I personally found this semi to be more like Wimbledon 07 - the challenger takes the king to 5 sets, but loses ultimately. That match was pretty uneven too.

The parallels are quite striking - if you consider RG final 2012 = Wimby final 2006, then RG semi 2013 = Wimby final 07, hopefully we'll get a classic upset at RG next year.  :whistle:

The best 5 setter for me on clay atleast is Rome final 06 - and I don't think that can ever be bested.

That match sucked ass because Fed was saved by Rafa's knee injury. Rafa had to change his style of play and shorten the points.

Pretty lame to be honest. Hard to be honest when you're a Fedfan, I understand...

Great match, not such a great clip. Sound and picture are not perfectly aligned.
