Just interested to see what everyone is looking forward to seeing this year if it happens.

Players 1. Federer - Nadal 2. Safin - Nadal 3. Gasquet - Baghdatis

Surface 1. Rebound ace or grass :devil: 2. Clay 3. slowish hard court maybe.

Event 1. AO 2. RG 3. US or AO

There isn't a match I'm really looking forward to seeing at wimby. Myabe Hewitt - Roddick

Federer vs Dent on either grass or fast hardcourt; believe it or not, Dent is the only long-time member of the Top 50 who Federer has never played before (the others are fairly recent entrants, Serra and Tursunov). Obviously he'd need a good serving day, but he could make things interesting if his serve and volleys were on song.

Dent is a decent serve volleyer but I think Fed would destroy him, he loves a target, especially on grass. It would be a nice match to watch though as Fed vs serve-volleyers always are. Lots of nice passing shots.

Federer has never played Joachim who was in the Top 50 99% of last year injured or not.

He was also in line to meet with him in the Wimby draw last year on a birthday match which would've been sweet.

Federer-Nadal at any clay court event with Fed winning :D
Federer-Gasquet at Wimby with Gasquet bringing his A+ game and I don't care who wins.
Federer-Safin at the USO Final/TMC/Any hard court event!
Gonzalez-Santoro on clay and also indoor hard court :) with Gonzo trying every manner of dropshot
Gonzalez-Johansson with both going hell for leather.. forget the finesse.. I've got the power!
Murray-Roddick with Roddick looking completely bewildered yet again :devil:
Nadal-Coria on clay with Coria going through to win in 5 without a single double fault in the deciding set and then Guille rediscovering his confidence :).

Federer - Nadal on clay without a doubt. Monte Carlo would be a great venue for this match. I think Fed is nervous playing against Nadal so he will have to dig deep and it will be fun to watch that match.

Safin - Nadal on slow hard. I hope I get to see this in Miami. This has the makings of a classic.

Baggy - Hewitt on fast hard. Maybe Indian Wells? Another classic.

I am sure I can think of more mouth-watering matches.

Murray - Roddick & Murray - Hewitt were two matches I was hoping to see this year, it would be nice to see them play each other a few more times this year, especially if the results are the same as last week ;)

Murray - Djokovic

Safin - Federer (with both players playing their best tennis and injury free)

Nadal - Federer in the RG final (pressure on Nadal to defend his crown, pressure on Fed to hold all slams at once)

JMDP - Korolev in Sopot final :p (it's clay but i don't care)

what a bad luck i can't watch tennis matches on tv for 90% of the year so i can only read your impressions :awww: but maybe - maybe i can see the RG final and if, I wish it to be between Chucho Acasuso beating Rafael Nadal.

I wonder Blake is written off already by everybody here?

Anyway, for me it's Nadal VS Blake , hard court anywhere.

I'd like to see:

Henman vs Nadal @ Wimbledon
Murray vs Federer @ US Open
Nieminen vs Rusedski in an Exhibition (so no one gets knocked out of a tourney!)
Roddick vs Hewitt @ Wimbledon
And Finally... Federer vs Baghdatis Part 2 Anywhere

Federer-Santoro
Ah, yes, forgot about that one. :)It's already happened. :D

Federer d. Santoro, 7-6, 7-6, Doha, Hard.

I wouldn't mind actually seeing it. Perhaps as a rematch at USO?

I'd also like to see Roddick and Hewitt hook it up again to see if Cincy was a fluck or if the Duck has figured out the Potato. Was kinda hoping that would happen at San Jose...but...not to be compliments of a teenaged Scot.

Already happened more than one time but doesn't mean it wouldn't be a delight to see again :)

And hopefully Norm Chryst would be umpiring so that after it had lasted 5 hours, with every line call questioned, he was forced to retire because he was finally shown up as incompetent, short-sighted and lazy. What a bonus.

Yeah Coria Hewitt at Wimbledon or USO would do too.

Any of the young stars Berdych, Gasquet, Djokovic (he's gotta be looked forward to after this tourney - his expectations gotta be rising), Monfils, blah blah you know the drill.... vs. each other...
