I think Roddick - El Aynaoui last year.

Me too. As soon as it was over, it made ESPN Classic. Do you know the magnitude of THAT accomplishment?

I'd put that one maybe at the top 10 of the list; but I think many people who has followed tennis for much more time, will come up with another ones from the past decades. Then I can't really give an opinion here, I just have 5 years following tennis.

I would say Borg/McEnroe Wimbledon Final 1980. So dramatic, so high quality, so much at stake, and a contrast of styles/personalities.

But I haven't seen every match, of course. There are plenty of others in contention, and Roddick/El Aynaoui is certainly one of them.

That was the first match that came to my mind when I saw the title...

No doubt the 4th set tie break is the greatest TB in history... it ended 20-18 to Mac, after something like 8 match points and 8 set points...
