The Definition of a Five-Set Thriller!
Shore DJ | Oceanport, New Jersey United States | 08/13/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In response to another reviewer, these discs are indeed presented in the 16:9 widescreen format, with coverage by the BBC. This was indeed the match that everyone wanted, and tennis' version of Ali & Frazier or Affirmed & Alydar left it all out on the court in this epic match, taking the fans on an incredible ride. Were it not for the rain breaks, the fans would have been drained as well! Many interesting story lines, with Federer going for his sixth straight Wimbledon title, Nadal trying to get his first title, coming off his 3-set victory over Roger at the French Open. You may know the result, but this match is worth repeat viewing."

"Dude, have you actually looked at this DVD? It's Widescreen; your criticism is unwarranted. If you have a bee in your bonnet about this 1.33 issue, at least make sure it's justified."
I have to agree --- DVD1 is of poor quality, DVD2 is much be

"This may sound weird and while it is a fantastic match, the picture quality of DVD 1 is quite poor considering it is a 2008 recording, though oddly enough DVD 2 which is the fifth set is of much better quality. I have purchased a lot of matches from Kultur (including the 2007 Final between them) all of which have been high quality, but quite honestly i was dissapointed and surprised by the overall recording quality of this match. I agree with one of the other reviewers, rent this, do not buy it."

"I finally had enough time this weekend and was looking forward to seeing the BBC's take on this greatest of matches. Yikes, I was shocked at the poor picture quality of the first dvd. Yes, the second which is the last set and maybe two minutes of extras is better. The dvds I recorded from the original broadcast were superior, and though I am no John McEnroe fan, his commentary is a step above the staid British Tim Henman. The cheesy reading of the Kipling's poem, the one minute or so interview with Nadal, not really an interview-just a statement of how happy he was and how much the title meant to him, the omission of an interview with Federer, and lack of cues (one for every three games would have been great!!!) make this worse than getting wrong footed by a ten year old junior. Three stars for the match. If you don't have it and want it, then I guess this is the way to go, but the production just leaves one wondering why Kultur, the video company, couldn't have done justice to a match of this quality and magnitude."
