Best quality/drama match of the 2010 AO?

Personally none of the matches had both, but Tsonga-Almagro could probably be nominated for the best drama match and Murray-Nadal for quality.

PS. I'm probably missing some other ones as I have not watched all televised ones.

Thoughts?

Murray - Nadal for sustained quality. I suppose the injury & subsequent retirement could be classed as drama. Other matches had quality in small spells, but nothing like the afore mentioned matchup.

I loved the Cilic-Delpo match.

Djokovic - Tsonga very odd, but with a lot of drama and BAD TENNIS

I don't know that there's any instant classics this year.

Del Potro-Blake, Del Potro-Cilic and Gasquet-Youzhny were all good value though

Youzhny-Hajek, then Tsonga-Almagro

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Agree with Hajek and great to see him winning matches at slams after the health problems he's had.

Re: Best quality/drama match of the 2010 AO?

Youzhny V Hajek? That match was poor Youzhny just kept the ball in.

Youzhny V Gasquet was match of the tournament for me. I have the final 3 sets in my signature below if someone wants to watch it.

Safin - Agassi - Kafelnikov - Kuerten -Soderling - Davydenko - Santoro -Edberg - Novak - Nalbandian - Ivanisevic
You dealin' with a few true villains
Federer - Wawrinka - Nishikori - Del Potro - Mayer - Rublev - Youzhny - Khachanov - Andrey Kuznetsov- Safiullin - Karatsev

Re: Best quality/drama match of the 2010 AO?

For me Tsonga vs Almagro was the best but it could be argued that the match with the most drama came on the womens side, Williams vs Azarenka was drama personified.
