Your Fave Match of Aus Open?

So far what is your favourite match of the Australian open? You can update your decision when a new match is played which you like. I found the duel between Baghdatis and Stepanek very interesting but I think my fave comes from the match between Gaston and Santoro. If Gaston had won the match it would've been perfect but you have to say Santoro did well. Bravo gentlemen. The match also had an absolutely incredible point.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

The Hewitt/Chela match. I loved how in the last two sets, the camera kept panning to Bec, and she had the "deer in the headlights" look the whole time.

I missed that one unfortunately. One of the few matches I haven't seen any of at all.

Re: Your Fave Match of Aus Open?

Maybe a fave all time AO match would have been the ideal topic.

Malisse-Thomas yes, Malisse's temperament cost him the match.

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

Re: Your Fave Match of Aus Open?

hewitt-chela. hewitt was a mess, but chela was on fire, and the tension was palpable.

Close second is santoro-gaudio, just because santoro is such a genius with a racket. Why is his ranking so low? Is he just overwhelmed by the baseline sluggers?

Team Rafa or Team Roger? Team Nole or Team Berdych? Declare Yourself Now!

Re: Your Fave Match of Aus Open?

Hingis-Zvonareva.. oh wait this is MTF!

hmm.. Chela-Hewitt. I respect Hewitt but I do love to see him fall on his face

Please see here if interested in downloading tennis matches.

Contrary to popular belief, I am not a Rafa hater. I am, however, a RAFATARD hater and therefore take endless delight in each Rafa loss as it allows me to sock it hard to his tards. Do try and understand the difference (TARDS)! Don't get me started on Choke-ovic though. Him I do despise. And his TARDS are the lowest of the low .

Re: Your Fave Match of Aus Open?

In the US they are only showing us Roddick, Serena, Davenport, Sharapova, Hingis for the most part. Of those shown I would say I liked watching Hingis the most but her matches were one sided. I would have liked to see the Gaudio v. Santoro match but they didn't show that.

It won't be until the 2nd week that we probably get to see good matches. I will be looking forward to seeing Hingis v. Cjlisters if that happens.

Roger Forever !
