Re: The wins that made you really happy!

here are a couple:
(there are a lot to choose from, lol)

Agassi def. Hewitt, USO2002 semi

Hewitt seemed to have Agassi's number prior to this, and I was not sure Agassi would be able to pull this one out. So many great shots and changes of momentum in this match between the two greatest returners. When Agassi took charge in the fourth and was serving to force another Agassi/Sampras final (who would have thought?), the crowd was going insane.

Agassi def. Sampras Australian Open 2000 semi
Similar situation. Sampras had been dominating Agassi. the match was a really tough five-setter with a brilliant fourth set tiebreak. This made him the first man since Laver to reach 4 consecutive slam finals.

Safin def. Roddick-Australian Open 2004

I suck at TT so there's no reason to brag with my 1st round exits :retard:

Re: The wins that made you really happy!

Ferrero df Guga in Rome 2001 is perhaps my favourite match ever. Ferrero wasn't half the player that he is now, but it was still amazing to watch. I remember it fondly, especially ever time I hear somebody say that Ferrero couldn't touch Guga when Guga was in his prime and is just "lucky" that Guga got injured.

Anyways, Ferrero over Hewitt in the Davis Cup finals in 2000 was also awesome. It was a close match and all, but Ferrero was never losing it. The crowd made it very exciting and all that. I have watched it several times.

Ferrero beating Gonzo last year at RG was big, because really, that title was his after that.

Coria df Agassi at Roland Garros last year is my favourite Coria match to date, and likely his too.

Ferrero, the clay courter, beating Hewitt and Agassi back to back at the USO was pretty special too.

Robredo beating Hewitt after being so out of the match twice... hilarious stuff. And no, this has nothign to do with disliking Hewitt.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: The wins that made you really happy!

Nobody is mentioning women, but I'll do it anyways. Watching Henin win RG and Australia were amazing for me. RG was great because it was her first, and she had to beat a player that she had really struggled with in the past. Australia was amazing because she had everything working against her, but pulled it off.

RG2003 is my favourite slam ever. It will be hard to top it in my books.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Re: The wins that made you really happy!

Henman's two wins against Roddick last year (and no, not just because he beat Roddick - although in hindsight, when you consider the amazing run of wins he had after losing to Henman in D.C. that was a thankful respite). I remember thinking Henman had no chance considering how well Roddick was playing, went out for the night and came back to see the Teletext headline "Henman battles back to beat Roddick" and couldn't believe it. When I found out he'd saved a matchpoint, that was even better. And the win in Paris was also big because I knew, given the other semifinalists, that it was effectively Henman's final and his first real chance to win a TMS.

Schalken's back to back wins over Kuerten and Gonzalez I've mentioned before, but they were certainly very special and extra pleasing because his game actually caused them problems, rather than them just losing the match because of errors.

Federer's Wimbledon semi against Roddick was fantastic just because he made it so easy on the nerves after that tight first set. In a way though, I was more happy with the win over Lopez in the fourth round. Bear in mind that Federer hadn't reached a Slam QF in exactly two years, and when I saw him getting treatment early on for his back I thought how unfair it would be if he lost in the round of 16 again solely because of an injury. Lopez had lots of chances to win that match, but Federer scraped through winning the important points.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: The wins that made you really happy!

Even though this day has not come yet (might come soon though ), I will be really happy when Roger finally beats Tim in a complete match.

Hi there, new poster here

The match that made me really jump all over was...

Rosset def. Arese, 1992 Olympics final!

Olympics isn't really considered in tennis but still that match was fantastic, never seen such an extatic crowd too, it was like 2x the "worst" (or best depending on the side you look at things) i have seen in DC All cheering for Arese...

Re: The wins that made you really happy!

henmans win eariler over roddick is right up there lol.......

but i have to agree with Gouzo...i wanted agassi to complete the four slam set so much and it looked unlikely at 2 sets down to medvedev and was an emotionally tiring match to watch.
