    Drama + QUALITY tennis = Djokerer.

    But I still feel, at this stage Djokovic has the edge.

    Dologopolov vs Tsonga is good. They've played each other 5 times and only once has a match been won in straight sets.

    Both their matches in majors went to 5 sets, terrific stuff.

    Federer vs Murray is interesting too. Hopefully we get a Fed-Murray semi at RG. :)

    Have to say Djokovic vs Federer. Those toe-to-toe rallies they produce, pure gold.

    I think Federer and Djokovic matches have more drama than quality. They both hit boatloads of UEs. When one is playing great, the other one is thinking about how to solve the global energy crisis.

    During the later stages of their matches, one guy hits an insane winner or two that becomes viral

    2008: Federer hit the jump smash lob
    2009: Federer hit a tweener
    2010: Djokovic saved 2 MPs with winners
    2011: Djokovic saved a MP with a huge winner.

    Djokovic vs Murray is highly entertaining to me.

    Never know what's going to happen(see AO 2012 SF)

    I don't find Djokovic vs Murray to be that good, they've played 13 times and only 3 of those time have they played a deciding set.

    Last years Rome and this years Australian Open are exceptions to the rule (admittedly they were bloody exceptional! :D).

    well Novak has the edge against everyone atm. Roger is not getting any younger but he is still fantastic.

    HUGE LOL at that post about Azarenka/Sharapova. I'm still laughing. It's like who can out-scream whom, hahaha

    well, in slams we do know what's going to happen (Djokovic). I like both guys, don't get me wrong. in masters it's a toss up, you never know. I do like watching their matches too :).

    True, the top 3 have the mental edge over Murray unfortunately.

    I would really love to see a 5-set final with Murray winning. He'd probably cry too. :)

    Djokovic-Federer is currently the most entertaining match up I think.

    Djokovic-Nadal also seems to be becoming a great matchup again thanks to the AO spectacle and Nadal finally getting a win over him again.

    Djokovic vs Federer for reasons stated before
    Djokovic vs Dolgopolov because of the contrast, Djokovic who can seem to play the exact same rally many times during a match vs Dolgo who never seems to hit the ball the same way twice. Even knowing the likely outcome I can't seem to stop watching
