I think if abmk sees this he won't sleep. He'll probably pull out a stat sheet to try and prove you wrong...
By "best match," I mean the match itself, not Federer's individual level of tennis. Federer played very well, and so did Nadal, but what made the match great was that they both played at a high level and
their levels were so close to each other. It was high quality, and nail-bitingly close. That's what makes a great tennis match.
