori Edwards, that was something.


France beating Brazil during the 2006 Football World Cup was amazing too.

Pierre-Hugues Herbert - Rafael Nadal - Jeremy Chardy - Thomaz Bellucci - Tommy Robredo - Aljaz Bedene - Simone Bolelli - Pablo Andujar - Lucas Pouille - Ivan Dodig - Nikoloz Basilashvili - Kenny De Schepper - Daniel Brands - Benjamin Mitchell - Maxime Chazal - Jonathan Eysseric - Maxime Teixeira - Noah Rubin - Marc Giner - Adrien Puget - Enzo Couacaud - Ante Pavic - Marcos Giron - David Vega Hernandez
Victoria Azarenka - Simona Halep - Angelique Kerber - Caroline Garcia - Kristina Mladenovic - Clothilde De Bernardi - Tessah Andrianjafitrimo


I only lied cause I didn't want to say the truth

I loved that. Some of my friends were there and they said the atmosphere was indescribable.

Non-tennis related, mine were Dame Kelly Holmes' 800/1500m double at the Athens Olympics and Paula Radcliffe winning the world marathon title in 2005.
