One of the great sporting landmarks, just as it happened
on 13 July 2009
If you are looking to actually re-live the Wimbledon Final of 2008, this BBC DVD production does the trick perfectly.
Aside from the coverage during rain delays of course, this is the Federer v Nadal epic exactly as it went out live and on air at the time. For anyone who prefers extra build up to be included, I should warn that this DVD is pretty limited in that department, with only a rather corny and reading of Rudyard Kipling's 'If' to create suspense. However, with the quality of the tennis played, the intensity of the competition, and the excitement of the twists and turns this match provided, you will soon be captivated, completely forgetting that you are watching a recording, rather than the live event.
A monumental contest between two of the sports' all time greats, this is an essential for any tennis fan's collection.
