My Peterio Awards (Part Thirteen: Best Individual Sports Game)


The Men's Wimbledon Finals had it all- rollercoaster momentum, history on the line, a long heated rivalry and of course, plays after plays of awes and wonderment. As a long time Roger Federer fan, seeing his inevitable defeat to Rafael Nadal was extra excruciating because there were many moments during the marathon match you thought the 5-time defending champion was going to muster just enough to limp his way through it. However, it was not meant to be as the tennis world witness an unofficial changing of the guard... until Federer won the US Open later and all is right with the world once more.

Other Notable Nominees: ALCS Game 7 (baseball), Men's 4x100m freestyle (Olympic swimming), Men's 100m Butterfly (Olympic swimming) & Superbowl XLII (football)
