The best tennis match in recent memory

I thought Safin and Federer semi final at Ausi open this year was the best match I've witnessed in recent memory. Someone mentioned that Safin won by playing high intensity tennis for 5 sets. I think that really hit the point. It was a match filled with intensity from beginning to the end. And how fitting that Roger fell on the last point that finally defeated him. Both players deserved a lot of money for that match.

Re: The best tennis match in recent memory

the coria nadal match in --was it Roma?-- was also good

But marat def. Roge was certainly fantastique, high quality from both sides, great momentum shifts, drama, etc.

Re: The best tennis match in recent memory

Marat vs Roger was by far the highest standard of what we've seen in last few years.. It was Federer playing someone who played at Federer's level. Might not see anything like that again soon..

Re: The best tennis match in recent memory

I haven't watched Coria/Nadal final in Rome. Can anyone give a short review of the match?

Nothing beats Ivanisevic-Rafter 2001 wimbledon final, but of this year I would say Fed-Saf in Aus open,

Hi all, i'm peter and i'm a huge fan of Pat Rafter

Re: The best tennis match in recent memory

How about the one between Al-Ennui (or something along those lines) and The Cyclops at 2003 AO QF?

Hilarious if not high-quality per se.

Agassi Akbar!

Re: The best tennis match in recent memory

The Nadal vs Coria match in Rome.

Two great clay court players in one very tough and very long match.
