Rafael Nadal vs Roger Federer, 2008 Wimbledon final: It's hard to believe that it has been almost 12 years since that epic battle under the cloudy London sky and on the lush green SW19. The memories of that match still feel so raw. Federer had five Wimbledon titles by then and had reached yet another final. Nadal, already relishing 'the king of clay' title, had been knocking on Federer's door for back-to-back seasons and was in 2008, the favourite ahead of Federer to win the title.
Q. Can you compare the run that you're on right now to 2008, 2010, when you didn't drop a set in the French Open, you came here. Can you compare that 2008, 2010 to what's happening currently?RAFAEL NADAL: No, 2010, 2008, I was playing finals in a row here. 2008 was the third, already played two finals in a row and in 2010 was the fourth in a row because I didn't play here in 2009. Different story.But at the same time you never know. We'll see, no? We are just beginning of tournament. I won two rounds. Happy for that, but doesn't make sense to think about these kind of things. 2b1af7f3a8
