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:crying2:

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

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..

:lol: 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.

It was obvious for anyone who watched both finals

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

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.

Well if this is womens only forum why is it not called womenstennisforum instead of tennisforum. Is tennis only women? It used to be called wtatour.com but im assuming the wtatour was about to sue their arses off:rolleyes:

fine whoever lock the thread but it shows an immaturity for a thread comparing the mens and womens final. If people are so sensitive they cant read that then their got problems

Saying that this one match puts the debate into perspective is like saying the Men's RG Final puts everything into perspective. At RG the women's final was more competetive and more dramatic - should we use that one match to argue that women should be paid more?

All that can be said is that we saw a GREAT mens final today. It too 2 sets and a rain delay to warm up, and was prolonged mostly because of Feds serve ... but that sets 4 and 5 :eek: *swoon* *faint* I was literally feeling dizzy, the last few games brought me to my knees. The intensity...

Rafa :sobbing: :bowdown:

Fed. I'm not a fan and I wanted to :hug: him in the end.

Um no.

But back to relevant points, that was the best match ever, the ladies had 05' though, and both finals this year were some display!

I think the last match that had that effect on me was Henin V Venus Williams.

It didn't last as long, and was hindered by Vee's health issue IMO, but that was a hell of a match. It's just a shame the WTA has been denied a few of these gems, because had they happened, Top players, emotions tied in - this debate would be non existent. ATP are just lucky to have the rivalry.

Yes the Henin Vs Venus Williams match of last years US open was fantastic what a shame it wasnt in the final.

the womens GS finals of last few years have been disapointing though, crowds have politely clapped bu they have been dry, emotionlness affairs........ BUT there has been some great matches in earlier rounds

This was the best match of all time in my opinion, a classic. God, I was on the edge of my seat for the entire match. I just wish Roger grinded out the win. Ugh, I can't stand Nadal and his rabid fans. :rolleyes::(
