Federer v. Nadal
Borg-McEnroe? Sampras-Agassi? Lacoste-Cochet? Maybe not better, but certainly as compelling. Correct me if I'm wrong, but from my look of the history of the Championships, this is the first time the same two men have met in the final four times, let alone four straight times. (Navratilova and Evert met a total of 2,456 times for the women's finals, and Navratilova, who has body parts almost as young as Joan Rivers's). I'm picking Nadal, preferably in five, because I'm tired of Federer, because I don't remember the last time the Swiss produced a good novel, because Wimbledon finals are made for five-set matches, and because every year one hopes of a set or two that can rise up to the Borg-McEnroe fourth-setter in 1980 (the first three sets having been pretty dull).
