goran is very happy with 2001. victory, but still, i always wonder what could have been.....

Tough choice.
Either Sjeng Schalken to beat Hewitt at Wimbledon 2002 quarterfinals. Schalken was 2 points from victory and I seriously think Schalken could have won the whole tournament if he progressed to the semis.
Second option is Schalken to beat Sampras at the 2002 USO. Though I think Agassi would have won the final, it would have been a great accomplishment for the underrated Schalken to reach the spotlight at Flushing Meadows. An additional benefit would be that it would be a tad easier for somebody (Federer) to break Sampras' grand slam record.

Strangely enough, I'd prefer those matches over the Roland Garros final between Verkerk and Ferrero. It seems to me that Verkerks run to the final was great enough as it was and winning the whole tournament would have been a bit undeserved.

The NYC crowd never really rooted for Lendl until he got old and wasn't the world's dominant player anymore. In his later years, they rooted quite heavily for him. They did respect him though. I remembe quite a few times when the crowd would be making a lot of noise and Lendl would put a finger to his lips and the place would quiet down in a hurry, faster than any umpire could get them to anyway.

As for that great '88 final, Lendl had owned everyone at the USO for 3 consecutive years, giving everyone a beatdown. In the years '85-'87, I believe he lost just 3 sets. One to Wilander in the '87 final, one to Leconte in '86, and one to Yzaga in '85. He was bit more vunerable in '88 with a five-setter against Mansdorf in the 1st round, a set lost to someone else and a set lost to Agassi in the SF. The '87 final was pretty good against Wilander but I don't think anyone really doubted the final result. The '86 final was a massacre against Mecir. The crowd wanted a new winner and it looked like it would have to be the Wilander of '88 who could get the job done.

Considering how much crap he got from people and the media in general I am aware of the perception.

They really didn't care either way who won. It's not Wilander ever captured the hearts of the crowd, he wasn't that kind of player, you're right any support he got was cause he wasn't Lendl.

No idea why you've typed this because I wasn't questionning this thread at all but my choice of the match Rafter vs Ivanisevic is not based on sheer merit (objective - i.e. one deserving it more than the other) but it's a general preference of one player over the other and one style of play over another (subjective).

Henman/Ivanisevic- wimbly 01- I really like Goran, but this match stills stings for me, especially as I was at all three days. At least Tim actually got to play on Final Sunday, even if it was still a semi.

Henman/Coria S/F 04- Henman winning RG would have been a classic (he would probably have been favoured against Gaudio). :lol: Related to this, I would have changed it, so the winner of this semi was the champion.

Roddick/Federer Wimbledon final 04- I picked this one, over this year's, for Andy to win as I was in the crowd at this match and I would have loved to see ma boy take the title, in person. :)

I guess I would choose the AO 2004 semi-final, Federer v Ferrero. If JC could have pulled that one off, who knows what could have happened in the resulting final. I've always thought that the Safin v Ferrero match-up was worthy of a grand slam final but I don't think it will ever happen now. :sad: 2nd and 3rd round matches only for these two.

That's just ONE of his 2310532509 chokes and ONE of those 535980 where he had MPs. If I had to choose only one of those 2310532509 chokes to reverse, it would be the DC 2002 Final deciding rubber against Youzhny. If there is a career-defining match of PHM's, this is it. :sad:

if moya won this match he was much longer the number one in 1999, because he would won more points and his advantage to the number two in 1999 was not big enough to hold his first place now

2003 US Open final. It would have been so good if Ferrero had won that match. Two slams in one year. RG and US Open. Something Federer will never acheive.

I guess you must hate Federer very much. Federer won 2 slams this year and im pretty sure that JCF will never ever be able to win 2 in one year actually i doubt that he will be able to win more slams in his career with his game

On the ladies side, Myskina vs Henin-Hardenne at he Olympics. It meant so much to her, and really doesnt seem like Justine honors it. She also would have had a better U.S. Open and so could also have finished #1 for 2004.

Ah, but Ferrero lost to Ferreira, not Schuettler. He would certainly have given the old man a better match in the semis than his eternal pigeon Wayno did, though.

As a Federer fan the RG semi against Nadal is a given, not just because of the result but because of the performance. And every Henman fan knows which match they would have loved to see with a different winner....

I wish Schalken had closed out Hewitt at Wimbledon 2002 as well.

just think, roddick would be so close to the #1, he would have more confidence heading into the US hardcourt summer, and probably wouldnt have lost to Joachim in the USO QF. Also, Fed's streak at #1 would be gone, He'd only have 2 wimblys, and none back-2-back, and roddick might not be in this funk he's been in.

You're right, I thought Ferreira in my head but wrote Schuettler.

And I agree about that Schalken match. Such a shame he lost a narrow 5th set after fighting all the way back and having so many chances to win. Then who knows who would have won Wimbledon 2002? Would have been a nutty finale opposed to the predictable Hewitt win.

2. Borg beating Connors in USO final
3. Edberg beating Chang in RG 1989
4. Mecir beating Lendl in USO final

Ferrero vs Roddick 2003 U.S. Open final. Ferrero would have 2 slams then and on different surfaces. No one could even come close to calling him a 1 slam wonder and he would have finished the year #1.

