Best Match of the Australian Open 2012?

I know it may be a few weeks late. Don't care. Australian Open in 10times more important than Davis Cup and that 250 in poland or wherever. I thinking about getting some AO dvds. Cant decide which matches i want. Ones where i was front row would be swell. Also curious to see what matches you guys thought were the best.

My pick is Dolgopolv vs Tomic. I was front row for this. Money well spent, not that it matters for me. 5 sets. Just a thriller. Drama and great shot making. Add a bit of aussie flavor and you have a killer match.

I was there too but not front row. I went to the AO to watch Fed and that was the only Fed match I watched so it has special significance for me :hearts:

How did you get your front row ticket btw?

Well i was front row because I'm filthy rich and have many contacts around the world. The only Federer matches i watched was this one and the Karlovic match. Had tickets to the beck game on Hisense (front row) but the pussy pulled out. Probably because of fear.

Really? Can I be your friend? I spent a bomb on my trip and didn't even get front row seats. Yeah, Beck is the biggest gimp of all time. I bought an additional ticket for that match.

No i don't make friends with people over the internet. The only friends i have, have lots of money like me and are in very high places. I only make friends with people who are on my level on the social ladder. I.e the top.

The Djokovic vs Nadal match was outstanding. I would know. I was courtside. Only finals match i went to.

You sound poor. True ballers like me have the top players flown in on a daily basis to play best-of-seven set matches in my backyard. Get on my level brawh.

it was also the match I preferred.

As for the "best one", clearly it was the final.

Chardy vs Dimitrov? Amazing play on match point :hearts:

Hewitt =Legend
02-13-2012, 06:50 AM
I'm not positive but I'm pretty sure I witnessed a rally that lasted over 8 shots in that match. Both should be inducted into the Hall of Fame for their herculean efforts in that one.

Its really hard for me to choose between the GOAT matches I saw live.

Del Pony Vs Kavcic
Lu Vs Serra
Chardy Vs Dimitrov
Mugro Vs Qbot
Stahovsky Vs Marchenko
Lu Vs De Voest
Hass Vs Rafito

Simply a GOAT lineup ... I think I'll have to go with watching Tipsy practice.

Quality wise it had to be Berdych vs Nadal by a long way.

Nadal-Berdych in terms of consistent quality.

Berdych's first two sets v Nadal were pretty darn good.

for pure tennis class, you know what I do, I turn good old fed-roddick matches on utube. a headless donkey running about like a cretin, being drilled through all his holes by a master who appears to have it all.

but is that 'best'?

well that depends. for me a sporting quality is something I dont really have to watch over and over again, but rather what I internally experience while observing it as it happens. 'living' it right up with those guys. in that sense 3 matches that Ive seen stand out from AO, it was dolgo tomic, when I think tomic showed great steel, murray djoko, and to top them all, djoko nadal which was just unbelievable to experience. subjective, yes, entirely. but thats it.

Petzschner vs. Rosol

I am guessing you are being ironic here, but as a Picasso fan I would really like to know if he was as good as I have heard.

Did you watch the whole match courtside?

Toss up between Novak's semi and final match. Murray, playing his best, brings more variety of game than Nadal. Both were great matches, but I would give the semi the slight edge.

Djokovic-Murray
Nadal-Berdych.... Highly Recommended

Dimitrov-Tomic

Novak v Andy. I can not wait to see it again, in Dubai, Indian wells, monte carlo, wherever.

GrantOz44
02-14-2012, 08:25 AM
Nadal-Berdych
Djokovic-Nadal
Tsonga-Nishikori

In any order, really. All different kinds of matches, different levels of quality, but all highly entertaining.
