While Rafa-Djokovic's 6 finals all had drama in them, I'd have to say Rogie vs. Djokovic USO SF was the best of 2011 and then in second place, Rogie vs. Djokovic in the 2011 FO SF.

I clearly remember sitting through the nearly 4 hour battle between Rogie and Djokovic and Rogie having the two match points, just like in the 2010 USO SF and blowing them both again and again losing 7-5 in the 5th set. Although Rogie lost both matches to Djokovic, they both proved how great the 29/30-year-old Rogie is, that one has to usually play the match of their life to beat him (i.e. 2008 W and 2009 AO Finals, Rafa over Rogie).

To sum it up, the 2011 USO SF was one the best battles I've seen since watching tennis for nearly a decade now (since early 2002 really). Rafa-Verdasco 2009 AO SF, Rogie-Rafa 2006 Rome F, they were classics too. Any match that lasts 4 hours or more is exciting, some great W matches too (2009 F Rogie over Roddick and 2011Isner over Mahut, 3 days and 11 hours, 5 minutes). Heck, even Rogie and Rafa's 2011 FO F was great, 4 sets, 3hours and 40 minutes and their best FO matchp ever. Seems like a lot of the great matches involve Rogie, Rafa, and/or Djokovic in some way, shape, or form.

No intresting but not always best quality, the only match where they both played really well the entire time was in Australia.

The single best in terms of tactics, quality everything was Rome with Andy.

Methinks hatred for Fed clouded your judgment has.

For me, best matches of the year:
Nole vs Fed, RG semifinal.
Mugray vs Nole, Rome (semi?)
Nole vs Rafa, USO.

There were a couple of thrillers with Tsonga, e.g.:
Tsonga vs Nadal, Queen's,
Tsonga vs Fed, Wim,
Tsonga vs Fed, Mtl,
(Tsonga vs Nadal at WTF wasn't quite as good, but similar stuff)

Not the best tennis, but upsets, and some brilliant attacking tennis (rare, and nice to see these days).

It was cool to see Sexy win a tourny this year, but it wasn't the finest tennis ever.

That one match where Murray beat Federer was pretty good too.
OH WAIT :rolleyes:

I am surprised so many people are bringing up Federer/Djokovic RG SF. In my opinion, that match is greatly overrated. The joy of Djokovic in 2011 was watching his outrageous movement, and his movement was so lacking since he couldn't get the right traction and kept slipping. He also played a ghastly, ghastly 2nd set and went on walkabout.

For me, most of the most memorable matches were Novak wins. It was that kind of year. The best quality ones for me:
1) Nole/Rafa Miami F. I think this one gets overlooked, but it was incredible. Absolute warfare, but with quality, and Djokovic had to dig himself out of a hole with brilliant tennis in his last service game.
+ Nole/Delpo RG 3R.
+ Nole/Rafa Rome F.
+ Nole/Murray Rome SF.
+ Nole/Rafa W and USO Fs. The hitting that Nole achieved in the 2nd set of the W match and the 4th set of the USO match was awesome.
+ Nole/Fed USO SF. Was there live for both of his last two wins in NY and wow!

Andy has improved so much as well on clay. With Roland Garros being so fast now, will be a serious contender for that title.

Best Match: Djokovic vs Federer RG 2011

A clash between a washed up Federer trying to prove he still has the game and a hungry Djokovic trying to reach a new record of consecutives wins. It wasn´t a 5 set thriller, but it was probably the most dramatic and emotional match of 2011, culminating with the win of Federer, waving his finger, showing he still got it. Brilliant.

Best Set: 3rd Set Djokovic vs Nadal US Open 2011

What happens when you put two counterpunchers against each other? One of the most grueling sets i have ever seen, with Djokovic and Nadal trying to hit the ball as hard as they could, in order to penetrate each other´s defenses. This set ended in a one-sided tie-break and it was much for Nadal that burnout in 4th one.

Worst Match: Murray vs Simon Cincinnati 2011

And what happens when you put against two players pushing as most as they can? A snooze fest. By far, the worst match of 2011. Murray and Simon were just passing the ball without much effort, just waiting for an error. Dreadfull.

Federer vs. Tsonga at Wimbledon. Fed was an idiot to let that one go.

Pretty much every match after RG. For a while, I stopped caring about tennis or much else since my mother passed away. Virtually every match after that seemed flat and dull to me, even mathches my favorite players won. Every loss was that much harder to bear. This year was awful.

