Supreme Nadal

Of the four championship tournaments of tennis, there is none as celebrated as Wimbledon at the All England Club. And until today, Roger Federer of Switzerland reigned, having won the last five years. Until today...

The world's number two, Rafael Nadal, beat the world's number one in a five-setter for the ages. 6-4, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-7 (8), 9-7. Perhaps the greatest men's final ever.

Nadal now has five championships under his belt: four wins at Roland Garros, and one at Wimbledon. Federer remains at twelve championships: five Wimbledon, four U.S. Open, and three Australian Open.
