Re: Top 5 Matches of 2008

1. Tsonga defeat Nadal at AO
2. Kolschreiber defeat Roddick at AO
3. Murray defeat Gasquet at US Open
4. Murray defeat Nadal at US Open
5. Nadal defeat Moya in Chennai

Definitely none from this year's French Open; the most boring slam in recent memory.

Not the greatest year of tennis for sure, but then how can it be when the game's best surface has been reduced to an utter joke?

Re: Top 5 Matches of 2008

US Open and Wimbledon are commonly confused. It's not like they look any different, play differently, are on at a different time, have different commentators, or have the players wearing different clothes.

Labadze - Berrer - Junqueira

Re: Top 5 Matches of 2008

Anderson defeating Djokovic is probably worth of mentioning.
However on a serious note:

1. Nadal def Federer in Wimbledon
2. Tsonga def. Nadal in AO
3. Davydenko def. Nadal at Miami
4. Ancic def. Ferrer at Wimbledon
5. Fish def. Federer at Indian Wells
