Any good classics (besides the Lendl 89 FO)
I want to check out my fellow Asian boy's game.
Chang - Edberg quarters US Open 1992 is the 5 set classic.
US open Quarter finals 93
Chang - Sampras
I like 5 setters
And while we're at this, recommend me some good Becker matches.
Fuuny i was just thinking about a Becker-Chang game where they played at a year end tourney....i forgot the name. I could be wrong but it's one of those Euro tourneys where they only have the singles line.
First 2 set of this match shows Chang's attacking game.
what happened after that?
It showed Chang's all court game. He was attcking net more and
even showed power baseline game. It appeared as if Chang was
going to scoring yet another win over Sampras. Then somewhere
late in the 2nd set, Sampras completely turned the table and got
into the ZONE. Absolute glorious tennis from Sampras.
Impossible shoe string volley. At one point, Sampras questioned
"out" call on his 1st serve at one point. Then he aced his 2nd serve
at exactly same spot. Sampras was in the ZONE. There's nothing
Chang could do. But Chang also showed amazing tennis first 2 sets.
It's an amazing match. I recommend for both Sampras and Chang fans.
It shows how boring today's baseline only tennis is.
DAMn some one upload that sh1t!
The one I've always wanted to watch but never got a chance to was Chang - Rios US Open QF's; the year Chang got destroyed by Rafter in the semi's. Rios wasn't quite a household name yet but that match seemed to take a lot out of Chang for the next round.
The highlights I've seen from that match featured spectacular shotmaking and retrieving skills from two incredibly fast guys.
I'd gladly like to know where to get this one.
I have it. Shoot me an email. I don't want to put up my website here.
The Edberg-Chang FO final was something to see! Also, the last match of Chang's career, the 2003 US Open 1st round against an up and coming Fernando Gonzalez was a real treat.
You want Chang & Becker. Watch 96 Aussie Open final---Becker rolls him but only a month and a half earlier Becker absolutelythumped the Chang'er in Hanover Gr for the Masters Series Champ.
Becker vs Sampras, 1996, ATP Tour Championship Final.
That match is listed as one of the Top Ten Matches of all time in Patrick McEnroe's book (Tennis for Dummies).
1997 was the first year they had the ATP year end championships @ Hannover.
1996 was the last year they had it @ Frankfurt Stadthalle....
in the '96 tourney Chang beat Sampras to play Becker in the final...
there's another match u might want to see....
Becker/Chang Aus Final. Chang got dismantled, abused. One of the prettiest matches I saw Becker play.
Yeah...it was painful to watch. Not that I am a Chang fan, I like to watch competitive/balanced matches. Anyway, one thing I liked about the match was Becker looked so calm (kinda Sad looking Becker).
Regarding Becker matches, I think 96 championship against Pete Sampras (RR and Final) are amazing. For Chang, I still think his FO final 89 is the best :mrgreen:
I agree about Becker's demeanor. Very cool. He said afterward that he wanted to get another Major for his new wife, Barbara.
Where can I find matches? Everytime I download a torrent it gets all crazy and it won't let me play it.
Becker played Sampras in 1996 year end champs.
Becker played Chang in 1995 yr end champs in Frankfurt
