The happen chance Guy Forget magic happened to make Murray vs. Wawrinka R1 of a GS.

This made me think.

What are some of the most high quality R1 matches for Grand slams?

Nalbandian-Hewitt R1 in 2011 was pretty epic, better than the one-sided final for sure.

Actually many times, you see there are many slam finals where match was finished in three set while nearly every slam has atleast one first round whicd go to five set and can be very entertaining,like Wimbledon 2010 ,final was three set affair but all big three was tested with five set match in first round.
Edit Rafa played five set in second round not in first

Magical only by reputation, the match itself will probably be a shitfest.
