5-sets final - nostalgia?

I know it was such thread few months ago, didn`t succeed in finding. But let it be.

Now we`ll have first final in 5-sets format since OG-08 (forget about GS). 2007 was the last year when some Masters finals were played over 5 sets. Some active players even took part in such final in lesser category (Fed in Basel-01 for example). I almost got used to current situation, but today remembered a few matches from past which never would be repeated I guess. Rome-06? It was amazing, etc.

Simply one question - do you feel the same, maybe you thought about it last few days? ;) Nostalgia got me. :sad:

It became special, of course. I still miss it.

Definitely some of the TMS events and even some 500's like Basel or Barcelona have become devalued due to 3 set instead of 5 set finals now.

Rome 06 was one of the greatest matches ever, Rome 05 as well, Miami 2005, and so on. Has there been a memorable TMS final since 2007? Maybe Miami 2011, but that's it.

There hasn't been one no. That match was overrated anyway it was a physical display of marathon tennis with some of the most bone-crunching points (and slides!) on a hard court I've ever seen.

Last memorable TMS final I would go for would be the Nalbandian back to back ones.

Well of course you would enjoy Nadal getting bageled in Paris 07 F :lol:

I think those events are more impressive due to Dave's entire runs. Beating Fed and Nadal in Paris, and I believe Fed, Nadal, AND Djokovic in Madrid. Epic runs.

What's worse is that even the Year End Masters final is best of 3, that is the biggest travesty here.

You`ve forgotten the best one - IW-10. :yeah:
