Where does the Djokovic - Wawrinka AU 2013, 2014 & US open 2013 matches rank all time

Personally, I dont believe that many give the AU 2013, 2014 & US OPEN 2013 matches between Djokovic - Wawrinka the respect and admiration that they should get. These three matches rank among the greatest matches of all time..more so the AU 2013 match is definetly top ten of all time..

Furthermore, Djokovic against Wawrinka in Grand Slams is 3 - 1..how do you see this rivalry going in the future..will wawrinka upset djokovic in future slams espeially at the french if they meet?

USO '13 and AO '14 were pretty horrible matches.

AO '13 was the only good one.

The 2013 AO match is miles ahead of the other two. Arguably the best match of the decade so far.

Agree with you about 2013 AO. It was great. USO 2013 was decent, AO 2014 was meh.

AO 2013 was great. Definitely belongs on the "greatest matches this decade" list.

As for the other two, I appear to have blocked USO 2013 from my brain, although I watched every point. AO 2014 was okay, but neither of them was really on at the same time until the fifth set. That's the only set I'd really rewatch, I think. (Although I <i>haven't</i> rewatched it, so maybe I'm misremembering?)

And as for how the rivalry will go in future - I think Djokovic will still probably win the majority of their matches, but it'll be closer than it was. So, say, 3 matches for Novak to every 2 for Stan. (And Novak almost surely wins any matches on grass.)

I would be careful to call it Top 20 of all time, talking about AO 2013 it is surely one of the better matches of the decade.

It depends a little on the taste. If you prefer huge contrast of styles etc.

IMO matches before the SF never get enough credit, maybe for a reason

AO 2013 is definitely the best match in recent years. I don't think it's underrated by anyone... Quite well known as an awesome match.

The other 2 are good matches no doubt, but not in that one's caliber.

AO 2013 was brilliant, just a shame the real winner got robbed by a line judge

USO 2013 was absolute joke of match, Wawrinka was double faulting and missing easy shots like there is no tommorow, Djokovic in full pushing mode...Horrible and disgusting match.

What's AU?

All-time great matches should involve two players playing some good and attractive tennis, so the exact opposite to the Serb's usual pushing and grinding rubber wall game style.
