The BEST single match of ALL TIME

YES, you can only choose one, come on guys, forget the drama and everything around the match just pure tennis on the court.

Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal Rome Masters 2006

I am a huge Federer fan and although he lost, I still appreciate the high quality tennis shown from both men. It was much better tennis than they showed in their Wimbledon 2008 final.

For the 2006 Rome match you could try http://www.rogerfedererpoints.com/matches.html. I don't know what the quality is like though.

Re: The BEST single match of ALL TIME

2009 AO SF: Nadal - Verdasco

The athleticism on display that day was gut-reckoning. Love or hate Nadal, think he's supremely talented or utterly talent-less, you can't deny the man's a phenomenal athlete. I had never seen such rallying -- it was as if they were immune to inertia.

Re: The BEST single match of ALL TIME

^ i liked rafa and nando 2009 AO SF as well, 5 hours 14 minutes of great action, too bad nando had to end it with a DF.

for some reason, i also liked rafa and nole 2009 madrid SF, even though that match took so much out of both of them for a while, nole battling for that first win over rafa on clay, rafa saving match points to prevail in front of his home crowd, i thought it was the best match they have ever played against each other.

NOLE - RAFA - ROGER - DELPO - MUZZA - TSONGA

Also supporting: Rusty, Pics, Nalby, Nando, Baggy, Kei, Isner, Blake, Kolya, Berdych, Richie, Soderling, Gil

Ana - Wozzy - Vika - Kimmy - Makiri

AGASSI,RAFTER,SAFIN

Re: The BEST single match of ALL TIME

2006 Rome final, yes. Outstanding tennis from both.
But of course I'm biased towards the players involved so it's hard for me not to choose this one as my personal fav match.

Sent you a pm. If anyone else wants the full match, just shout

Re: The BEST single match of ALL TIME

I don't know about all time, but out of the matches I've seen I'll plump for the Rome 2006 final.
