Best Match of the Australian Open 2012?

I know it may be a few weeks late. Don't care. Australian Open in 10times more important than Davis Cup and that 250 in poland or wherever. I thinking about getting some AO dvds. Cant decide which matches i want. Ones where i was front row would be swell. Also curious to see what matches you guys thought were the best.

My pick is Dolgopolv vs Tomic. I was front row for this. Money well spent, not that it matters for me. 5 sets. Just a thriller. Drama and great shot making. Add a bit of aussie flavor and you have a killer match.

Re: Best Match of the Australian Open 2012?

I was there too but not front row. I went to the AO to watch Fed and that was the only Fed match I watched so it has special significance for me

How did you get your front row ticket btw?

Re: Best Match of the Australian Open 2012?

Well i was front row because I'm filthy rich and have many contacts around the world. The only Federer matches i watched was this one and the Karlovic match. Had tickets to the beck game on Hisense (front row) but the pussy pulled out. Probably because of fear.

Really? Can I be your friend? I spent a bomb on my trip and didn't even get front row seats. Yeah, Beck is the biggest gimp of all time. I bought an additional ticket for that match.

No i don't make friends with people over the internet. The only friends i have, have lots of money like me and are in very high places. I only make friends with people who are on my level on the social ladder. I.e the top.

The Djokovic vs Nadal match was outstanding. I would know. I was courtside. Only finals match i went to.

You sound poor. True ballers like me have the top players flown in on a daily basis to play best-of-seven set matches in my backyard. Get on my level brawh.

How do you know I'm not at the top of the social ladder in my country?

Petzschner vs. Rosol

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

As for the "best one", clearly it was the final.
