    Hasn't been a year for epic finals, but I would go with Wimbledon 2013 just out of drama and the fact that it was probably the most competitive of the 3. Also, I'm biased :)

    The Nadal/Djokovic French Open semifinal and Djokovic/Del Potro Wimbledon semifinal were the highlights of the Grand Slams so far this year but in terms of my favourite final? Don't know. Can't say I was riveted by any of them.

    The Djokovic/Del Potro Wimbledon semifinal is definitely my favourite match of the year so far, though. By far.

    All 3 put me to sleep (well 2 actually), I didn't even bother to watch the FO final and half of the Wimbledon final. Blowouts and snoozefests all round.

    Great grasscourt lesson from Murray. Masterclass.

    AO: Djokovic-Wawa (Murray-Federer was pretty great too)
    RG: Nadal-Djokovic
    W: Djokovic-delPo

    These were the memorable matches. Best of the finals themselves? Slim pickings.

    One of the few polls were I would have voted "Connors in 5".

    Hasn't happened yet. I can't decently vote for a Murrovic or a RG final with Nadal and guest star Ferrer (of all players) to be destroyed. I dislike none of these players, but seriously, no. I liked the Wawrinka-Gasquet at RG though (although the result didn't please me), as well as the Wawrinka-Djokovic at AO. Djokovic-Del Potro at SW19 was alright I guess, still more entertaining than the final IMO.

    Voted wimbly Murrovic. AO was one of the most boring matches between the top 4 I have seen and RG went exactly as expected.

    Didn't Djoko do like 60 UE. Murray didn't win that match, Djokovic lost it.

    Semi finals have been better than the finals this year, no?

    Wimbledon, because Murray won it and there was a rather interesting final game.

    Other than that, it's been a bit of a snoozefest so far.

    Federer coming 2 sets down and saving 4 match points to beat Djokovic in the US Open final, then ripping his shirt and letting out a twenty second roar in Djokovic's face. That will be my fave moment.

    Looking forward to Cincannati, to see what type of final that gives us, before I decide which is the best slam final.

    AO for the overall atmosphere, RG for the phenomenal clash between Nadal and Djoko and Nadal's historical feat. W for the craziest upsets.

    ETA: I was talking about the whole tournament. The greatest final was the Nadal/Djoko match at RG... even though it was not a final. Blame the stupid draw. Best actual final was AO so far but I think the USO one could easily surpass it.

    yes there was a rare interesting game in the final where Novak finally seemed to play his actual tennis, not the fake staged act of the previous 30 games...
