    Might have been posted already but this match is just a classic. Andre was in the zone and demolished McEnroe in stunning fashion. Good for some McEnroe outburts and antics, and some fun stuff like the umpire getting the score in a game wrong and not realizing it, and Mac finally rightfully concedes the game.

    BB explains his sabbatical (that became his retirement).

    He states his intention to resume playing "many more years in tennis" in 1982 (about 25.30 minutes in).

    This juanpradotennis guy - who uploaded the above video - is such an annoying thief. Steals other people's uploads and does not give them credit.

    I saw the first set of that Suntory Cup final; Vilas had some errors; played I think one great point; then it´s unbelievable how Borg won it so quickly; if I´m right this was between Montecarlo and Madrid; in the best moment of Vilas in 1982, he had won also Rotterdam and Milan-beating Connors in both tournaments-; once Vilas said one of his best matches was against McEnroe in Tokyo; I think that was in that Suntory Cup; then definitely Vilas was in a great moment; he had beaten Borg in their previous meeting. It was a big chance to try to beat Borg. Vilas looked really dissapointed at the end, during the trophy ceremony.

    Only 1:10 of highlights of that famous 1973 Davis Cup doubles match between Australia (Laver-Newcombe) and the US (Smith-van Dillen).

    Not exactly and oldie, but definitely a goodie. Two of my all-time favorites squaring off at my home tournament. A young Gonzo taking out an in-form Agassi at the 2003 Legg Mason (now the Citi Open) in Washington, D.C. Andre used to own the Legg Mason, having won it five time. But the punishing forehand of Fernando Gonzalez was too much for him in this semi-final match. Tim Henman went on to defeat Gonzo in the final.

    Quite the boring match all in all, especially the 1st set. Thankfully, it picked up a little bit. Edberg played a very efficient match against a sub-par Wilander. Dominant on serve.

    Shame the Citi Open doesn't get matches like this anymore. What's the best match you've seen there?

    I moved to D.C. ten years ago so that's why I call it my home tournament (though I grew up in New Jersey). In those years, I'd say the 2009 DelPo v. Roddick final was a great 3-setter, definitely the best final post-Agassi.
