Your Favorite Tennis Match-Ups
Are there certain match-ups which you especially look forward to? Two players with an exciting history, who always seem to bring out the best in each other?
These are some of mine:
Andre Agassi vs. Roger Federer (RF leads 8-3)
Should two human beings be allowed to strike the ball this well? Can't they spread the talent around a bit?
Roger Federer vs. Marat Safin (RF leads 7-2)
This match-up is amazing for the same reason as the previous one. Just amazing striking of the ball.
Andre Agassi vs. Marat Safin (tied 3-3)
Scary shot-making, great baseline battles. The margin between these two is generally quite small.
Andre Agassi vs. Andy Roddick (AA leads 5-1)
A great serve against a great return. Although Andre leads the head-to-head comfortably, most of the matches have been very close.
Marat Safin vs. Lleyton Hewitt (MS leads 6-5)
These two have a great history. It has often been Hewitt's superior tactics against Safin's remarkable hitting, although when Safin plays smartly he is hard to handle.
David Nalbandian vs. Roger Federer (DN leads 6-4)
Does anyone else play against Roger so intelligently? David seems to make one wise decision after another, and displays remarkable finesse and precision.
Roger Federer vs. Rafael Nadal (RN leads 2-1)
The rivalry of the moment. Such a wonderful contrast of styles and on-court temperments.

I believe in luck. How else can you explain the success of those you don't like? ---Jean Cocteau
