What’s that, ANOTHER Federer/Nadal article? Yes, it is. But this is a must see.
This year and this week marked the 10th anniversary of that final. The greatest tennis final of all time. Roger Federer vs. Rafael Nadal in 2008 Wimbledon final. But rather than rehash the same shots and just talking about it being the greatest, this BBS documentary goes in-depth with both players and beyond. Strokes of Genius: Federer v Nadal uses archive footage to tell the story of both men from childhood to their career peaks. And it just so happens they are the two greatest male players of all time. Interviews with the likes of McEnroe, Borg, Evert, and Navratilova alongside comments from family and friends from both camps, provide a well-rounded picture of what it meant to everyone involved on and off the court.
If you can spare 99 minutes, I recommend you watch this before it leaves the iPlayer on 6th August.
