You mean best finals...which would probably prevent it from being the best tournament as a whole, since the two finals people would have then basically carved everyone else to pieces.

I find it hard to judge a tournament as a whole. Do you only measure good matches, or do crappy matches take away from the tournament? What about something like Wimbly 2001 that hugely benefitted from Goran's run/Sampras' dethroning, but was marred by rain? Its easier for me to weigh in on matches.

mmm i dnt know
for me the best matches and tourneys are the ones when the non-obvious-to-win players beat the top players in a 3-5 set match xD
i like GS to be full of surprises so for me it would be awsome if some1 manages to beat nadal or fed in the final or before!
then maybe it would be the best F.O ever
but still a few matches to watch so u never it may happen :D

best RG for ever,i don't know, me too
but we watched good matchs like: nadal-phm ; black-monfils or gasquet-nalbandian (witout 4th set)
the first week showed some good match,it's a good rg this year (for me)
but like conita, i hope some surprises...

has some potential from the QF line up, but no GS will ever top last year's US Open

for me the best GS event was Wimby 2000... I think its obvious why :)

My favourite GS events in recent memory are:

AO '05 - Good tournament and simply great match between Fed and Safin.
US Open '05 - Fantastic tournament. Best match. Blake - Agassi
Wimby '01 - Many great matches. Fed - Sampras, Tim - Goran and Rafter - Goran.

because of this ?

Pete Sampras didn't let anything rain on his day of infamy Sunday. After several rain delays, Sampras defeated Patrick Rafter 6-7 (10-12), 7-6 (7-5), 6-4, 6-2 for his record seventh Wimbledon singles title and 13th Grand Slam win.
