What was the highest quality, most exciting match in two sets you've watched?

I nominate this extravaganza:

Nice Henin-Venus match.

Djokovic vs Federer at WTF 2012 was great drama, ballstriking and a fitting conclusion to the season. 7-6 (6), 7-5.

Fed blew a 5-3, 40-15 serving lead *again* and lost. (lol)

not sure if it was 2 sets
but there've been some good nalbandian-nadal matches in masters series before

He nearly beat Nadal in IW in 2009 but that was 3 sets and Nadal got a 6-0 set in the last.
He beat Nadal as well at Paris 2007 in a straight setter and in IW 12 they had another close match but again over 3 sets.

It's always a joy to watch the two masters play against each other, especially when David is in the mood:

2014 Shanghai SF was very enjoyable, and the highlights still show the match was played at high tempo and ditto level.
It also shows how aggressive Federer was under his hero Edberg's influence - and also how much more precise Novak's passing shots where back then. They have both declined a lot.

I don't recall him blowing a 5-3 40-15 lead.
It was 5-4 40-15 in 2nd set.
Fed surely choked this match, he was up a break in both sets and actually served for the 2nd set.
Looks like he's scared to cross the finish line against djok on important points since 2011 USO
