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?

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).

Haas/Safin AO

Corretja/Clement RG the most emotionally draining match I've ever seen
Ferrero/Agassi RG hehe :)
Santoro/Norman RG the Magician at his best
Grosjean/Blake RG very entertaining
probably Moya/Canas but I didn't see that one

Krajicek/Philippoussis Wimby
Henman/Hewitt Wimby

Blake/Hewitt USO superb tennis
Safin/Kiefer USO for sheer drama
Schalken/Gonzalez USO
Grosjean/Clement USO

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

Haas vs. Federer Aus Open (really could have gone either way)
Haas vs. Rios Aus Open (I'm surprised no one mentioned this one...it was awesome)

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!
