For a huge portion of us, whenever we think of what the greatest tie-break in tennis history is, the fourth set tie-break of the Wimbledon 2008 mens' singles final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal comes to mind. The conventional reason for deeming the tie break as such is the incredibly intense and story-like qualities to it. You have Rafael Nadal putting the audience on their feet with his reaching of two championship points. He however lost them in spectacular fashion and Roger Federer went on to win the set. Having won a tight tie-break, Federer by theory was supposed to storm the fifth set and take the title but it was to be Nadal's day. The 1980 Wimbledon mens' singles final is eerily similar to the 2008 Wimbledon one, in the sense that they share these same exact dramatic elements. Should the label 'the greatest tie-break in tennis history' not be shared with that 4th tie-break of the Wimbledon 1980 final too?
