Of course, it is too early to prematurely crown a match the best of the year since we're only halfway through, but what is your top five so far and why?

1. Rafa def Roger, Rome Final
2. Rafa def Roger, FO Final
3. Roger def Marcos, AO Final
4. Rafa def Roger, Monte Carlo Final
5. Roger def Haas, AO 4RD -->or Marcos def David, AO SF

...Can`t give you any good reasons except that No.1 is blatantly obvious & I usually think of matches in FINALS as the only significant ones, otherwise Grand Slam matches that ultimately lead to victory. No.2 Was a tough one to pick but considering what was at stake I`ll still say it was a great match.

The ROME final for me hands down. :worship:
And the Dubai final. :)
The DC qf match Marat vs Richie was good too, no doubt, at least the best from Marat. :)