The ATP staff chose the US Open semi, SI as well, many other writers chose the USO semi. I think Steve just wanted to be original and go against everybody else. :lol: :lol:

It's a question of personal taste. Both the RG and USO semis were very dramatic, but as tennis matches go, I liked the AO semi between Roger and Nole more. The quality of tennis was outstanding and it lasted the entire match. :)

Both players were pretty good throughout. Yes, some blips here and there, but you'll never escape that in tennis. US Open SF was great, but it was rather a serve fest for the first two sets with Djokovic just not playing great while Federer going away for sets 3 and 4. Yes, the 5th was actually OK in terms of quality and certainly dramatic, but neither player was playing as good as Roland Garros.

Can you stop being a tard and turn off your radar that allows you to find posts that aren't praising Djokovic? You are going to be in for one hell of a ride these next few years, especially if Djokovic cannot replicate this past season at all. Posters will give Djokotards hell.

Best: Just in my eyes, Fed vs Djokovic RG SF. I think the pure quality, ballstriking, and the atmosphere of this match was just amazing. And I havent personally felt so pumped up since RG 2009 semifinal between Federer and Delpotro...
The USOpen semi between these guys was great too, but the quality of play wasnt this high and it was a magnificent comeback+chokejob combined. Anyway, I guess I just dont like to remember it as much...

Worst: Loads of pathetic matches, but the one that stands out for me is that horrible Miami semifinal between Rafa and Roger, it was so unexpected and I felt so let down as a fan to watch a guy like Federer not even trying. That was a massive disappointment from an unexpected front

That's precisely why I object to using Tignor's opinion as part of an argument. It's his personal opinion, it doesn't add any strength to any position. One has to argue with ideas and facts, not appealing to some authority.

I will always like the Australian Open best, partly because I won a lot of money on it (remember the crazy odds the bookies were offering? 1.1 for Roger, 2.9 for Novak, it was irresistible and I did bet, but never mentioned it on the ACC forum because I was too happy and didn't want to be a bad influence to youngsters! :lol:). So maybe that's why I love that match. It was exhilarating to me to know that Novak was going to pay for my tickets to Europe with his triumph. But I insist that the quality of the tennis was top-notch... I may be biased, though. :devil:

Yeah Right.
When one player plays "godly", usually the other player cannot do anything. You got that one right.
Surprisingly Federer had a lead with a break in 2 of those three sets against God-Mode Djokovic. Hmm. Very interesting.
And btw the RG match wasnt close looking from Djokovic's side. He lost.

You wanna watch a true "God Mode" match between two of these great players? Watch Nadal-Federer FO 08, Federer-Djokovic WTF '10 or Federer-Nadal WTF '11/'07. THAT is true God-Mode

Well, then Federer had what...*1-0 and *2-1 in the first set and choked to go down 2-4:D
See, my post about Federer leading twice in the AO was a response to someone saying "the other guy couldnt do anything", which was from the truth. I wasnt saying he should have won those sets, just that that match between was one of the closest three setter one wud have seen.
AT RG, Novak may not have been able to reproduce his 2011 level throughout the match, but Federer didnt exactly maintain his high level throughout either. Thing is, this "at his best" hypothesis is way overused in all of sport. Its just not that simple.

AO-I stopped caring about AO 2011 after Ferrer lost to Murray and Roger tanked to Nole. Things just went downhill from there the rest of the year.

your pick for the worst match of the year is the W F?

It was a shite, forgettable final only slightly less shit than Nadal-Berdych the year before.

USO final was better though, third set in particular

best match - RG Federer d. Djokovic........ the finger point at the walk to the net was probably the coolest gesture i have ever seen, so perfect.

worst match- so many to choose from........ probably for me it would be Bolgomolov d. Murray Miami, that match was just so bad from Murray made me want to cry

that's because you are Nadaltard that almost wet his pants thinking Novak might win when in reality that gesture was showing Fed's lack of class.....If Novak had done that to him what would you have said?......

Goat cheese has always lacked of class and respect towards his opponent, it's not a breaking news...the finger point is just another proof how stupid and arrogant he is...

Rome semifinal Djokovic/Murray is the best match
worst: USO Nadal-Roddick and IW Djokovic-Gulbis that was painful

Nadal vs. Golubev was horrendous -.- breaks left and right with Golubev choking every lead he got

a lot of unforced errors, for me it was one of the worst top10 matches this season.

I think a good 80 percent of the matches this year stank! The matches they chose as the top 30 of 2011 brought back a flood of bad memories this year. The Tennis Channel is replaying some of the most boring matches played this year with some of the most boring players.

Best: Montreal R1: Dodig def Nadal - Such a fighter...such huge balls.
Worst: Acapulco R1: Schwank def. Chela - Grandpa Chela got away with it again.

I can't believe MTF deleted the pre-match thread that I started from that Schwank vs. Chela match, where I and many other MTF members magically predicted the course of events in the second set, while the match was happening.

Sijsling - Clement 6-2 1-6 7-6 in Segovia was by far the worst Match in 2011
