Re: Vote for the best Grand Slam match of the year 2006!

I voted Baghdatis-Nalbandian, but in all honesty I can't say any of these matches will go down as classics like Agassi-Blake and Safin-Federer last year.

Definitely. But since that one was not available, I voted for another match where someone cramped: Hewitt-Gasquet.

I never really watched the Agassi-Blake match properly..just bits and pieces. When it was on live I was half falling asleep and when they replayed it this year I still didnt watch it really. So is it really a classic match? Maybe you had to see the match in its entirety.

Safin


Acasuso ~ Nadal ~ Gasquet ~ Clement ~ Nalbandian ~ Almagro ~Tursunov ~ Gaudio ~ Mathieu ~ Grosjean ~ Roddick

Ljubicic~ Robredo ~ Gonzalez ~ Massu ~ Ancic ~ Ferrer ~ Zabaleta ~ Monaco ~ Del Potro ~ Haas ~ Ferrero ~ Monfils ~ Verdasco ~ Moya ~ Tursunov ~ Chela ~ Serra ~ Lopez ~ Djokovic ~ Tipsarevic ~ Llodra

For me : AO SF - Baghdatis def. Nalbandian 3-6, 5-7, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.
It was magic, above all when rain stopped match just before Marcos serves for the match...

I specified from the 4th rounds, that's why the Andre-Marcos match isn't listed Because otherwise I should have included also the Safin-Nalbandian match, the Nadal-Mathieu match, etc.

I wouldn't go for any of those, to me the best were Baghdatis-Agassi from the US Open and Nadal-Mathieu from the French.

If I had to pick one I'd pick Baghdatis vs Nalbandian.
