So earlier I created another thread for the BO5 matches here https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/best-bo5-matches-in-2016.575863/
Poll will include any match that I think belongs there and I am open to suggestions.

My list goes like this:
1)Djokovic-Nishikori Rome SF: after a lackluster 1st set from Djokovic(who straingly hit himself with the racquet head) the level of play just took off resluting in absolutely brutal last 2 sets and probably the best shotmaking match we had this year

2)Nadal- Del Po Olympics semi: popular choice as it seems and no wonder why;dramatic,high quality dramatic match between two resurgent players in a high profile tournament;one of the many great matches Del Potro won this year

3)Nishikori-Monfils Miami QF: I am not sure how many have a clear memory of this one,but it deserves his place on this list; both guys played very well for their standard and the ending was absolutely brilliant with Nishikori saving 4 MP being nearly unplayable(final scoreline 4-6 6-4 7-6(3) )

4) Djokodal in Rome: reminding everyone of the good old days between the two,the best 2 setter this year and would have probably been the best match if it went to 3; arguably the highest level of play from the entire list

Honorable mentions to Nadal-Monfils in MC and Murray-Djokovic in Madrid
So overall the season's peak in BO3 revolves around the clay masters.

Nadal-Del Potro, and it's not even close. Only crazy Djokovic fanatics can say that the match against today's Nadal who is so awful that can't even convert five setpoints on serve was a good match.
But picking the match where Del Potro played the same guy "today's Nadal" is totally fine...
