Hi guys and girls,

Just a question that I thought of when posting in another thread.

I said I'd love to see Carlos vs Guga when both are at there peak.
Because both are the ultimate baseliners I have ever seen. "Explosive Precision".

In recent times, watching Rafter vs Agassi has be brilliant as well, but I'm thinking more of match ups that you haven't really seen much of.

But I'm not fussed. :)

Guga vs Safin is something that should have been happening every day. ;)
Rafter vs Agassi is a good pick too, Simon. Their last matches were awesome.
Guga vs Moya is something I cant forget. Their games seem to be made for that matchup. hehe

Guga vs Safin both at 100% is a good one.

Ferrero and Guga both at 100% on clay, is my favourite, but only if Ferrero wins ;)

Players with contrasting styles...like the good ol Agassi v Sampras days.

Hmmm maybe Id say, Kuerten v Hewitt...their Davis Cup match was exceptional, and Id love to see them go at it again!

Definitely Guga vs Marat. I think they both bring out the best in each other. Take a look at their matches:

2000 Indianapolis, Hard, F Kuerten 6 3 6 7 6 7
2000 Hamburg, Clay, F Kuerten 4 6 7 5 4 6 7 5 6 7
1999 Paris Indoor, Carpet, Safin 7 6 3 6 7 6
1999 Australian Open, Hard Safin 6 3 5 7 4 6 6 3 6 4
1998 Roland Garros, Clay, Safin 3 6 7 6 3 6 6 1 6 4

On carpet, the all russian Kafelnikov/Safin is interesting
Also on carpet, Kafelnikov/Mirnyi :bounce:

Becool, more than those four times, Guga played Rios in Porto Alegre in December 1997 (I guess), in an indoor carpet court. Rios won and those who went to see it said he was playing superb tennis. I didnt go because I was travelling though... :sad:

PS - I forgot to mention it was an exhibition match... :)

Kafelnikov vs. Guga or Kafelnikov vs. Rafter because they all have to rely on playing the game as opposed to just overpowering/out serving their opponents and they're equally matched. Normally, I've enjoyed these matchups.

Agassi vs. Rios - I just like the idea of Agassi getting his butt kicked again by the runt. Also, because Rios has a fun game to watch.

Hewitt-Federer

Federer-Ferrero

Hewitt- Ferrero

Federer-Roddick (oh wait we already saw that one at Wimbledon :devil: )

Reason for the first three, because I find the games of those 3 guys good to watch so a match-up at their peaks should be double good to watch, in theory at least!

The fourth, well I just like moronic tennis commentators that ignore amazing talent like Federer's being deflated a notch or two. Plus it was fun to watch.

Lisbeth
09-17-2003, 06:44 AM
guga vs marat
lleyton vs marat

Oh yes - how could I have forgotten lleyton-marat For that matter i'd like to see Roddick play Marat, I'd be bored sh*tless by all the aces but it would definitely be an interesting match.
