If there was any disappointment at this match it was at the end.  I would have loved to have seen both players on the podium  together. I was hoping that Novak would invite Rafael back to the stadium and they would stand together in triumph.  Best co0mmentary was from the Australian team with Connors as guest anchor


You can see the match on you tube

Without any doubt The Australian open 2012 was the best. I think I will NEVER see such a match again,  These guys are gods to me... I was jumping up and down on my couch as I watched this match.  It was an epic of tennis and the most exciting match ever.  A MUST watch event.

This years AUS open followed by Wimbledon 1980 for me. In fact maybe put them on a par as the atmosphere for Borg vs Mac was extra special.
