Favorite '08 AO Moment?

My favorite moment is definitely the look on Tipsy's face after he clinched the first set against Federer with that running cross-court forehand. He did the "vight" hand signal and just looked mad clever--like an evil genius. It must be the glasses. Here's the youtube clip in case you missed it (20 seconds in):

Re: Favorite '08 AO Moment?

ExFed-Nole Semis, second set: ExFed placing a cross-court drop, but Nole running for his life and placing the ball square on the line behind ExFed's back, thus clinching a break and 3-1 lead in the set.

(Unfortunately, I didn't watch Tsonga-Murray, I think I saw just a part of that unbelievable point where Tsonga returned EVERYTHING extraterrestrially while Murray tried with all his might, only to be passed at the end.)

Re: Favorite '08 AO Moment?

Tsonga vs Nadal. There was absolutely NOTHING Nadal could do, especially in the third set. As much as he tried to fight back, like he always does, Tsonga had all the answers.

Safins 3rd and 4th set against Baghdatis. Unreal tennis.

Baghdatis hugging Hewitt at 4 AM after their match... The end of the longest day of tennis.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Tipsarevic winning that first set was good.
Baghdatis laughing and smiling during a nailbiter vs Hewitt.
Tsonga winning the first set in the final with two out of this world winners.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Easily Kohlschreiber vs. Roddick match.

Still can't believe Kohli didn't have one shot on the Kia Hot Shots.

Re: Favorite '08 AO Moment?

I have favourite moments at the AO, involving people like Peta/Molina, picking on Marach [to his face of course], Crazy Austrian, Sane Austrian journalist...but as for actual tennis? For me the Hewitt-Djokovic match was beautiful for so many reasons. My first time being in RLA so it was also special. This might be a bit weak, but the shot of Tsongas coach, tears in his eyes, after he knocked out Nadal. That's right up there for me.

Re: Favorite '08 AO Moment?

It hurt to see Tsonga beat Nadal so soundly, but I had to admire the way Tsonga celebrated the end of each set with confident nods of the end. It removed any doubt for me--a star had arrived.

Another good one.


To be honest, my favorite moment has got to be the very end of it

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

I think I would agree with you on that one. That middle Saturday was really impressive. Also of course, Tsonga beating Nadal, and Nole winning the final

Supporting Djoković, Tipsarević, Soderling, Tursunov, Youzhny, Cilić and quite a few more

I agree , and it was a pity that he wasn't be able to finish the work he had started, but anyway, it was a fantastic performance by Janko!
