Question Choose the best match of 2008

I put some matches that IMHO are overrated (Wimby final) or disgusting (Simon-Nadal in Madrid) but in some way i think they are important and a lot of people found them remarkable
My favourite is the Kohlschreiber - Roddick clash in AO. More than 100 winners each player, and the best backhand i've seen the whole season (Kohls)

I didn't put several matches i enjoyed more than some of the above (like Santoro - Armitraj in Newport, or Llodra - Haase in Rotterdam), because i tried to be objetive and choose relevant matches that the majority have seen

Re: Choose the best match of 2008

How was the US Open Federer-Murray match a good match? And the Simon-Nadal match is debatable.

Well, USO i think it was a lesson of attacking tennis by Federer. Half volleys, slices, FH.. great match
Simon - Nadal was horrible for me, boring match, but a lot of people here said it was one of the best matches of the year. Nadal took his own medicine.

Re: Choose the best match of 2008

Easily Wimbedon final, the tension, the impressive clutchplay by both player. Even I didn't appreciate the outcome I have to vouch for it as the best match of 2008. Almost beats my all-time favourite match, Wimbledon 2001 4R Sampras-Federer.

Roger Federer. Legend.

Re: Choose the best match of 2008

In terms of drama and importance its Wimbledone final obviously,but in terms of pure tennis quality it's Nadal-Djokovic at Hamburg,just amazing match great display from both players.
