:worship:Reed’s tennis awards for 2011
Best match to commentate on
It was a match at Wimbledon which really stuck with me, between Grigor Dimitrov and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. It was a fantastic encounter, and one of immense quality and excitement.
The two players embraced each other for several seconds at the end of the match, and it was most definitely the highest quality clash in the tournament. The crowd rose to their feet with a standing ovation, and that was quite fitting.
Dimitrov has so much potential and, while he may fail to truly live up to what is expected of him, on this occasion he was truly brilliant.
The shots he produced against Tsonga in that match were thrilling to watch and Tsonga was taken aback by how inspired his opponent's play was. It was a quite staggering performance.
I can recall the most incredible rallies: brutal hitting, remarkable saves, thunderous serves; it had absolutely everything. Many people were just left to laugh at how good it was because they could not quite believe it.
