    Wimby 08/09 are two matches I was literally standing up screaming at the TV in excitement.

    As a Tsonga fan, seeing his comeback at Wimby this year, particularly sets 4 and 5, I was going nuts.

    Also Roddick vs Tursunov in Davis Cup a few years back, Roddick lost 16-14 or something in the 5th.

    You forgot one...Roddick/Younes AO QF.

    The thread title "game" reference made me believe I would be evaluating different pro player styles...if that were the case, Santoro gets my vote.

    +1 for this.

    Also Nadal vs Verdasco 2009 AO SF and of course staying up through the rain delays in the ealy hrs of the morning for the Wimbledon 08 final are my fav tennis watching experiences.

    This year AO Federer vs Simon 2nd round.
    Being a Simon fan I was so excited when he took sets 3 and 4. I sat through the entire 5 sets cheering. Even though I wasn't happy with how it turned out I still thought it was a very entertaining match.

    For women probably Dementieva vs Serena in Wimbledon (2009?)
    It was really close match and both girls were playing their best tennis.

    Roddick vs Younes.

    There's something special being 8 and watching an AO night match on a terrible TV somewhere in Sweden.

    Not the most entertaining in history or anything but watching Nalbandian take a big dump all over the "Genius" of Federer in Paris 2007 was a sight to behold. LOL! Watching that match, you'd think Nalbo was the umpteen time Slam champ and Federer was merely a mug. Federer got slapped around all over the court. Madrid 2007 final was fun too as Federer was looking foolish and being owned.

    Best match I've seen live? Gerulaitis-Kriek '79 USO QF. Tight 4-setter with two of the best movers of that era. VERY entertaining match, plus I got courtside box seats behind their benches!

    even tho fed-santoro was a straight sets win it was incredibly entertaining.
    imagine that one having gone to 5 now that wouldve been something
