Best match at US OPEN 2008 - competition starts

Match with most votes from posters will be US OPEN 2008 best match winner. No rules, you can vote for the match you liked the most (by suspense, quality, fav player or whatever criteria suits you). Everyone can change their opinion indefinitely as the tournament progresses(or at most until after the final), but only the last posted match will be counted as their choice. It would be neat if everyone posts their reasons why is certain match best for them.

P.S Although I am sure that there will be much better ones in next days, my choice from the first 2 days: Safin-Spadea - entertaining match, 5-setter, suspense and decent tennis in overall.

If Gasquet had not melt down in the fifth set it would have been my choice too.

Re: Best match at US OPEN 2008 - competition starts

I watched whole Haas match and in my opinion It was far from best. Too much depended from errors, also a ton of serve points. Not so much great rallies though.

My vote goes for Navarro-Gonzalez. That was awesome latinos encounter with full entertaining package - aggressive tennis, many great points, celebration scream battle, a lot emotions during match including Gonzo hardtalk with umpire and some artistic shows where ball is in or out + hot chilian crowd. truly reminds me some of DC matches

Cheering List
Gulbis Paire Wawrinka Fognini Dolgopolov Haas Tipsarevic

This is usually the kind of thread that is started after the OPEN finishes. But hey, this will give people a chance to make up matches that haven't even happened yet.

Re: Best match at US OPEN 2008 - competition starts

Dumb idea to start this at this point in the tournament, but so far it's Blake vs. Young

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.
