Sadly watching Nieminen playing at 800% against Hass at the 2013 AO was probably the most memorable match I've seen live. Sitting next to Hewitt =legend and his peeling sunburn the entire time might have added that extra spark to the experience as well.

Nadal - Thiem, 2016 Buenos Aires. MP for Rafa, Dominic seving 4-5 40-Adv and saves it with a ridiculous inside out FH. Rafa was facepalming as in 'what the hell was that' (like most of us in the crowd really). Unreal clay masterclass from start to finish.

Fed Cilic Wimbledon F - I will never forget Roger won his 20th slam while I was on the fifth row with him serving in front of me.

Cilic Fed Wimbledon QF 2016 A super nerve-wrecking turnaround for Roger. I almost died of heart attack.

Nadal Djokovic Wimbledon SF 2018 man, this one is an absolute thriller. So sad we all had to leave at 11pm due to curfew.

Djokovic Wawrinka RG F - no one expected the Swiss to win. The way he did was just breathtaking. It was as loud as a football match.

Mischa Zverev def. Steve Johnson Eastbourne 2018

I got to watch a masterclass of Grass tennis and witness a player have a true meltdown.

Steve Jonson def. Medvedev, Eastbourne 2018.

I single handily pissed off Medvedev. Was the funniest thing ever. He kept on glaring at me :lol: . All I did was heavily cheer for Steve and was the most vocal fan in the whole stadium. I shouted "GO USA" and got a terrible stare.

Is there anyone who had a chance to witness live the legendary 2009 RG Soderking upsetting Nadal?

This was once in a lifetime opportunity to see life a player destroying a prime clay monster on his home mud of PC. I'd pay much money to be there that day.

Live, or in person? People seem to be taking the question as in person.

2013 Wimbledon Stakhovsky beating Federer in the 2nd round! Brilliant match from Stakhovsky- totally outplayed his opponent.

2012 Queens final where Cilic beat Nalbandian after Nalbandian kicked the linesman!

2014 Wimbledon 3rd round Nadal beat Kukushkin in 4 sets

2014 Wimbledon 4th round Djokovic beat Tsonga in 3 exciting sets.

2015 Wimbledon 4th round Djokovic beat Anderson in that 5 setter.

2016 WTF semis- Murray beat Raonic in a thriller.

2017 RG 4th round -Nadal beat Bautista Agut- crushed him, but it was great to watch a Nadal match at RG.

2018 Wimbledon 2nd round Mackenzie Macdonald beat Nicolas Jarry in a thrilling 5 setter- 11-9 in the 5th set!

No words can describe the jealousy that I have towards you.

The most memorable match I saw in person was Isner vs Mahut at Wimbledon (not the whole thing obviously). It was the end of the first day of the match and they were in the 5th set. A big crowd had gathered around the balcony area around court 18 which is where I was. The match was awful. I only stuck around to see the winning reaction of whoever would win. Little did I know I was a good 80 or so games away from seeing that. I eventually succumbed to boredom and left long before they called it for darkness. A complete waste of my precious time but at least it was a memorable waste of my precious time :shrug:

I have watched a number of matches live, in person over the years, but the 2 that stick to my mind are

1. Krajicek beating Sampras in Wimbledon in the quarterfinal of 1996 Wimbledon 7-5, 7-6, 6-4 over 2 days- rain stopped the match at 1-1 in the 3rd set. This was the biggest shock in those days.

2. The only grand slam final I have ever watched live- Gaudio beating Coria at the 2004 French final 0-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1, 8-6- this can only be called as an open air psychology session!

Monfils vs Robredo at the 2013 FO was a lot of fun.
