Rafael Nadal claims Wimbledon men’s singles title, 2008

Designed by London based design studio Accept & Proceed for Planet K2 as part of The Art of Performance Series 1, this infographic translates one of the most legendary moments in sporting history into a beautiful graphic. They've taken the longest men's singles final in Wimbledon history between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer and broken it down into a set of impressive match statistics. The stats have been visually represented by cascading spike graphs.

The first spike graph shows the percentage of successful first serves between each player with Nadal winning 66% and Federer 73%. The final graph shows that Nadal won with just 5 more points than Federer with a total of 209. Several of the smaller graphs are also hidden within the larger graphs.
