Did you enjoy the AO 2012 men's final? Why or why not.

Surprised to be reading how so many people didn't enjoy the final for various reasons.

Simple question: Did YOU enjoy the final or not?

Too slow rallies... I was watching today Davydenko and Davydenko generated easily much more power than Djokovic what a shame ...

I would watch any day the epic 2005 AO semifinal between Safin and Federer. But this one, i would only watch from the 4th set.

It´s like people saying the US Open final was great, when i fact, it really only got a really good set. The third one. The rest is just pushing, moonballing, etc..

Pretty boring.

It was good, but I think it's already quite overrated from the comments i've read on this forum. I mean last set and a half was great but the rest was pretty boring I say.

Thought it was great. Loved the momentum swings, the passion (particularly from Nadal in the 4th set) and it was good tennis. I love long rallies, I love watching them fight it out in long matches.

Nadal-Berdych was the best match in terms of quality from start to finish.



Stronga,Monfils,DelPo,Nalbandian,Berdych,Gulbis,Ha as and Djokovic are the players I support the most.

How long has it been since you watched this match IN ITS ENTIRETY? Don't get me wrong. Its a great match (I own a copy and watch it once a year). But you might be surprised to see that it wasn't non-stop great tennis. Which really isn't surprising. Its a tennis match played by real people.

Generally no. The ending was interesting in a WTA kind of way with the momentum constantly going back and forth. But I wasn't enjoying the tennis itself, they play too slowly, and the rallies were too long and monotonous.

It was dramatic, but the rallies were too long and it got boring. Also, since both players are time wasters between points, it took forever. They need to speed the courts up!

I found it pretty harrowing to be honest.

The only ones who didn't like this final are Nadaltards or Nole haters

Blah,blah,blah. Novak played 2 match in 2011 against Davy and won 3-0 and 2-0. But wait, maybe, your Grigor is better then Novak,isn it? I mean,He got power

it is normal Novak to beat easily Davydenko ... nothing unusual ...
I'm just saying that Davydenko is so lightweight and still was capable of hitting far more powerful groundstrokes than Djokovic
And you know it yourself that Djokovic was playing far more defensive than 2011 Davy against him ..... that means something for this mug slow-ass court era

Lol'd. Everything besides asslicking Nadal or Nole are haters.

I didn't like it tbh. Pushing, pushing and pushing, both players not willing to produce decent pace consistently and just getting the ball deep into other side of the net.
