"Epic closure, so close, such huge numbers of minutes. Definitely, I mean, sure there's likenesses [between this and 2008]. I'm the washout the multiple times, with the goal that's the main closeness I see."
The inconceivable fifth set kept going over two hours - you could have fitted in two of Saturday's ladies' singles finals in the season of that set alone.
