Which slam has/had the best semifinalists in the last years?

I definitely think we have in Aus Open 2004 the best possible semifinals! Marat-Agassi is already done, but WHOA what a great match! And the next one features 2 other incredibly great players: Rogi and JC!!!

What do you think (in the last 10 GS, including 2004 Aus))? 2004 Aus Open wins my vote hands down!!!

Sampras, Courier, Agassi, Becker

Hispanica, I was talking about the semifinalists, not the matches! This year we have 3 of the 4 top players, so that's great!!!

Re: Which slam has/had the best semifinalists in the last years?

WyverN, you're just a walking encyclopedia of tennis knowledge, aren't you? Since 1995 huh? Wow. Guess this means we're in a whole new golden age of tennis. Kewl.

And bunk, LOL! I turned you on to 2001 USO didn't I?

I voted for 2003 USO but 2004 AO is shaping up to be very surprising and exciting, too. Can't wait to see what we're in for during the next three slams.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Probably this year's AO, unless the Ferrero/Federer match is a total blowout.

LOL guess so.... I just thought that was an impressive list from USO 2001, with the mix of young and old and talent... yeah. lol

I don't know that I see the next three slams being as exciting as this one, if for no other reason than the other 3 surfaces tend to favor some players over others moreso than Rebound Ace, but hopefully!

2004 Australian Open for sure. I'm so impressed with how it's turned out.

2003 US Open was impressive too.

2001 US Open would've been in my top 2 if it weren't for the Hewitt/Kafelnikov cakewalk.
