As for that 5th set... depends on how much of a Fedtard you are.
If Nadull won it would probably the best final you have ever seen. Stfu.

I don't like Nadal.

I'm happy for you, but I wasn't talking to you.

Re: Which AO final was better

To be honest USO 2011 final was much higher quality than AO 2012.

I don't like Nadal.

Re: Which AO final was better

2012- up and down momentum from both players. Each time you would think the other one is already out but then momentum shift here and there until the very last point in the fift set.

Unloike 2009, by mid 5th set, you already know who is winning, not much drama/suspense, just boring tennis.

Re: Which AO final was better

The first four sets of the 2009 final >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> that slugfest in 2012

2009 semi between Nadal and Verdasco was overall better than both, other than that last game from Fernando

aparenty, the 2009 finals was not finished in the fourth set.

A movie can't win an Oscar by just having a good start.

Re: Which AO final was better

good thread. 09 was better pure tennis for sure cause of the matchup, while this year players were not at their highest level - though should be said nadal kind of always looks to be playing at a lower level when playing new djokovic (also cause of the matchup). still novak wasnt at wimbledon level or madrid/rome level for sure.

what bugs me about 09 is that by that time nadal was so much over fed you kind of felt that when it came to the tightness, fed was sure to wilt, there was no real uncertainty in the outcome, esp no with fit nadal on the other side of the net. in the end it felt like a ceremony, a funeral of a champ. everybody kind of knew it, and he knew it so he cried. that was lame. this year there was none of that, you really could not tell anything in that final set. the guts from both guys was insane, and you could feel it.

just two different matches, Id say equally epic.

sure, its all subjective.

reliability...
