The commentators I heard said the match will go down as a memorable AO classic, which will be repeated (video/TV) time and time again for many years to come.
Two top proffesionals, with very different styles played a quality match befitting Grand Slam tennis.
Their personal chemistry and styles created a unique situation, which although seldom witnessed, occurred quite naturally and spontaneously.
> The whole stadium lapped it up, cheering for MORE and MORE.
> TV viewers lapped it up.
> The commentators confirmed it was a remarkable combination of talent and entertainment.
> Sports journalists waxed lyrically about the match in the press.

What a miserable sod this individual is.
