ok. define the best match ever. I've seen so many good tennis matches. I can't really decide which one was the best... too many good matches. It was a great match IMHO, I had a great time. I mean, I don't get it. what do you guys want? people on this board are ...
I'm going to open a new thread 'what is the best match ever, let's talk
This year's AO final was indeed, IMO, a great match. However, I would not say it was the greatest ever. As you state, there have been so many great matches, it is impossible to pick just one. Today's game, with advanced equipment and physical training, is totally different from the Lave era. The other day I was watching a Laver-Rosewall match clips. In about 10 minutes there was more volleying, and overheads than in the nearly 6 hours of the AO final. They too ran each other aroud the court, back and forth, side to side. The net play, by both, was great. Their 72 WCT final was similiar to the match I saw on You Tube. That match was over 3 hours, of all-court exhausting tennis. It probably would be impossible today to play that sort of tennis, but both styles are to be enjoyed and reconized as great tennis.
