People said that Federer vs Santoro was one of the best matches they've seen in a long time and it was one of the best of the tournament, but that was a week ago. Haven't watched yet, how does it rank among all these others?

I think that Blake vs Nadal should also be on that list.

Outta those ones, I'd probably choose the final and Agassi vs Malisse. Didn't see most of them, though. :sad:

Yep, I forgot about these:

-1st Rnd: Muller def. Roddick
-2nd Rnd: Agassi def. Karlovic
-2nd Rnd: Federer def. Santoro
-3rd Rnd: Blake def. Nadal

Too bad I can't put more than 10 choices on the poll;)

There were really a lot of great matches this year, but the one that I probably won't forget for a while is the Sanguinetti vs Srichaphan match. I only saw the last set of that match, but that was already enough. Not only did both men saved some incredible points on their serve to get to the breaker, but some more insane points in the breaker.

The reaction from the players played a huge role too: Srichaphan lying on the ground then turns around and does a few push-ups; Sanguinetti and Srichaphan both kissing the net; lob shot on break point against Sanguinetti's serve or something, then Srichaphan attempts a backhand crosscourt backhand passing shot and that clipped the tape to go over the net to give him another break point, etc.

All in all I think that was the best match I have seen during this USO.

Agassi vs Blake-if only because it went down to the last point in a 5th set tiebreak! I was on the edge of my seat! That is the fun of watching live sports.

Fed vs Santoro was absolutely fabulous! :hearts: :inlove: From the list here I chose Sanguinetti-Srichaphan, at the start of the match I never thought that it would turn out such a spectacle with such an amazing atmosphere and friendly spirit. :)
As a biased person I also liked Nadal vs Jenkins. :D The Jenkins kid was really impressive. :yeah:
