Question Best Grand Slam match of the year?

From the stuff we will gather here i will make a poll out of it.
Mine are:
Corretja/Clement RG
Haas/Federer Aus
Haas/Safin Aus
Safin/Kiefer US
Safin/Sampras Aus
Sampras/Escude Aus
Pavel/Corretja RG
Philipousiss/Kraijicek Wim
Chela/Roddick US
Blake/Hewitt US
Schalken/Gonzales US
Sampras/Haas US
Rusedski/Sampras US

Im sure there are more though. Who dared saying that ATP is boring??

Tennis, Ergo Sum.

Oh, and though I didn't see it personally, the Ferrero-Gaudio match at RG I remember as being close.

Okay I didn't actually see it, but I *did* see highlights of Ferrero-Agassi at Roland Garros and would include it - then again that might just be my own personal bias.

Tennishack - that match with Gaudio was hella weird! Ferrero had set points in every single set! Then Gaudio super choked in the last set.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Was Johanson/Novak at Oz not good? Two guys in the semis of a slam who not many would have picked to be there - who may or may not get that opportunity again - if memory serves it went 5 sets?

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

I only saw the U.S. Open men's matches, so I can't comment on the whole year...
The Schalken/Gonzalez match at the Open was great. So was Corretja/Roddick (even if Alex lost).
