In terms of pure technical skill? AO finals, of course.

Besides the GS, I haven't seen many matches but my favorite overall is Amelie v Justine in Dubai. Some classic high caliber tennis all through out, they played almost every possible shot in tennis.

Dubai final was quite good. Can't say which one was the best...hmmm

Simona Halep
Juan Martin Del Potro

Jankovic def. Safarova 5-7, 7-6 (4), 6-2 ... and it's not even a question in my mind.

JJ has been involved in 4 matches which I think are up there for best of the year...loss to Clijsters in Sydney, win over Safarova at Wimby, loss to Ivanovic in L.A, win over Golovin in Toronto.

Serena/Justine was pretty good at Miami, too.

Australian Open Final

Serena thrashes Sharapova 6-1 6-2



You would have thought Sharapova would have put up a fight, but Serena took control and earned her slam.

For some reason, I forgot about that match. It ranks as the second best match of the year, falling behind the Ivanovic-Jankovic LA SF.

1. Ivanovic def. Jankovic 4-6 6-3 7-5 - LA SF
2. Jankovic def. Safarova 5-7 7-6(4) 6-2 - Wimbledon 3R
3. Sharapova def. Schnyder 3-6 6-3 9-7 - French Open 4R
4. Safarova def. Henin 7-6(5) 6-4 - Paris SF
5. Clijsters def. Jankovic 4-6 7-6(1) 6-4 - Sydney Final

Re: Match of the Year: You Decide! (Australia-pre U.S. Open)

In terms of pure enjoyment, Jankovic/Safarova Wimbledon R3 : 5-7 7-6(4) 6-2

- Don't know why the Serena/Justine match is on the poll for Wimbledon at all...

Are you a raving mental case with awesome groundstrokes? I'll probably like you...
Hantuchova : Goerges : Johansson : Rybarikova : Li

Learning to love/Liking the look of...
Zakopalova : Lucic : Krajicek : Cetkovska : Cibulkova
Gajdosova : Govortsova : Olaru : Robson : Pliskova

Re: Match of the Year: You Decide! (Australia-pre U.S. Open)

The AO final was garbage and only Serena fans that don't care about good tennis could nominate that. It was a complete drubbing and completely non-competitive. Serena was awesome, but only Serena fans could enjoy that match.

That being said.. I heard the Eastbourne final was pretty good, but I haven't seen any matches that I would deem "outstanding" this year.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.
