Well, in 2011 no one choked and it was quality in the last three finals. Hope some good tennis can happen again at the Flushing Meadows.

Re: Best Year Of The Last Ten In Grand Slam Finals?

Only three 3-setters since 2006 out of 23 finals.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
Please note this is a signature about Tatjana Maria

Re: Best Year Of The Last Ten In Grand Slam Finals?

1. 2002 because the best tennis player of the generation won 3/4 of the slams that year.
2. 2003 because the 2 best tennis players of the generation won the slams that year.
3. 2005 because the 4 best tennis players of the generation won the slams that year.
4. 2011 because the 2 players I wanted them to win slams this year won a slam finally.
5. 2007 because the 3 best players of the generation showed their successors how to win slam so convincingly.

Re: Best Year Of The Last Ten In Grand Slam Finals?

I read the question literally as if it asks which 4 slam FINALS (not which 4 slams) were collectively the best.

Those of 2003 and 2005 were clearly the best above the other years.

That was the 4 finals of 2005.
Wimbledon was great but the FO&USO titles were NID and duds.
