Was Federer-Djokovic the best match so far in 2010?

In my opinion, yes. Very exciting match and high level of tennis. I don't think there have been so many great matches so far this year. Isner-Mahut was great, but the game level wasn't good enough. Same with Fognini-Monfils, which I thought was really funny to watch.

No. Not even best match of the tournament. Verdasco-Ferrer was better.

Are you kidding? First set aside, it was absolute muggery. Novak was super clutch at the end of fifth, but only one guy playing good does not make a good match.

I didn't watch Verdasco-Ferrer, and there's lot of other good matches I haven't watched.

I think Federer played a great match, of course not 2nd and 4th set. Djokovic played great all the way. Lots of excitement. The importance of the match is also relevant, which in fact makes this the best of match of the year that I've seen.

5th set was best set this year. well 2nd best behind Isner-Mahut but that's in a different category I guess

Isner Mahut was dramatic but it was all serve..I liked this SF. (Both good game and drama)

It's the best match your average MTF member has the brain cells to remember.

It can't hardly be the best match when the loser deliberately throw the match away.

This errorfest was not even close to average. Tons of UE.

5 setter doesn't mean good. Nadal-Gulbis was very good. In Slam, I would pick Youzhny-Gasquet as the best.

Then what was the best match of year, if that wasn't?

At least the end of the fifth set was some of the best I've ever seen

Yes, I give it the nod over Verdasco-Ferrer because of the stakes and the fact that Nole sleighed his demons. Had he choked, which is what most people expected, and Roger won, then I would say no. But Nole manned up when so many fold.
