2010, because of the third set. Generally Aussie Open finals are weaker than the finals in the other Grand Slams :o

This year`s final i would put at the same level as the Federer-Gonzalez final.Gonzo had his chances was a break up in first set but still lost in straight sets.Last year was great but i also enjoyed when Safin beat Hewitt.

It's funny how one sided alot of those finals are, in terms of straight set victories.

Tojo def. Safin, just for sheer unpredictability. Safin, with the Safinettes in his box, had come to be crowned. He looked like he had partied the previous night also!

He really learned the hard way. I felt sorry for him, but was so happy to see a shocker. Sort of like Gaudio def. Coria

07 or 09.

Some of the best matches of the decade have been AO SF's, though.

2009 is my pick as well. Some really great points and Nadal winning his OA after a superb tournament.

When Rafa made Federer cry

That was unbelievable. The guy had won everything, more than all other people and he was still crying to not be the winner.

You won't found more egocentric.

Some voter mugs here seem to prefer 5 sets of shitty tennis to 3 good sets. Favorite that I saw live was probably '07. Both guys played aggressive, some amazing FHs throughout the match, Fed in his most well-rounded form.

2004, Fed was unreal in that one, really carved Safin apart.

Also 2005 Safin was on fire.

I'm glad you posted a list because I realized I barely recall any of these. I do remember I fell asleep during the 2005 match... I guess I enjoyed 2009's the most, mainly for the schadenfreude. :o

Best AO match is 2005 SF Safin def. Fed
Best final will be 2009 Nadal def Fed.

I really enjoyed 3rd set of 2010 final as much as i hate that Murray didnt win it; it really was epic.

For my money, the SF was better than the final in both 2005 and 2009.

Agassi vs. Schuttler was a real "cracker".

2007 was the highest quality.
