Rafael Nadal defeated five-time defending champion Roger Federer in the final, 6-4, 6-4, 6-7(5-7), 6-7(8-10), 9-7 to win the Gentlemen's Singles tennis title at the 2008 Wimbledon Championships.[1] Nadal won his fifth Grand Slam title, and his first outside of the French Open. It was also the first time Federer lost a Grand Slam final outside the French Open. It was the second longest championship match in Wimbledon history with play lasting 4 hours and 48 minutes, and with two rain delays. The event stretched over seven hours ending just before nightfall,[2] and is considered by some to be the greatest match in tennis history.[3][4][5][6]

This was also the last Grand Slam tournament for 2006 Wimbledon Semifinalist and former World No. 4 Jonas Björkman and the last Wimbledon appearance for 2004 Wimbledon Semifinalist and former World No. 7 Mario An?i?.
