    I know many will disagree with this, but I hold Agassi/Rios '98 Lipton Final high up in my mind's tennis match log. Incredible shotmaking from both sides and a guy who beat the hype bloody.

    Hard one ... hard one... "92 US Open - Chang-Edberg - 5 sets - beyond belief contrast in styles with all the intricacy and patterns that all that implies - argueably both at their peaks, also... Yes Chang was up a break in the fifth...

    Pancho Gonzalez versus Ted Shroeder Forest Hills. Pancho came from 2 sets down. May be before some of your time.

    My vote goes to W90 final. Edberg - Becker. Oh, the drama.... And it was the final chapter in the Edberg/Becker trilogy.

    Seen from the perspective of Edberg fans it was like a perfect drama trilogy. Tipped to lose hero wins, against the odds, minor victory in Act 1, gets ass kicked in Act 2, and, from the brink of defeat, wins final victory after humongous battle in Act 3. Hey, Edberg even looks a little like Skywalker, doesn't he? And Becker...well...

    I'd put Lendl-Cash semi at the Open in '84 way up there.

    In more recent times, I think either of the Agassi-Rafter Wimby semi's are fantastic.

    The Federer-Hewitt Davis Cup semi last year was something special.

    I missed Jen Jen and JHH at the Open last year and by all accounts I missed a great one.
