    1. Federer's speech at this year's AO (Yes guys, Fed actually has a Slam this year, I know hard to believe), it was a stark contrast from last year's tearful loss against Nadal.. and it was also sad to see Murray's tears for not being able to win for his country.

    2. Isner defeating Mahut - the only time I actually jumped from my seat to applaud a player winning a match [I would have done it last year if Roddick would have beat Fed in the W final]

    3. Berdych defeating Federer, and in a more long term aspect obtaining the aspect of his game that has prevented his amazing physical body from getting him to potential top 5: consistency. Plus, some may think Fed is on his big decline, but he still has a Slam this year, so I'll wait till next year before making a serious assumption.

    4. Nadal winning Roland Garros - something which we haven't seen for 2 years, tennis just didn't seem right without him being Champ.

    5. Nadal winning Wimbledon [ I couldn't think of a legit fifth, lol]. This assured men's tennis that there was still a dominant figure to take Fed's thrown [people questioned Nadal's knees and his ability to compete on anything clay]

    My very biased ones:

    1) Davydenko def Nadal: 0-6 7-6 (8) 6-4: Choking, comebacks, and fighting spirit, somehow also in a quality match with a miracle comeback for my player being the result

    2) Berdych and Soderling beat Federer: At long last, the guard has surely changed.

    3) Ljubicic winning a 1000: It felt good to have him get one at last, when you thought all was lost

    4) Jurgen Melzer: It is about time

    5) Montanes beats Federer, then stages miracle comeback against Gil in Estoril, just when you thought he'd missed his chances

    1) Isner / Mahut- Longest match in history

    2) Soderling beating Fed for the first time and that's in a slam too.

    3) Ljubo winning masters.

    4) Nadal back on throne.

    5) (For me) Djokovic rising to #2 playing his absolute worst tennis.

    1. Meeting up with all my cousins after a long time. Went sight seeing and played lots of board games. Nothing better than family time.

    2. Springbreak in Miami, loads of fun , lots of hot women.

    3. The day we got done with exams and had a huge party.

    4. When my tennis elbow got well enough that I could hit the gym again.

    5. Knowing that the show 'lost' has finally met its end.

    1) Nadal's return to form in 2010. Glimpses in hard courts and confirmed with the clay "SLAM". Wins monaco losing 14 games in 5 matches(Maybe a record to stand test of time)
    2) Soderling beating Federer stopping his SF streak.
    3) Isner Mahut Match at wimby.
    4) Rafa winning the FO Wimby double for the second time.. Only person apart from borg in open era to do it twice.
    5) Berdych beating Federer at Wimby to stop Federer from a 8th consecutive final at wimby. Also relegates Federer to No.3 in world after almost 7 years.

    1. Reading Sentinel, Kraggy, TLW & Benhur's posts.

    My top 5 tennis moments so far...

    5. Nadal being too good for Murray in the Wimbledon SF match, I don't particularly like Nadal, but you can appreciate him being too good for Murray, a very, very talented player.

    4. Isner and Mahut!

    3. Roddick winning a Masters title, just a shame he couldn't win two!

    2. The return of Gasquet; he's not very good, but, at least he's back!

    1. Federer winning the Australian Open.

    1. Hewitt - Beats Federer at Halle after dropping the first to improve his record in grass court finals to 7-0 and ending his 13 match losing streak to Federer. Awesome to see my favorite player do well.

    2. Soderling FO run - proves Cesc' thread is a fail once again and plays insane tennis against Federer, unfortunatly comes up short again

    3. Isner v Mahut - epic, the only word to describe it.

    4. Roddick and Ljubcic winning 1000s - Great to see the old guys come back, and both played great against Nadal

    5. Berdych and Gulbis - Finally living up to the hype. Berd makes a gs final and ms final beating Fed both times. Gublis wins his first title and makes Nadal play his toughest clay match this year and almost beats him, so close. Also beats Federer that tournament, think it was Rome.

    Not tennis wise:
    1. Getting into college with a scholarship and chance to play DI tennis

    2. Visiting my friend at the same school and partying all weekend

    3. Winning three tournaments in a row in USTA and securing a spot in the top 50 in my section for the first time

    4. Prom night - epic

    5. NY Mets aren't out of the playoffs yet and the Flyers made a good run
