Skipping over the usual dribble of what a decade is usually driven by those who think they know all about mathematics and history put together, and that year 0 never existed (which is true), we have the honorable task to select the best match across these fine 10 years of tennis.

So, go ahead and nominate, then we can have a poll with the popular selections.

Again, this is for the 2010s decade, not for the 202nd decade.

Nominate away.

Djokovic - Nadal USO Final 2011, the level was insane from both men, the shotmaking, the athleticism, the sheer battle. AO 2012 wasn't even 50% as good as this one.

Murray - Djokovic USO 2012 final

Just about everyone thought Murray was going to lose another slam final. The haters would have been wetting themselves with excitement when it went back to 2-2 only for The Transcender to demolish No2e in the 5th.
Epic match. Epic result. Slamray was born.

Nadal def. Djokovic 2013 FO

Del Potro def. Nadal Beijing 2013

Djokovic def. Del Potro 2013 WB SF 2013

2014 is prett forgettable

Maybe Djokovic def. FEDERER WB

2015- Wawrinka def Djokovic , Fo

2016.....

2017 Federer def Nadal Ao

2018 Djokovic def. NADAL WB

2019 Tstsipas def. Wawrinka FO

Wawrinka def. Fucsovic IW R3. I watched this live and Wawrinka come on'd at me directly. He played Stanimal level tennis and I stupidly decided to watch Fognini and Djokovic play doubles.

Djokovic def. FEDERER Wb

Well....I will be honest, AO 13 WAWA NOLE was sexy asf, 5 sets of madness. №1 for sure
Rafa Nole WIM18 also worth mention, very high quality match. Wim 19 F lower quality, but the clutchest performance i've ever seen, considering surface and opponent.
So qualitywise :
1 - AO13 Wawa Nole
2 - WIM18 Rafa Nole
3 - USO 11 Rogie Nole
4 - WIM19 Rogie Nole

Also worth mention,but not to be the match of the decade:
RG13 SF, RG11 SF, AO17 F,AO17 SF Dimi Rafa


Btw,these all are BO5. What about BO3?
Rafa Murray WTF 10 and Rogie Nole WTF 12
