Thanks, Svetlana, for the great pics of the 3 winners at Beijing. I'm really happy for Rafa's win and that he will be #1 in the world starting 8/18. I'm rooting for him at the US Open. He's a super-talented player who plays with great passion and agility.

Wimbledon 2008: John McEnroe hails Rafael Nadal victory as greatest final ever

Rafael Nadal's epic victory over Roger Federer in the Wimbledon final was the "greatest ever seen", according to John McEnroe, the three times winner of the event.

Was this final the greatest ever?

The world number one turned television commentator made his comments after the five-set match on Centre Court which at four hours 48 minutes long was definitely the longest.


John McEnroe has hailed the Roger Federer - Rafael Nadal Wimbledon final as the "greatest ever"
"This is the greatest match I've ever seen," said John McEnroe, whose final against Jimmy Connors in 1982, had previously been the longest final.

His comments were repeated by the world's press and borne out by the huge television audience the final received.

Tennis fans caused a massive surge in electricity demand after Nadal took the Wimbledon title because they were glued to their seats during the epic match.

A 1,400 megawatt spike - equivalent to 550,000 kettles being boiled - was recorded at around 9.20pm, as the Spaniard lifted the trophy. The surge shows millions watched the match.

It was bigger than the increase in demand at half time during this year's Champions' League match when Manchester United beat Chelsea.

National Grid spokeswoman Isobel Rowley said the surge was huge because fans were so transfixed by the tennis, they could not move from the sofa to switch the lights on until the end.

Such was the rivalry between the two players, that the match also smashed betting records. Almost £10 million was staked on the match, according to initial estimates - breaking the £8 million record set just days ago when Nadal crushed Andy Murray in the quarter finals.
