    Fed v. Agassi US 04 (their 5 set QF)

    This was a low quality match. Particularly the second day which was played in extremely gusty conditions. Ugly tennis.



    The first two sets a blow out for Blake, then for Agassi. The last set was good stuff. Not a classic.

    Opps, I was referring to Agassi-Blake. Overhyped that one.

    The greatest match that I've ever seen- Nadal def. Federer Wimbledon 2008

    The greatest display of tennis on any surface that I've seen- Pete Sampras, 1999 Wimbledon final against Andre Agassi

    Sharapova vs Henin WTA champ 07 was pretty damn good.


    2 of my favourites "Federer vs Nadal" rarely mentioned are the Dubai final and the TMC semifinal in 2006.

    Ferrero vs agassi US open semifinal 2003 was a good match too.

    Thank You!


    I was thinking nobody was going to mention it!!! That actually was the last win of Agassi and incredibly fun match to watch, it was a battle under the lights with very amazing performance from both players. A delight to watch, i actually have it recorded ....
