Re: Your Favorite Major (overall) of 2005
AO provided the best match of the year (Safin def. Federer), but the USO was the best slam of the year.
Thank god the women laid a colossal egg this year for it thrust the men into the spotlight for a change, and did they ever deliver. #4 and #2 got knocked out in 1R and 3R, respectively. Guys ranked around or outside the Top 100 (Blake-QF and Ginepri-SF) only several weeks prior, battle through one 5 setter after another. In fact, the two weeks were filled with 5 set matches.
Djorkovic and Gasquet impressed. And the old man made it through to the final to meet Federer. Agassi-Federer in the USO final...when viewed from it's entirety, as opposed to one match, the USO was hard to top.
