    I can imagine Hewitt playing Hewitt, one shouting "COME ON!!!" in each other's face after every point, that would be hilarious

    Borg vs Borg = The coolest match ever
    Davydenko vs Davydenko = None of them would win.
    Safin/Safin vs Safin/Safin = After the match there would only be one left standing.
    Gilbert vs Gilbert = Chess where no one would move.
    Chang vs Chang = The fastest match ever.
    Krajicek/Krajicek vs Krajicek/Krajicek = This might actually be a longer match than Nadal vs Nadal.

    Verdasco vs Verdasco

    will be possible soon when he is not top 10 anymore, because he is known to be unable to beat top 10 player.

    Connors vs Connors would either cause a massive fight or make everyone in the stadium mute.

    Gaudio vs Gaudio: The only match in history where both players lose. Of course they were both desperate even before stepping on court.

    Santoro vs Santoro: the linesmen have strokes and mental outbreaks during the match.

    Connors vs Connors: III World War.

    Verdasco vs Verdasco: Most neurotic behaviour registered on a tennis match ever.

    Nalbandian vs Nalbandian: by players agreement, match decided by flipping a coin. Then go to post-match buffet.

    Ivanovic vs Ivanovic: Oh god I'm a sicko.

    That would be Muster vs Muster and it's not even a contest. Nadal actually does get tired.

    Bartoli v. Bartoli-the most weirdest moves ever.
    Sanchez-Vicario v. Sanchez-Vicario-most action-packed match ever.

    Stepanek vs. Stepanek: loser becomes ugliest man to date attractive Czech tennis star; winner becomes ugliest man to date and marry even more attractive Czech tennis star.

    Surely Federer vs Federer depends on which versions of Federer turn up?

    If ******** and ******** turn up I don't think I could take it.
