Best quality/drama match of the 2010 AO?

Personally none of the matches had both, but Tsonga-Almagro could probably be nominated for the best drama match and Murray-Nadal for quality.

PS. I'm probably missing some other ones as I have not watched all televised ones.

Murray - Nadal for sustained quality. I suppose the injury & subsequent retirement could be classed as drama. Other matches had quality in small spells, but nothing like the afore mentioned matchup.

I loved the Cilic-Delpo match.

01-31-2010, 02:21 PM
Djokovic - Tsonga :D very odd, but with a lot of drama and BAD TENNIS

I don't know that there's any instant classics this year.

Del Potro-Blake, Del Potro-Cilic and Gasquet-Youzhny were all good value though

I'd vote for Gasquet vs. Youzhny as well. Incredible tennis and drama :):worship:

Another vote here for Gasquet vs Youzhny

Youzhny-Hajek, then Tsonga-Almagro

Agree with Hajek and great to see him winning matches at slams after the health problems he's had.

Youzhny V Hajek? That match was poor Youzhny just kept the ball in.

Youzhny V Gasquet was match of the tournament for me. I have the final 3 sets in my signature below if someone wants to watch it.

For me Tsonga vs Almagro was the best but it could be argued that the match with the most drama came on the womens side, Williams vs Azarenka was drama personified.

Gasquet vs Youzhny

It had quality and drama.

01-31-2010, 11:23 PM
Del Po-Blake

You could see the ball slicing the air :)

I didn't watched Gasquet v Youzhny :(

from what I saw, Tsonga vs Almagro was the best.

others: Delpo vs Cilic, Baghdatis vs Ferrer and Gonzalez vs Korolev.

Since QF, all matches wheren't that good.

+1 :yeah: Maybe not the most sophisticated tennis but I really liked this match from the matches I could watch.

02-01-2010, 10:27 AM
No absolute classics. The highest quality tennis I thought was on display in the Murray-Nadal match - both played very well.

Best combo of quality and drama

Blake - Del Potro.

But as others have mentioned, this tournament had very few memorable matches.

02-01-2010, 12:50 PM
Nadal - Murray for quality, Cilic - Del Potro for drama.
I wish this had been two separate threads!

02-01-2010, 12:58 PM
I guess Nole throwing up was quite some drama for his supporters.
Haven't watched all those that come into contention of course, but out of those which I've seen, I have to give the edge to Almagro-Tsonga.

Roddick-Gonzalez was really good as well. Lots of winners and entertainment in this one.

Blake-Del Potro was the best one, IMO. Exciting, dramatic, and great quality tennis.
