I agree this match should be included.

Oh, and though I didn't see it personally, the Ferrero-Gaudio match at RG I remember as being close.

Okay I didn't actually see it, but I *did* see highlights of Ferrero-Agassi at Roland Garros and would include it - then again that might just be my own personal bias.

Tennishack - that match with Gaudio was hella weird! Ferrero had set points in every single set! Then Gaudio super choked in the last set.

Was Johanson/Novak at Oz not good? Two guys in the semis of a slam who not many would have picked to be there - who may or may not get that opportunity again - if memory serves it went 5 sets?

Becca I have seen this match but I don't remember too much and coz I remember almost nothing I think it wasn't good.:p

I only saw the U.S. Open men's matches, so I can't comment on the whole year...
The Schalken/Gonzalez match at the Open was great. So was Corretja/Roddick (even if Alex lost).

Corretja/Clement RG the most emotionally draining match I've ever seen

Santoro/Norman RG the Magician at his best
Grosjean/Blake RG very entertaining
probably Moya/Canas but I didn't see that one

I loved the Safin vs Kiefer match at the US Open. Awesome sportsmanship displayed by Marat, and encouraging vigor from Nicolas.

09-16-2002, 05:33 AM
Haas vs. Federer Aus Open (really could have gone either way)
Haas vs. Rios Aus Open (I'm surprised no one mentioned this was awesome)
Hewitt vs. Blake US open
Safin vs. Kiefer US Open

One of them has to be Hewitt v. Schalken (Wim), as Schalken was the only man to take sets off of Hewitt in the tourney.

...And definitely Hewitt v. Blake in USO!
