    Must confess I don't watch any of these matches; I do admire them for their talent and I am sure they are all fantastic tennis players, but somehow watching them slug it out endlessly is just too tiresome :(

    At the moment, Nadal vs Djokovic. I suspect that come next year I will enjoy them again. It's just we've had so many in the past 2 years.

    Nadal v. Djokovic. Neither player EVER forces the issue during the point. The difference being that Djokovic will take Nadal's defensive grinding and simply redirect with more pace until Rafa just can't get to the ball. Murray is a defensive player, but WILL become offensive when there's an opening. On a slow hard court therefore, Nadal v. Djokovic will simply last for forever......as we've seen twice already.

    They're all of considerable interest, though it depends somewhat on the surface.
    But the sameness can get a little dull - too much baselining.
    Some S/V would be wonderful from time to time.

    All of them can get dull, but the most dull match-up is Murray Nadal.

    I can't watch Nadal v Djokovic. I feel like I may be alone here, but I get bored after the first set. If the match is on clay, I'll catch the highlights.

    Murray vs. Djokovic.

    Nobody ever hits the ball until after the 1st set.
