Federer-Safin.

Even if they played that tiebreak alone I would have voted for this match. The first set wasn't good, mainly because Safin blew the start, but the second set way very good. Basically that set alone is what get's my vote. I would have watched it rather any other match.

Re: The best match of the Masters? Vote now!

YES The semifinal Marat Safin-Roger Federer takes it all.

It is for me the BEST match I saw this year, although my favourite Marat Safin lost.

Both players had great fighting spirit and they played on the highest level of tennis. In this match tennis was no longer a simply match, it was art. I'm bowing to those two great players.

Thank you Marat and thank you Roger for that great match. No one of you was a loser in this match but you were both winner, champions in fair play and friendship.

There were no adversors on the court, but there were two friends like these two pictures show :

Btw. the match in which moya took a set off Feder can also be included in the poll. Not that too many people will vote for it... I haven't seen it, but I'm somehow convinced that Safin gave a harder time to Fed. And fans were treated by better tennis.

I hope so!
This tiebreak was 26 minutes and 38 seconds long. This 20:18 had 38 games, 6 set points of Marat Safin and 7 match points of Roger Federer.

Since the tiebreak was intoduced there were only two other matches with 38 points: In Wimbledon 1973 the Indian Premjit Lall beat Björn Borg from Sweden with 6:3 6:4 9:8 (20:18) and in the US Open 1993 the Croatian Goran Ivanisevic won over the Canadian Daniel Nestor 6:4 7:6 (7:5) and 7:6 (20:18), both matches were in a first round!
