Just wondering what everyones favourite whole day (including night) at a grand slam was. I don't think a similar thread has been done on this.

Mine has got to be day 6 of the 2008 Australian Open, it was absolutely epic. It was:

Day Session

(27) Maria Kirilenko def. (6) Anna Chakvetadze 6-7 (6) 6-1 6-2
Marin Cilic def. (7) Fernando Gonzalez 6-2, 6-7(4), 6-3, 6-1
(1) Roger Federer def. Janko Tipsarevic 6-7(5), 7-6(1), 5-7, 6-1, 10-8

Night Session

(8) Venus Williams def. (31) Sania Mirza 7-6(0) 6-4
(19) Lleyton Hewitt def. (15) Marcos Baghdatis 4-6, 7-5, 7-5, 6-7(4), 6-3

Mostly for the Fed/Tipsy and Rusty/Baggy matches but there will never be another session like it with the drama concluding at 4:34am. I saw it all live in person and it was the most entertaining sporting event I've been to so far. Atmosphere was just electric!

So what was everyone elses most memorable day at a slam and list all the matches :)

That was such a great day/night...can't think of much else I've seen that tops that.

Wasn't Kohlschreiber-Roddick in the day session too? I remember that, Fed-Tipsy, and Hewitt-Bags being part of the same TV coverage, although it almost seemed like ESPN overlapped around the day and had the next day's coverage soon after :lol:

This.

And I know this isn't the question asked in the OP per se but the first half of this year's Wimbledon was in my opinion one of the best opening weeks of a Grand Slam tournament that I have seen in a long while.

I think the Kohli/Duck match was the day before on the friday. If that was on the same day Hewitt/Baggy wouldn't have finished till like 7am :lol:
