I remember that so well. I've got the DVD of the match. The thing I remember so well was that the crowd was so loud, it being a Monday final. It was lovely to see Goran get his major at last, although I often wonder what might have happened if Tim had won that semi.
Me too - it just felt like that it was Tim's time, though Pat Rafter would've been a tough opponent anyway. I was gutted when Tim lost that semi - I was on holiday at the time, watching from the apartment. Wish the rain hadn't come at the wrong time! I wonder if things would have played out differently today, with the roof on?
But at the same time, I couldn't help but be happy for Goran that he finally won Wimbledon after being in finals before. Loved the loud crowd too. And him winning Wimbledon as a wildcard was a fairytale ending.
