    I have two nominations:

    1) Stosur v Azarenka - the last set was a minor classic.

    2) Ferrer v Tipsarevic - plenty of ebbs and flows, fine shot-making.

    Others?

    Ferrer vs. Tipsy was awesome. Highest tennis quality of the event by far.

    Djokovic vs Del Potro was of very high quality, despite the one-sided scoreline.

    Tipsarevic-Ferrer - no contest

    Azarenka-Serena

    all in all the USO was pretty boring

    Kohlscreiber - Isner is a close second IMO. Good, high quality match.

    I didn't see them all, but the women's final set was very high level and competition. Some amazing winners being hit.

    Has to be Ferrer against Tipsy, although Gulbis' comeback vs Haas was also pretty epic.

    Agreed. That second set in particular was a beauty.

    Djokovic - Delpo was the highest quality by a purely technical/shotmaking measure, but the Ferrer-Tipsaravic was closer and had more drama with almost the same high quality.

    No women's matches were even close, really.

    If you wanted to see amazing doubles, then the last game of the Bryans/Stepankek-Paes was absolutely incredible. The Bryans stole 3 out of the 4 points they won in the game.

    Ferrer-Tipsy, Azarenka and Stosur last set was very dramatic. Novak-Del Potro second set was probably the best thing of the whole tournament, but I didn't like the first and third sets as much.

    +1 for Ferrer-Tipsy. I ended up getting to bed past 3AM, I just couldn't stop watching.
