    What are the best tiebreakers that everyone can think of within the past decade or so?

    The two that I can think of are the 4th set tiebreaker in the Wimbledon 2008 final and the first set tiebreaker between Djokovic and Dolgopolov in the 4th round of last years Open,

    Any other really cool ones?

    Best of all time Borg/McEnroe (W. 1980, 4th Set)

    I like the third set tiebreak in the 2008 Wimbledon quarter final between Schuettler and Clement. Schuettler led 6-0 in the tiebreak and Clement got it back to 6-6, before Schuettler won it 8-6.

    Federer-Safin 2nd set tiebreaker at the 2004 TMC
    Federer won the tie-break 20-18 to win the match.
