That is the only way to describe the Olympic tennis final! Points won and lost continually by both players.
Andy Murray eventually won and is now double Olympic Champion, the only tennis player to do so and also, he has done it consecutively, a double piece of history.
John Inverdale has been slammed in the press for mentioning this unique win, but he is quite correct. Yes the Williams sisters have won 4 gold medals but only one gold in singles, the rest were in doubles!
