Are you really calling the USO final epic? Or are you just looking at the duration?

From what I know, first Nole was missing, then Murray lost his way for 2 sets, and then suddenly Nole again disappeared. What was epic about that ? (Disclaimer: i missed set 1, heard there was an epic TB)

I think Nole's slam matches against Fed in 2011 (FO and USO) were much more epic than any match he had in 2012.

Yes, the final wasn't that great at all.
Instead, a lot of frustration caused by the wind that I could see on Nole's face. When the wind stopped blowing so hard, he won 2 sets that made the final a 5 setter, but not really a big spectacle.
US '11 Semi was epic though :).
