Bird vs Magic beginning with Indiana State/Michigan State in 1979...however since I wasnt born when that rivalry began, in my lifetime it'd probably have to be Federer-Nadal. Sampras-Agassi was pretty great too. since we're talking individual rivalries. How about auto racing? Formula 1 for instance...Mika Hakkinen vs Michael Schumacher from 1998-2001..neither wanted to give an inch...and then when either of them made the smallest fraction of an error...the other ALWAYS seized the opportunity to pass. Watch the 2000 Belgian Grand Prix..probably on youtube or someplace...for the perfect example of this.

Ted Williams vs Joe DiMaggio 1941 season. Williams finished the season with a .406 batting average, while DiMaggio had a 56-game hitting streak. Williams remains the last player to finish the season hitting over .400, while DiMaggio’s 56-game streak is still the MLB record.
