Which type of match would you rather see?

One with long baseline rallies a la a Nadal-Djokovic match up vs. a more 'smart' match a la Federer vs. Murray

Choose and discuss :cool:

:drive:

Federer vs Murray is smart? It's Mugray pushing and Olderer self destructing with UE's most of the time.

I prefer long baseline exchanges with very few UE's.

I'd rather watch the same Djokovic-Nadal match 10 times than the same Federer-Murray match twice.

Fed Murray. Especially if it was Fed's route of Murray in the US Open 2008 final - still probably the benchmark for fast HC tennis imo. Just a thing of beauty.

I understand why some would prefer the Nole vs Nads encounter...it certainly has its elements of drama as a spectacle - but it is much less an exhibit of tennis than it is a physical competition. The slugfests were novel to start with....but boy did they wear thin fast. :scratch:

But the only way we are going to see that kind of tennis anymore is if Stefan Edberg comes out of retirement and plays Roger Federer

Murray outsmarting Federer is always fun too watch, but so is Djokovic destroying Nadal at his own game.

Yeah, like in the two Grand Slam final they played you mean in which wily Murray managed to take a whole of zero sets from Federer?
