worst match was sweeting vs. nishikori in houston final.

Tennis is still trying to recover from that travesty.

While Rafa-Djokovic's 6 finals all had drama in them, I'd have to say Rogie vs. Djokovic USO SF was the best of 2011 and then in second place, Rogie vs. Djokovic in the 2011 FO SF.

I clearly remember sitting through the nearly 4 hour battle between Rogie and Djokovic and Rogie having the two match points, just like in the 2010 USO SF and blowing them both again and again losing 7-5 in the 5th set. Although Rogie lost both matches to Djokovic, they both proved how great the 29/30-year-old Rogie is, that one has to usually play the match of their life to beat him (i.e. 2008 W and 2009 AO Finals, Rafa over Rogie).

To sum it up, the 2011 USO SF was one the best battles I've seen since watching tennis for nearly a decade now (since early 2002 really). Rafa-Verdasco 2009 AO SF, Rogie-Rafa 2006 Rome F, they were classics too. Any match that lasts 4 hours or more is exciting, some great W matches too (2009 F Rogie over Roddick and 2011Isner over Mahut, 3 days and 11 hours, 5 minutes). Heck, even Rogie and Rafa's 2011 FO F was great, 4 sets, 3hours and 40 minutes and their best FO matchp ever. Seems like a lot of the great matches involve Rogie, Rafa, and/or Djokovic in some way, shape, or form.

we can all agree that Nole-Fed matches always have the best quality
No intresting but not always best quality, the only match where they both played really well the entire time was in Australia.

The single best in terms of tactics, quality everything was Rome with Andy.

Methinks hatred for Fed clouded your judgment has.

For me, best matches of the year:
Nole vs Fed, RG semifinal.
Mugray vs Nole, Rome (semi?)
Nole vs Rafa, USO.

There were a couple of thrillers with Tsonga, e.g.:
Tsonga vs Nadal, Queen's,
Tsonga vs Fed, Wim,
Tsonga vs Fed, Mtl,
(Tsonga vs Nadal at WTF wasn't quite as good, but similar stuff)

Not the best tennis, but upsets, and some brilliant attacking tennis (rare, and nice to see these days).

It was cool to see Sexy win a tourny this year, but it wasn't the finest tennis ever.

That one match where Murray beat Federer was pretty good too.
OH WAIT :rolleyes:

Quality at best in RG between Fed and Nole even tho Nole choked a bit but tennis was awesome...and most thriling is their USO semi by far.
