Open Court Flashback – epic at Wimbledon, 2008

MELBOURNE – Open Court’s first Wimbledon was an unforgettable one.

Not only did Venus Williams defeat sister Serena, but Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer played a crazy, epic (an overused term, but applicable in this case) and dramatic five-setter in the final.

It finished in the dark, after a very long day and some rain delays.

Here’s what it looked like (Fed cardigan alert).

Daniel Nestor and partner Nenad Zimonjic won the doubles that year. And a couple of Canadian kids played in the junior doubles – you might remember them: Milos Raonic and Vasek Pospisil.
