Default Your favourite's 2004

OK, now that the season is pretty much over, time to look back over your favourite player's best and worst performance in 2004. Try to choose only one player and one each of his best/worst! That will make it a bit trickier if you're a Fed fan If you're a fan of several players, just choose one.

Schüttler best (not exactly spoilt for choice ): a close tie between the Olympic final and Monte Carlo. I'm going for Athens because winning a medal was his main target for the year and because it's only once every four years, while a TMS final is possible 9 times in a season. Despite the result, it was a great match, even if the tension was killing me
Worst: US Open R1, losing to Seppi despite being 2-0 up in sets and serving with 2 MPs. Beyond bad and pretty much symptomatic of his year

Kiwi's best: totally rocking ToJo in the 2nd and 3rd set in the third round match of the US Open... when did ToJo last lose two sets in one match 6-0 6-1?! .... Holy shit, that was damn strong, dominated him all over the court, I've watched is many times since then. ToJo didn't know anymore what's happening with him Definitely much stronger than his win over Safin which was also great, though.
(also worth mentioning: all the doubles matches that brought Kiwi and Rainer to the Olympic doubles finals)

Kiwi's worst: losing to TJ at Wimbledon after the 2nd rain delay and after being up 2-0 sets and and a break in the third set. The 3rd, 4th and 5th set were 6-4 6-3 6-0 in favour of Johansson That reminded me of the Kiwi in the last years, totally useless. He as normally a great grasscourt player could have done demage in Wimbledon.
(2nd choice: losing to Ulihrach 2-6 1-6 in Doha 1st round at the beginning of the year )

OK - my choices for David would be:-

Best: Beating Guga at Roland Garros this year - closely followed by him beating Marat in the same tournament.

Worst: Losing in straight sets to David Ferrer in the first round of Hamburg, - not only an abysmal performance but one of the coldest and most unpleasant days I have ever watched a live tennis match in

Default Re: Your favourite's 2004

Marats worst: His first round loss at the us open against Thomas Enqvist was the ultimative low hit. Couldnt get ANY worse. Overall the time after the AO until the clay season and after the clay season until us open.

Marats best: His quarterfinal (d Roddick) and semifinal (d Agassi) win at the Australien Open, his back to back masters series indoor titles... there his best matches were Madrid vs Agassi, and Paris vs Hewitt.

Agassi's best: Winning Cincinnati TMS, particularly the semi vs. Roddick.

Andre actually played extremely well in Australia, too, and could have made the final had a couple of points gone differently.

Agassi's worst: umm, his entire clay court season?

a tie between his straight set first round losses to Zimonjic in St. Poelten, and to Haehnel in Roland Garros.

Alex's Best: This is tough. The match he played against James Blake to get to his first non-Challenger QF in Newport. His entire week in Calabasas. Getting revenge on Karol Kucera in Prague to get to the SFs. And his match against Delgado in Burbank (not enough words to describe what watching this match was like)

Alex's Worst: This is also tough because Alex rarely plays a bad match. I can think of two disappointing ones. His SF in Prague (after beating Kucera he lost to a WC). The other one was his first round quallie match at Wimby where he put forth very little effort in the 3rd set.

Default Re: Your favourite's 2004

Hard to say for mantilla as i didnt see many of his matches so i will say gaudio

Best - Hewitt qf french open - Gaudio had two tight matches with lleyton in the past month or so leading upto RG. He totally destroyed lleyton and have him a claycourt lesson, and really dominated lleyton with his backhand.

hmmm worst = Probably his match against hewitt in the masters cup. I havent seen many of his other bad losses so hard to say

Calleri -

Best = His total smashing of baldy in miami, the first set was amazing and i think it has to be a nomination for one of the best single person performances of the year (during the first set)

worst - either of his two straight set losses in the davis cup. to voltchkov and El Aarej
