Best matches of 2003 US Open

There weren't that many good matches, but these are my picks:

Juan Carlos Ferrero vs. Andre Agassi (semi-final)

Good baseline battle. Agassi seemed a little sluggish, but Ferrero took it to him, out-slugging him from the baseline, and taking the 1st 2 sets. He even made a between-the-legs shot. Agassi was starting to come back, winning the 3rd set, and getting to 4-4 in the 4th set. Then Ferrero got the break and toughed out the next service game (saving some break points) to win it, claiming the #1 ranking at that time.

Younes El Aynaoui vs. Jiri Novak (3rd round)

Such a close match, decided by a very close 5th set tiebreak, which was just absolutely entertaining and the crowd was really into it. It could have gone either way. El Aynaoui was up in that tiebreak but Novak got it back to 5-5. Then El Aynaoui squeaked out the victory.

2nd set of Roger Federer vs. James Blake (3rd round)

One of the best sets of tennis I've ever watched. Blake was down an early break and it could have been much worse but he saved 20 beak points. Most of the points were very entertaining. Federer was hitting some unbelievable shots, but Blake somehow managed to fight off all those break points. Blake eventually broke Federer and got it to a tiebreak, but Federer won it. Federer won the 3rd set in an easier fashion to take the match.

Re: Best matches of 2003 US Open

(Round 16) Younes El Aynaoui d. Carles Moyà 76 76 46 64

Set 1: El Aynaoui was down 5-6 15-40 with his serve game and saved the 2 SB and won at TB. The two players never lost a TB in all tournament.

Set 2: The best set played of the match: a lot of winners and long rallies at baseline of court. Same at 1st set, the 2nd set decided at TB

Set 3: The premiers breaks of match, 2 for Moyà and 1 for El Aynaoui. The serve games was more longer than other sets and the 3rd set were more exciting.

Set 4:
Another emotionant set, it decided with a break for El Aynaoui when Carlos serving with 3-3. Carlos had 2 BP with 4-5 down when El Aynaoui served for match.

Re: Best matches of 2003 US Open

Considering it's my least fave slam, I'll say SF Ferrero d AA and that Federer d Blake R3 was a crazy one, neither playing that well and the crowd overwhelmingly for their man Blake.

How about a LEAST FAVOURITE MATCH of the USO03??

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

Re: Best matches of 2003 US Open

Oh yes, Ferrero vs Agassi was a great, brilliant match. So many long rallies with both players doing their best. Ferrero vs Hewitt was also a very good match.


Favourite players:

Nadal ~ Fish [Fisho] ~ Ferrero [Juancho] ~ Hewitt [Llautó] ~ Nalbandian
