The Safin - Federer semi was a stand out.... though I did take a lot of joy in watching the final

Baghdatis-Federer.

Even I'm not lame enough to propose Moya vs. Garcia-Lopez.

Fed vs. Safin for pure drama.
I think the 5th set alone garners this honor (for me, at least).

Safin v Federer was the greatest but the Hewitt v Nadal was also fantastic! Saw that one live and it was a ripper.

Johansson - López I agree! The Federer - Safin match was great, but I think the Johansson - Lopez match was even better... such a thriller! And they were both playing so well! I really really enjoyed watching that match :)

Johansson-Lopez what a fun serve fest that was.

DEFINATELY Hewitt and Nadal! That was the most exciting match and Nadal put up a GREAT fight. :)

Fed-Safin is already the match of the year !!!
An AO semi-final with Safin: 04, 05, every year you get some fun !
Second is Fed-Suzuki, incredible battle between David and Goliath :worship:

Hewitt-Nadal. I loved seeing Nadal give it his all and show how great he really is, regardless of whether he won or lost. Hewitt was just too good on the day.

Marach vs Lisnard
I should good rep you for that. I still can't believe Oliver lost the plot at the end! Umpires should speak loudly and clearly, so as not to frustrate my guys! :lol:

Most amusing: Calleri vs Johansson
Most enjoyable: Oli Rochus df Nicolas Kiefer

Quarterfinal: Hewitt def. Nalbandian

Also Hewitt Nadal was exciting...

Johannsson v Lopez - less 'momenteous' than Safin v Federer, but actually the most thrilling match of the AO. On the woman's side, (if I'm allowed to say it here!) Dementieva v Hantchukova was an enthralling match-up.

Yasmine
02-02-2005, 10:02 AM
Oh that's a close one! And a lot of exciting matches in that AO!
Safin-Federer or hewitt-Nadal! I went for the second one... :devil:

Of the main court matches it is definetly Federer-Safin.

robinhood

Hewitt-Nadal was intense, but once Hewitt won the tiebreak in the fourth,
the match was pretty much decided whereas Fed-Safin kept
everyone in the edge of his seat until the very last volley.
I guess in that sense F.Lo-Johansson should be nominated as well.
And how about Serena-Sharapova?

Definatly Safin def federer

Go Marat

My fave was Joachim Johansson - Feliciano López, followed by Nalbandian - Coria.

I'd have to agree with the Safin-Fed match. It was great to see Fed Express go down at the hands of Safin, but the Hewitt-Nadal match was great cause Lleyts showed so much heart to come back.
A-Rod,Lleyts,Safin :worship: lovin my boys :worship:

Semifinal:Safin def. Federer !! it was an exciting match! And should be the final match imo ;)

Baghdatis-Federer.



Ditto.

1. Federer def. Baghdatis
2. Hewitt def. Nalbandian
3. Federer def. Suzuki


If you really enjoyed a Federer without any footwork, with a twitching arm nerve and without his usual combativeness then do choose Safin def. Federer.

Fed-Safin match all the way, but Johanson-Agassi match too!!

Safin/Fed .. that's an obvious one for me. It's just one of those matches that I could watch a million times and never get bored of because the tennis was so great.

I guess I get no prize for guessing who was gonna win this poll ;) Safin and Federer beeing the two most popular guys on this board, that match was gonna win even if it was the worst lol.

Federer-Safin and Molik-Davenport

Safin def. Federer for sure!!

Roddick vs Freakshow :sobbing: What? That was the funniest match :lol:


No seriously, I'd say Hewitt-Nadal or Safin-Federer.

I don't get it. If Federer would have been in fine form, yes this could have been a classic. But he wasn't! He was running like a senior. Please!

I don't think so. If you watched it you would see that some amazing tennis was played. :)

it's already been said, but the hewitt/nadal match was my favorite: so many swings of momentum, with the added bonus of nadal losing ;)

Only some.

Federer def. Baghdatis: technically the best tennis match I've ever seen.
Safin def. Federer: typically a match between two great players where one player is in bad shape and looses the match.

If you saw all of it you'd know why there were so many votes. And about the Fed/Baghdatis match, I know Marcos showed a lot of heart and talent out there, but at this point in his career he can't compete with the Safin match IMO.

Of course I saw all of it. :rolleyes:

FEDERER FINALLY BEATEN! SAFIN BACK AS TENNIS STAR! It was the most hyped up match, that's why it got the most votes. Is Uma Thurman really a stunning beauty? No, but the hype says she is.

Federer was way below his level that day. Besides his serve and some volleys, nothing really worked well. Especially the legs were bad. Therefore, this can not be the greatest match of the AO. It's only logical.

How am I supposed to know that you saw all of it? I don't know you and what tennis matches you watch and you showed no sign of sarcasm or joking in your original statement.

there were so many terrific matches but Safin def Fed was probably the best. IMO.

cuz I didn't watch all the matches.(Damned sport channel,I merely watched the game between Roger and Marat,great!!!)
But I guess they were all great games

SAFIN d. FEDERER!

Especially the legs were bad.

Bullshit... Marat made run Roger like no other and Rogi battled fiercly with his awesome footwork, maybe a bit upset by a little blister under one foot in the 2nd set. But the power displayed by Safin, his concentration, plus the tactical plan he prepared with Lundgren, were too much for Fed. Sorry mate, but I tell you it's the match of the year ;)

I agree, I didn't say it was the worst, just that it would win the poll anyway ;)
I'm watching it right now (thanks JustmeUK !!) and it is an awesome match !

If Federer was playing badly he would never have taken Safin to 5 :rolleyes:
He was perfectly fine in that match and playing great tennis.

Safin vs. Federer, of course, but Youzhny vs Nadal was highly entertaining as well (barring the outcome).

Safin d. Federer...even though I only watched it on TV, I was glued to the set the whole time...such a high standard of tennis. wow.

Hewitt d. Nadal...I was there live and it was just amazing, the only prob was that I was going for Rafa and he didn't win :(
