These are the ones that come to mind. I'm sure there are some I'm missing
Probably there are lots that I'm missing. In no particular order.

Nadal/Coria Rome
Nadal/Federer Roland Garros
Nadal/Ljubicic Madrid
Blake/Agassi US Open
Roddick's fifty minute demoliton of Hrbaty in Paris.
Berdych/Ljubicic final Paris

Re: Best Matches 2005

blake/agassi was UNREAL to see in person

gotta love matches that go on well past 1:00 am, and NO ONE leaves until the very end.

Bet match of 2005 : Sargsian def. Davydenko 6-1 1-0 what a big retirement gift

Re: Best Matches 2005

Nadal/Federer RG Semi Final was poor. Neither player played anywhere near their best.

In terms of sheer quality and excitement, Agassi/Blake was the match of the year by quite some distance.

For me it would be:

AO - Safin def Federer
IW - Hewitt def Roddick
MI - Federer def Nadal
MC - Gasquet def Federer
RO - Nadal def Coria
MO - Nadal def Agassi
US - Agassi def Blake

Re: Best Matches 2005

There were plenty of good matches this year, but I will still say that Federer/Safin AO SF was the match of the year.
