DVD has full 260 minute match
Psymon JC | Jersey City, NJ | 04/25/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an absolute classic tennis match - one of the best I've ever seen. The fifth set will surely go down in tennis history.

The DVD is incorrectly listed on Amazon as 180 minutes and 1 disc. It is in fact 260 minutes (the full length) and comes on 2 discs. The DVD also features 16:9 anamorphic widescreen video (not full screen format). The contents of the DVD are as follows:

Disc 1 (115 minutes)
1. Interviews and Warmups
2. First Set
3. Second Set

Disc 2 (154 minutes)
1. Third Set
2. Fourth Set
3. Fifth Set
4. Trophy Presentations
5. Borg Congraulates Federer

The commentary appears to be the UK BBC commentary which includes some comments from Jimmy Connors (I think). If they could have included the John McEnroe commentary that was provided in the US CBS broadcast as an audio option, this disc would have been absolutely perfect!"
The way it should be done
Paul Magnussen | Campbell, CA USA | 04/23/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For 25 years the inane babbling of Dick Enberg, perpetually oscillating between the obvious and the boring, has been like a toothache in every Grand Slam Men's final I've watched.

This BBC coverage, by contrast, is an object lesson in how to do it right: intelligent, perceptive and minimalist. The commentators include John Lloyd (British Davis Cup Captain and two-time Mixed Doubles Champion) and Jimmy Connors (two-time Singles champion -- addressing his colleague as "Lloydie"). Both therefore have a deep knowledge of their field, and both are excellent. Their remarks are all interesting and address such matters as why someone missed a particular shot, or who has the momentum; there are no repetitions of the umpire (Carlos Ramos)'s calling of the score, no statistics about how many backhand volleys Nadal has missed in this set.

And of course having no commercials makes such a difference.

The match itself has much to expostulate about. Simply put, this is one of the greatest tennis matches I have seen in fifty years. True, the 2008 final was closer, but Federer was spraying the court for the first two sets; whereas the tennis here is brilliant on both sides throughout.

I hadn't realised that the moment the last ball has bounced twice, someone instantly rushes to the Players' Entrance with a gold-leaf decal and adds the champion's name to the roster by the door, so that he sees it there when he re-enters the building after the award ceremony -- a nice touch.

The two discs include the entire match, the award ceremony, interviews with both finalists, and footage of Björn Borg congratulating Roger afterwards.

The picture and sound are both crystal clear."

"This is a wonderful remembrance of Roger Federer winning the Wimbledon tennis tournament in 2007. It is exciting even though I knew the ending. Ihave watched it several times and will watch it over and over. Thanks for offering it Amazon!!!"
