What's your favourite player's peak match or best tennis you've seen?

USO 2009 R16 vs Nadal. Gael played out of his mind for two sets hitting routine 110-120 mph forehands just a thing of beauty. Also it was a night match on Ashe which made it even better.

Discuss and describe why you picked that specific match.



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

Pretty pathetic that a top player's peak match is one that he loses in 4 sets..

Tell me about it . Gael does have some great three-set performances. Doha 2009,2012 vs Rafa. Paris 2010 vs Murray and Federer. RG 2008,2011 Ferrer were his all-time best performances in GS but his level of play was higher in the USO match.

Re: What's your favorite player's peak match?

Not sure, Rafa had a lot of great matches where he played extremely good over his career.
I would call 2 when I liked his attitude and tactics the most:

2007 Indian Wells final vs Djokovic
2010 US Open final vs Djokovic

And in terms of Pim-Pim Johansson, probably the famous 2004 US Open QF vs Roddick

You picked two great matches with Pim-Pim's great performance shame he couldnt beat Hewitt in the next round and Rafa was on an insane level against Novak in that GS Final.

Yeah, Pim-Pim was clearly tired in that match, plus didn't really bring his heart to it, cause they were very close back then (not sure about now ).
And attacking Rafa during those 2 matches was just perfect to watch, I hate when he goes back to pushing when game-plan doesn't work BH in those games was

Re: What's your favorite player's peak match?

Rafa and Roger played so many great matches that it would be hard to choose just one.

For Juan Carlos Ferrero, I would say it was his 2000 Davis Cup victory.

Re: What's your favorite player's peak match?

I don't have a particular favourite player.

I did enjoy Olderer handing a beatdown on Duck in AO'07 SF.
I also liked Tsonga's demolition of Rafa in AO'08 SF.
del Potro's slaughterhouse in the US'09 SF was notable.
Rafa against Nole in US'10 Final was pretty awesome as well.

Re: What's your favorite player's peak match?

Nalbandian would be a good one. You could basically pick any indoor match from about 2/3 seasons ago

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V
