Re: Which is your favorite Australian Open final for the last 10 years?

2010, because of the third set. Generally Aussie Open finals are weaker than the finals in the other Grand Slams

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Re: Which is your favorite Australian Open final for the last 10 years?

This year`s final i would put at the same level as the Federer-Gonzalez final.Gonzo had his chances was a break up in first set but still lost in straight sets.Last year was great but i also enjoyed when Safin beat Hewitt.

It's funny how one sided alot of those finals are, in terms of straight set victories.

Re: Which is your favorite Australian Open final for the last 10 years?

Tojo def. Safin, just for sheer unpredictability. Safin, with the Safinettes in his box, had come to be crowned. He looked like he had partied the previous night also!

He really learned the hard way. I felt sorry for him, but was so happy to see a shocker. Sort of like Gaudio def. Coria

07 or 09.

Some of the best matches of the decade have been AO SF's, though.

Re: Which is your favorite Australian Open final for the last 10 years?

2009 is my pick as well. Some really great points and Nadal winning his OA after a superb tournament.

Re: Which is your favorite Australian Open final for the last 10 years?

Some voter mugs here seem to prefer 5 sets of shitty tennis to 3 good sets. Favorite that I saw live was probably '07. Both guys played aggressive, some amazing FHs throughout the match, Fed in his most well-rounded form.
