    Well, Wimby this year certainly was something. The apocalyptic (God I love that word) amount of upsets, new faces in the semis and Murray getting that Wimbledon win for Scotland (written in a way which won't make F1Bob kill me...). Weirdly though, I caught none of the matches from the quarters and on...

    Wimbledon for its various surprises and upsets. Some sublime grass court tennis was exhibited in the first week. We were also treated with Del Potro verse Djokovic, a decent Verdasco run, some Dustin Brown magic, and a surprisingly serious Bernard Tomic.

    SF Djokovic-Del Potro was probably the best match of the year!!!

    Have to give it to Wimbledon. A very dramatic two weeks, with a British player winning the title by defeating the world number one on Center Court in the final.

    The USO for Wawrinka, Robredo and Nadal's performances.

    I agree 100%. Insane hitting. DelPo's forehand missiles...etc..etc. Absolutely one of the best matches I have ever seen actually.

    It was a privilege to watch Verdasco play well again at a slam

    Between Wimby and the Aussie for me. RG had one great match with a dud for a final and Murray missed it. The USO was only good for Djokovic/Wawrinka. Nadal-Djokovic was good but not great, and Nadal's matches were too predictable until the final.

    Aussie was pretty good for Djokovic-Wawrinka and Fed-Murray plus a good run in itself by Federer, and a half decent Djokovic-Murray final, but Nadal missed it.

    But Wimbledon was the best for the upsets and the great matches. Nadal-Darcis and Stak-Fed. Murray-Verdasco was interesting to say the least, and Djokovic-Delpo was nothing short of awesome, and Murray-Djokovic wasn't great, but the moment Murray won gives it the edge over the Aussie.

    Plus the women's side had the upset of Serena, and the eventual win from Bartoli.

    RG produced some good matches for a change. Hard question tbh. I'll think about it some more.

    The FO had two great matches, Djok/Nadal and Wawrinka/Gasquet. I agree Wimbledon was the best though.

    Wimbledon was the most entertaining and definitely the most unpredictable.
