What rivalries do you miss/enjoy?!

Aura of Moya's message made me ponder this. Anyway

Guga vs. Safin - all of 2000, right
Pete vs. Andre - I actually have to say

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??

Pete vs Andre

Pete vs. Rafter

Rafter vs. Andre

The three always gave good matches


btw, I don't know if many of you know this but the Jan-mike vs. Hewitt or Jan-Mike vs. Mark P. were always great drama always exiting and better yet with Jan-Mike holding a lead in h2h against both players

Mrs. Guga, even before I saw your post I was thinking Guga/Safin. I do miss that match up. Can't wait for Guga to return to peak condition. What I'd really like to see now is Guga/Lleyton. I will not rest until Guga avenges that Florianopolis clay court loss to that rude upstart. That loss was just unacceptable.

I'm Andromeda by the way. My first post. I post on the wta board occasionally.

Kafelnikov-Kuerten.

And perhaps Roddick-Dent.

I miss Lendl/J. McEnroe - They hated each other so much!

I miss Navratilova/Evert - Arguably the greatest rivalry in the history of sports!

What rivalries do I enjoy? There aren't any! Safin/Kuerten has fizzled! And Safin/Hewitt hasn't developed yet. Get it together Marat!

I like the Kournikova/Hingis rivalry! Except it probably doesn't qualify as a rivalry!

Egalite!

I enjoy watching Juan Carlos Ferrero & Guga play. The semis at RG just aren't complete without them.

Rafter/Agassi also had some great matches. I don't really miss any, though. Borg/McEnroe featured two of my all-time favs, tho!

(So this is where you are, Mrs. G. We miss you at the 'Zone!)

Guga vs Safin is the one I miss the most. I said that so many times that I sound like a cry-baby... But it was so wonderful...
Guga vs Norman was also developing into a great matchup

wooden jesus, can i be saved? i spent all my money on a future grave.. ill cut you in on 20% of my future sins..

Andre VS Pete I think is one everyone will remember for a long time.

Hewitt VS Roddick isn't too bad

Hewitt VS Blake I'm dying to see this again

Yes! Guga vs. Safin is the best! C'mon Guga! Get well!! They always bring out the best in each other!
As well as Safin/Sampras and Safin/Hewitt!

Marat....Keep the Balance Baby!
