“One of my biggest defeats was the 2008 Wimbledon final against Nadal. Some say it’s the greatest match of all time. With all due respect to Rafa, I think this match would have been bigger if I had won (smile). Losing at Wimbledon was tough, but winning it is the most important thing. I’ve played on the biggest courts in the world, but when you have the opportunity to do it in the cathedral of tennis and finish champion, you feel the magnitude of the moment and there’s nothing like it.»
