For personal reasons, Ferrero over Nalbandian. Especially because no-one gave JCF a chance before the match.

From a neutral perspective:

1. Hewitt over Baggy
2. Kohli over Roddick
3. Federer over Tipsy
4. Baggy over Safin

The first week was really good.

it's gotta be the kohlschreiber match because of its shotmaking. hewitt-baggy must've been fantastic too, but because of a certain tv station's decision to skip tennis, i wasn't able to watch it properly... :(

Federer called it the Happy Slam in his press conference leading up to the Australian Open last year.

My favourite matches are:
1. Federer def. Tipsarevic
2. Kohlschreiber def. Roddick
3. Tsonga def. Nadal
4. Hewitt def. Baghdatis
5. Koubek def. Moya

Tsonga defeat Nadal not just because Nadal lost but because Tsonga played terrific.

For me it has to be roddick Kohlschreiber, that long nite. 8-6 in the fifth was a corker. loved it especially because the clueless duck didnt win.

Moya and Koubek and Mathieu/Koubek were 2 of the best matches of the event in terms of tennis.

Ahhh I voted too quickly and forgot the Kohlschreiber-Roddick match.

My #1 favorite is the Janko match. If he would have pulled that off... man. I was so pumped during that match and the fact that ESPN showed the fourth and fifth sets without commercials was pretty darn awesome.

Moya and Koubek and Mathieu/Koubek were 2 of the best matches of the event in terms of tennis.

I had that one on the poll originally but by the time I got to round three, I only had 3 poll options left so I had to take some of the earlier round matches out. :mad:

I don't really think your vote is missed much. ;) It seems that match was the clear favorite from the past 2 weeks. :p

1. Rd 3: Kohlshreiber df Roddick 6-4 3-6 7-6 (9) 6-7 (3) 8-6 - because of the outstanding shotmaking from Kohli (104 winners) :yeah:

2. Rd 3: Federer df Tipsarevic 6-7 (5) 7-6 (1) 5-7 6-1 10-8 - my favorite player won in a tight 5th set :worship:

3. Semi Tsonga df Nadal 6-2 6-3 6-2 - awesome diplay of all court tennis from Tsonga :cool:

Moya and Koubek and Mathieu/Koubek were 2 of the best matches of the event in terms of tennis.

Mathieu vs Koubek should definately be in the poll. It was a memorable match for Koubek's "I don't give a shit" attitude alone.
