Smile Favourite Moments/Memories Of The US Open 2001

Seeing as the 2002 US Open is coming up, I though it would be nice to reflect on the high points and favourite mems from Last Year's Open.

Ok I will start with mine:

1. Agassi Vs Sampras-4th Round: To me this is one of the greatest matches I have ever seen. Rarely in a match do you get 4 sets of total pure quality and this is what I think we got. To go through 4 Tie-Break Sets like that was amazing and the rallies were awesome. It was kinda a shame that Agassi faltered in the 4th set tie-break but regardless how often do you see a US Open Crowd giving a standing ovation at the end of a third set of tennis! Two legends at their best and you could see how much it meant to Sampras at the end of his match.

2.Roddick Vs Hewitt-Quarter Final: This match was just as exciting as the 1st that I picked. The battle of the new balls There were some classic winners and points from both with both putting their bodies on the line(Roddick more so ) To win. Again the crowd atmosphere was great. It had everything including controversy at the end. (Though it was the right result! )

3. Kuerten Vs Mirnyi-1st Round: I don't really watch that many of Guga's matches but this was a real spectacle his fight back from 2 sets to love down from being totally down and out in the match was fantastic. And I was pleased that the crowd got to see Guga at his best as he is not that weel known in america. I think in that match the american crowd gained a whole heap of respect for Guga. though I had to feel for Mirnyi coz really he should've won. But to see Guga's mum jumping out of her seat at every point was a picture

All of these matches were night matches so IMO the night matches seem to have a better atmosphere in General and the crowd get into it more.

And there is also a small detail of Hewitt winning that pleased me but I won't rub it in

So those were my fave moments of last year , what are yours?

Cilla I agree with all your highlights. Also Rafter/Sampras Round of 16's was very high quality as well

Angele...I loved their kiss as well. I wonder what they got up to after it Probably even naughtier than what they did in the Big Brother house. Lol

I was quite keen on Roddicks meltdown.

That was the true highlight for me.



Okay, so I didn't really get to see the US open, because I didnt' have a TV in res yet, but hey - it sounded funny

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Roddick losing.

No offense to his fans.

But was it necessary to have his matches on Center Court every night? What did he do to deserve it?

I hope Lleyton beats him again. Or one of the Thomas Swedes. They are my favs.


We found a new place to live where we're taught to grow strong
And strongly sensitive, it always sets the scenery
Colors leave only beauty, words and wine amongst the greenery
See how it is


good luck: thomas enqvist and thomas johansson
