15th January, AUSTRALIAN OPEN, 1R: JF.Tsonga wins tie-break against A.Roddick 20-18 and equals world record in singles (main level). Roddick won the match 6-7(18) 7-6(2) 6-3 6-3.

2nd February, VINA DEL MAR, QF: N.Massu saves 7 match points (the most this year) against S.Roitman in three games (3:5*, 4:5, 5:6). Final score: Massu 0-6 7-6(3) ret. :retard:

1st March, LAS VEGAS, RR: JM.del Potro retires against J.Blake in the final RR match and this result makes a lot of confusion with the rules - E.Korolev advances to QF, later Blake instead of Korolev, then Korolev plays in QF - finally RR tournaments are banned after this ridiculous situation :eek:

12th March, INDIAN WELLS, 2R: R.Federer loses a match to "lucky loser" G.Canas 5-7 2-6 -> first Federer's defeat after 41 straight wins. A couple days earlier Canas lost to A.Waske :unsure:

3rd May, ESTORIL, 1R: A.Montanes/R.Ramirez-Hidalgo def. S.Aspelin/F.Cermak 7-6(2) 1-6 [23-21] after saving 5 match points. The longest "champions tie-break" in history - previous longest was [18-16].

16th May, HAMBURG, 2R: C.Moya beats T.Berdych 3-6 7-5 7-6(6) - 17th winning match in a row for "Lord Carlos" after deciding tie-break set.

29th May, ROLAND GARROS, 1R: P.Kohlschreiber beats L.Dlouhy 6-2 3-6 7-5 4-6 17-15 - the most games of the fifth set in history of Roland Garros.

29th June, WIMBLEDON, 3R: A.Roddick breaks Sampras' record in most tie-breaks wins in a row after defeating F.Verdasco 6-3 6-4 7-6(2). Roddick had won also another tie-break - against Mathieu (despite 0:5 & 3:6) but then lost 5 consecutive tie-breaks :devil:

4th July, WIMBLEDON, 3R: A.Sa/M.Melo def. P.Hanley/K.Ulyett 5-7 7-6(4) 4-6 7-6(7) 28-26 after saving 4 match points in the 5th set and 22 service games to stay in the match
Three new record of the Open Era in doubles:
- the most games in all (102)
- the most games in a 5th set (54)
- the longest match in Grand Slam (6:13 h)

6th July, WIMBLEDON, QF: N.Djokovic beats M.Baghdatis 7-6(4) 7-6(9) 6-7(3) 4-6 7-5 - Djokovic equals record of the most winning tie-breaks in one tournament - 8.

27th July, KITZBUHEL, QF: P.Starace wins two matches day after day after saving MP on return in the 2nd set (F.Mayer, A.Seppi).

28th July, INDIANAPOLIS, QF: S.Querrey def. J.Blake 7-6(6) 6-7(4) 7-6(4). Querrey serves 10 aces in a row at the beginning of the final set!

31st July, SOPOT, 1R: S.Koubek wins a match against A.Calleri from 0-6 0:4 down after losing 21 consecutive games (in a previous match against Kollerer, Koubek lost 11 games in a row from 4:1 up). :shrug:

5th August, WASHINGTON, SF: J.Isner beats G.Monfils 6-7(4) 7-6(1) 7-6(2) to win 5th consecutive match after final set tie-break - obviously new record.

9th August, MONTREAL, 2R: David Nalbandian defeats David Ferrer 7-6(4) 6-1 and Ferrer becomes in a mysterious way a famous "Pics" :sad: :confused: on the MTF and starts to play the best tennis of his life ;)

12th August, MONTREAL, F: N.Djokovic def. R.Federer 7-6(2) 2-6 7-6(2). Djokovic becomes the first player since Boris Becker at Stockholm in 1994 to defeat the Top 3 players in the ATP Rankings at the same tournament (Roddick 3, Nadal 2, Federer 1).

31st August, US OPEN, 2R: N.Djokovic beats R.Stepanek 6-7(4) 7-6(5) 5-7 7-5 7-6(2). The record of the most games (63) at US Open was equaled.

23rd September, Davis Cup (Playoffs): D.Sela def. F.Gonzalez 4-6 7-6(5) 5-7 7-6(7) 6-3 after 5 hours 1 minute. Two days earlier, Sela defeated N.Massu after 5 hours 7 minutes -> the longest match of the year, only a four-setter :)crazy:)... Isreal overcomes Chile and advances to the World Group.

21st October, MADRID, F:: "Fat Dave" Nalbandian (25 ATP) turns to "Fit Dave" after beating three best players (Nadal, Djokovic, Federer) in a row! In the 2nd round Nalbandian was on the edge of defeat - he was losing 4-6 0:4 to Berdych!

25th October, LYON, 2R: O.Rochus def. M.Fish 6-7(5) 7-6(6) 7-6(15) - the most tie-break points in a three set match in history -> 47. Fish served 43 aces - the most in a three set match since 1995.

27th October, BASEL, SF: J.Blake & M.Knowles needed 13 match points to beat P.Hanley/K.Ullyett 7-5 6-7(5) [12-10]... Blake wasted in 2007 (singles) also 13 MP's in losing matches (5 against Karlovic and ToJo, 3 against Haas). He was so close of losing unbelievable 26 match points within one year :lol:

Thanks Voo!

Another great achievement was Tsonga, the oft injured player, for some reason entering two tournaments at once and winning 3 matches in 1 day this summer. I don't quite remember the circumstances, it may have been that one tournament was a challenger and the other was the qualifying rounds in an ATP tournament that was starting the next week. I believe two of the matches went 3 sets.

Love how some people must find a negative in an obviously very entertaining thread.
Hold still, lemme grab that stick out of your ass.
:cool:
There was never a stick in my ass and never will.

Maybe your lack of respect dont ley you see something obvious: the thread was made yesterday and there is no reference to the incredible tournament that Nalbandian won in París recently. The thread must be all subjective you want, but there is no way to avoid this point when we are talking about "The most interesting moments of the ATP Tour 2007"
