Roger Federer retained his crown as king of Wimbledon on Sunday 8th July 2007, beating young Spanish prince Rafael Nadal to secure his fifth consecutive title, matching the legendary reign of the watching Bjorn Borg, the king of this court in a previous era.
The 7-6 (9-7) 4-6 7-6 (7-3) 2-6 6-2 victory he achieved followed a feast of tennis fit for any king. At three hours and 45 minutes, it was the third longest men's single final in Wimbledon's history and the most thrilling climax to the Championships since Goran Ivanisevic's dramatic victory in front of a raucous third Monday Centre Court crowd in 2001.
Federer was at his very best, and he certainly needed to be to hold at bay the tigerish challenge of the Spanish 21-year-old. Last year Nadal lost here in four sets, this time he took the master of grass court tennis the full distance.
In a breathtaking fifth set Nadal, who had undergone treatment to his right knee towards the end of the previous set, twice held two break points. But twice Federer rose magnificently to the challenge, fighting off the danger before he broke Nadal for what proved to be a crucial 4-2 lead.

The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because the DVD does not offer much more than just the match as it was broadcast. Read morePublished on September 14, 2009 by Duncan
The video captured the essence of the match and was entertaining from the first point. The British commentaries fell flat, though, compared to their American counterparts.Published on July 15, 2009 by Martin Buencamino

Thanks - good to know it's the complete game. I assume then that the running time listed by Amazon is wrong

No, it is not available on HD DVD. HD DVD no longer exists anyway, it is Blu ray now, which only movies are released on for the time being. However, this match and all other Tennis matches on DVD are of excellent quality, even better when played on a Blu ray player.