And he will be the first Spanish player ranked year end No.1.Given that if he won USO,how can he lose 3 matches in a row in TMC?then Federer can't over him in that year.
Maybe today everything is so different.I can't take back yesterday,it makes me sad. :sad:

It was in 1924 Wimby final. Two Frenchman face to face on the grass field Borotra against Lacoste . Nobady expect that fury battle will be done. After 4.27 h of play on the scorebord (in those days scores changed handy-man ) was 2:2 in sets and start lightly raining. Some audience had ( in that day there were about 60 tennis fans, nobady queue for tickets, no tickets just open gates...it's hardly imagine today...I was stayed 5h last year to buy ticket...) starting left bleachers. Borotra Family (wife and stepbrother ) stayed invariably . When in 5 set was 4:4 gem each other during forehand hit Borotra broke wooden racket( Maxplay) frame. In that times players didn't have bags filled spare rackets and all that stuff , even no towels on court. Each player had one racket , also no change balls after 7 gems , they played one ball (Like in table-tennis) spare ball had refree. Borotra was desperate and on the borderto start cry but...Lacosta ....bared his teeth (probably until they colled him crocodille smile) on the end Borotra tryed play by rocket ....hand but he could not a chance to win. After that Borotra stoped smoke water-pipe.

Rosewall over Connors in 74 - Martin over Agassi USO - Edberg over Lendl- AO final the year Stefan had to reitre due to injury. He was up a set and a break when he got injured. Up to that point he was totally dominating the match and would have won if not injured, IMHO

But maybe if davide had won his match point a few months later in the U.S.O semi-finale, that would neutralize rodick's hypothestical wimbledon win and not change any history

I am a Roddick Fan, but I honestly think that in 2003 he wasn't ready for Wimbly but the 2004 title was taken off him by the rain :p

Billy Jean King over Bobby Riggs, Sept. 20, 1973

I was just a kid and barely interested in tennis, but the crap that males had to take from females over this stupid match was unbelievable. You’d think that a woman had won the heavyweight boxing championship, instead of a 29-year-old athlete in peak condition beating a 55-year-old has-been.

Yes, I just post in the "Who can win 4 slams" thread that 2004 finale in Wimbledon is the most Roge has been pushed in a grass match, I think.
But if I recall correctly, the rain was also a factor to get for andi to get to the finale in the first place, because he motioned very vigorously to the umpire during his Semi Finale with mario to get off the court, and mario had the momentum at that time. He himself pointed to this after the final ends and someone asked him about the role of the rain

Stich - Volkov, 1/8 WIM 1991. 4-6 6-3 7-5 1-6 7-5
Alexander in 5th set had 5-5 40-30*, Stich is running forward after service and Alex's ball should be in court, but net and 5 cm out.
Then Stich def. Courier(4) 3-0, Edberg(1) 3-1 and Becker(2) 3-0.

But Chesnokov in 1995 saved 9 MPs against Stich in Davis semi's 5th match:)

and of course RG 04 final...

One for each slam over the last 4 or 5 years.

Australian Open - Roger over Marat. It seems that Roger always loses in the great matches :(

Roland Garros - Corretja over Guga in '01. I love Guga but Alex really deserved to win RG.

Wimbledon - I'd have loved to see Henman beat Goran to take on Rafter in the wimbledon final. Goran deserved his crown but poor Tim :(

US Open - I wouldn't change anything. It would've been nice to see Federer bagel Hewitt in the middle set in '04 though. :)

See, this is why I say Henman over Hewitt in 02...that way Henman actually gets a Wimbly title (he couldn't hope for a better opponent in the finals than a young, nervous Nalby) AND Goran gets his great win.

Any Pat Rafter final match at Wimby, he deserved to win Wimby atleast once :sad:

:yeah:

Sampras deserved the Wimbledon title in 2000 in front of his parents and Goran the title in 2001, but especially in the match between Pat and Goran I wished that there could be two winners sometimes in tennis.

I would also add the final between Becker and Sampras at the ATP Championships in Hanover in 1996 which Boris lost in 5 sets. It was a hell out of match and I was so frustrated afterwards.

And of course this years French Open final. It would have been very special for Roger to win that title and receive the trophy from Stefan Edberg, who was his idol earlier on.

you gotta love quantum physics. The ripple effect, right?

Most heartbreaking match of my entire life? Sampras Agassi USO 2001. If there was a way I could have won that match for Andre, I'd have done so. Sigh.

Wimby of this year I'd change too.

2006 DC final (Acasuso-Safin)---> not only because we would have won the DC but also because it would have been great for Chucho.

I'm sorry, I'm a Rafa fan, but Wimbly 2006 WAS. NOT. CLOSE.
Rafa gave Rogi a good match, sure, and I was very delighted to see him there and do so well - he was in fact the ONLY ONE to be able to steal away a set from Rogi during the entire tournament, a fact that is very often forgotten - but in the end, nay - it was Rogi's match.

In all honesty, though, I wouldn't have minded to see Rafa win Wimbly, on one premise - that Rogi would've won RG in return. ;)
