Ok...these are ones I was 'at'... so I'm basing it on the quality of tennis and atmosphere. (All except doubles, are from Aus Open)

Most fun:
Olivier Rochus vs Nicolas Kiefer :haha::lol: Oliii Olii olii oliiiii... Oli.... Oli!!!
PimPim vs Wessels

"Edge of your seat":
Melzer/Knowle vs Woodbridge/Arthurs
Lisnard vs Marach *I can hear you all saying "WHO!?"*

I'm sure I'll change my mind after Wimbledon/DC next month ;)

Unfortunately, I have not seen too many men's matches this year (no Eurosport...)
But from those that I have seen the two following come to my mind.
- O. Rochus - Safin (Australian Open)
- Nadal - Puerta (Roland Garros)

AO Safin vs Federer wasn't memorable for me :haha:
I'd had a full day of tennis or something... I don't know what... and I kept falling asleep. Each time I woke up I thought Federer was going to win... :tape:

The parts I stayed awake for, were entertaining.

Wow...here comes the new superstitious predictor.. :devil: and what did federer send you back?? :boxing:

seriously speaking...i never make predictions..and specially when it comes to these two playing against each other..there's nothing left to be expected and to be accurate..if both are having a good day..

it was really close At RG.. but guess Safin was the better one there at that match..at least at the critical moments

Yeah, JCF didn't play the big points well enough. Marat's backhand was :eek: that day. I think overally JCF won more points, and more games...

He hit dropshots at important times when they wern't on. Such a stupid boy!

Monte Carlo 1st round

Zabaleta v Henman (part 1)
with Chris Bailey's arrogant - Tim must be so pleased for the rain delay comment, he can now regroup and concentrate on winning tomorrow comment... followed by Mark Petchey's excellent look of stunned surprise as if to say... "CHRIS!! WHICH MATCH WERE YOU WATCHING!!! - Tim's Toast tomorrow!!

Followed by Zabaleta v Tim Part 2 - where Tim fights back - but the brilliant Zabaleta - pounds him into the clay infront of the Henmanites and celebrates brilliantly

This match was a true tribute to how brilliantly Zabaleta plays on Clay.... here's hoping he comes back to playing to this standard - if not even better...

The photographic medley from this match was brilliant too...
